Using Cloud Services to Improve Web Security
Companies entrust their security systems with a great deal of responsibility. Such systems must protect corporate assets from an unending proliferation of online attack, abide by regulatory compliance standards, monitor all legal exposure to stockholders and employees alike, and keep intellectual property from leaking through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets. In this series, author and IT expert Mike Danseglio explains many of these new threats and security requirements, and explores how Web security delivered through cloud services can address them. In addition to discussing the many concerns and questions over cloud-based security, Danseglio offers a number of cloud-based approaches, including protection strategies for mobile workers and portable devices. This series closes with a discussion of how Web security delivered through cloud services differs from large, on-site security infrastructures, and how this new setup can deliver cost-efficient and seamless protection against the dynamic attack landscape.
