When corporate data is outside the data center's four walls, another entity now shares access and control. We'll explain the key considerations around access management, authentication, and endpoint protection.
We'll look at the way cloud providers deliver top-notch security - for physical resources and at the perimeter. What happens inside each customer's partition may be another story.
