Encryption Key Management for the Cloud



As enterprises move their data into the cloud, their number one concern is security.  Cloud environments are fundamentally shared.  This means that enterprises are sharing computing resources, disk storage, and the infrastructure of the cloud provider.  As cloud environments get more complex, enterprises need to be more concerned than ever about cloud security.  Questions like “Who has access to my data” and “Am I inadvertently sharing my data with other people and I don’t know it?” are very serious concerns that need to be addressed in a cloud environment.  Patrick Townsend, Founder and CEO of Townsend Security, discusses these concerns and the important role that encryption and key management play in keeping your enterprises data secure.
