Cloud Security Gets Easier

By the Center for Digital Government

Cloud computing has brought many benefits to state and local government, but like all technology trends, it doesn’t come with any guarantees for success. Security concerns remain one of the biggest stumbling blocks standing between cloud’s ambitious potential and bottom-line benefits. The good news is that new solutions, including cloud-based services for centralized identity management and access controls, are changing the cloud security landscape.
