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. These solutions also offer ways for agency IT managers to boost information security, make information management easier and address challenges around governance policies. This Center for Digital Government thought leadership paper, sponsored by Symantec, discusses six of the top IT challenges facing state and local leaders and how cloud computing – with the right security, management and governance controls – can help overcome them.
