Ward Solutions : Pat Larkin
|Ward Solutions has been working with clients for more than 15 years providing them with information security services. During that time we have been a part of our clients’ journey towards enterprise cloud based services. Here are some of the trends we see:Security is front and centre
As more enterprise applications move to the cloud, the issue of information security moves to the forefront of the executive agenda. As customers, employees and partners demand more online services the challenge of protecting businesses’ critical information assets magnifies.Many of our clients chose to partner with an expert in the information security area, companies like Ward, who are 100% focused on information security with highly skilled team who are at the leading edge of information security.Public versus Private
There is no-one size fits all — be that public or private cloud and therefore increasingly we see customers mixing public and private cloud services based on their differentiated service and security needs.For those businesses with applications most suited to a private cloud or hybrid cloud combinations we see a growing demand for full end-to-end managed security services, from design and build of these private and hybrid cloud combinations through to the running of the environment and ongoing secure release of business applications and services.
Outsourcing security as a managed service to an experience provider is a growing trend which is proving to be a smart business strategy for many enterprises in Ireland.
