Cloud Security Alliance Licenses CSC's Cloud Trust Protocol
Beginning today, CSC Cloud has granted a no-cost license for its Cloud Trust Protocol (CTP) to serve as a pillar of the Cloud Security Alliance’s cloud Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) stack. The stack is essentially a toolkit for anyone involved in cloud to ensure they comply with best practices and standards. CSC strongly believes in best practices, standardization and the critical issue of transparency in cloud computing, which is why we are providing our CTP out to the community through CSA.
CSC created the CTP to provide cloud consumers with the right information so they can confidently make choices about what processes and data they move to a cloud. It provides transparency into cloud service delivery, and offers cloud consumers important information about security while offering cloud service providers a standard technique to prepare and deliver information to clients.
The CTP puts IT risk decision-making back in the hands of the cloud consumer by providing the data they need as they need it. Service providers that implement the CTP can provide information about the individual elements of transparency within the CTP as they apply to their client's applications and workloads.
The CTP is now available and can be downloaded for free. Through this unique licensing agreement, the CSA plans to integrate the CTP into this stack and distribute it at no charge to enterprises, consumers and cloud service providers, enabling them to bring workloads more efficiently to the cloud.
