Confident Pursuit of Payoffs, Trusting Cloud Foundations in Security and Transparency
Ron Knode, CSC
An Introduction to the Foundations of Digital Trust Inherent in CSC Trusted Cloud Services
IT’S ALL ABOUT ENTERPRISE PAYOFFS
Nearly every survey on cloud use identifies “security” as a major obstacle to wider cloud adoption. This ranking by industry and government leaders has been a consistent survey result since the earliest network computing services first claimed the name “cloud computing” at the dawn of the 21st century. While most cloud providers claim to offer good security capabilities and reliable results, only CSC has based its entire cloud development and delivery program on the expanded power and payoff potential of “digital trust in the cloud” as first reported in CSC’s own research results in 2009 and 2010.
The CSC trusted cloud initiative has been devoted to the preparation and delivery of cloud services that not only satisfy client value expectations for enterprise agility, flexibility and economy, but also offer new payoff possibilities by combining strong security with transparency services to generate trust and open up new possibilities for enterprise value. The creation of (multi-tenant) CloudCompute and (single-tenant) BizCloud™ offerings that combine the best of public and private cloud characteristics with strong security and transparency capabilities are all aimed at generating enterprise payoffs for cloud service consumers. The selection of technology partners with rich cloud technology portfolios has given CSC the most solid cloud platform available, and allowed CSC to innovate cloud services that respond to “business first” and create new opportunities to capture cloud payoffs.
