Businesses are increasingly turning to cloud computing for flexibility, cost savings, and a new range of services offered by cloud vendors.
The users of cloud computing services and cloud vendors have a shared responsibility to protect private and confidential information. Mitigation of the security risks associated with cloud computing involves:
Protecting data moving into and out of the cloud
Protecting data at rest in the cloud
Authenticating servers in the cloud
Together, these three applications of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technologies provide fundamental protections essential for ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of data in the cloud.
