Cloud security solutions in action
I'll share an example of what proactive cloud security looks like. A financial services company had made a quick and experimental move to cloud.
As a result, the company struggled to manage its overall security posture. Genpact's cloud team came in to help. We reviewed the company's workloads, industry regulations, data security issues, and existing cybersecurity policies and standards. We then developed and implemented a multi-year roadmap to heighten and standardize cloud security helping accelerate the organization's cloud-enabled digital transformation initiatives. To add further depth, we trained cloud security experts in-house.
Today, security issues are flagged early in the development process, which allows employees to experiment, innovate, and embrace the cloud without compromising compliance. The company has securely moved a greater number of workloads to the cloud and launched more cloud-enabled business services globally. Moving forward, the company has a greater understanding of cloud security and replicable practices to support future cloud success.
This is just one example, but the same principles can apply to every industry. When organizations can establish and maintain a secure cloud environment, innovation and competitive advantage aren't far behind.
