Cloud Encryption: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The Good

Cloud computing has come a long way in the last few years. Most organizations have adopted the cloud to some degree, and SaaS in particular looks set to continue its growth. The cloud’s benefits can’t be denied, after all. And security tools like cloud encryption and tokenization can help make it a safe place—in some cases, safer than enterprise networks themselves, since there are more total breaches inside enterprise networks than in the cloud. Without those tools, though, your data’s about as safe as an unguarded stagecoach in the Wild West. See the cool infographic “Eight Everyday Things Encryption Protects” and you’ll get the picture even quicker!

The Bad

Data breaches are everywhere. In the first half of 2012, 189 data breaches exposed about 13.73 million records. And the number of data breaches continues to grow. In recent news, Adobe had both customer and source code stolen from its systems, in what GigaOm is saying “may be the biggest compromise of a software vendor’s security” in the last two years. Zendesk was breached this year; so were Evernote, LexisNexis, Dunn & Bradstreet, and Altegrity’s Kroll Background America. Without cloud encryption and other protections in place, your data, like the data of those providers’ customers, is vulnerable.

The Ugly

The key challenge lies in trust. Ideally, an organization should be able to trust both its cloud providers and its own employees to adhere to data security best practices. We don’t live in an ideal world, though. In multi-tenant environments, flaws in one tenant’s environment could introduce vulnerabilities in others. Employees, meanwhile, make mistakes, circumventing corporate cloud use policies for the sake of convenience. And hackers may be either looking for an opening into your environment, or already inside. The ugly truth is that many factors work against your enterprise’s need for data privacy in the cloud.
