Migrating servers from traditional data centers and into the cloud, has grown increasingly popular. For services like email, CRM systems, and even storage, cloud-based “Software as a Service” solutions has become the preferred choice for most businesses. The recent introduction of Microsoft Azure in Norway, have made cloud services even more relevant at a local level. However, new opportunities also introduce new challenges. An ever increasing share of our internal systems no longer run on our own physical servers, connected to our own data center switches, behind our own firewall in our own data center. Instead, they run in a cloud environment that may appear somewhat diffuse, and does not fully fit into our traditional idea of network security. In this presentation we will discuss challenges and opportunities of the new cloud based era, and how native functionality within the cloud services, as well as products and services that make up the Cisco Security Architecture, can maintain security and integrate cloud services into your internal network.
