Cloud Service Provider SLAs and Accountability

Clearly defined roles, responsibility and accountability of all parties involved are basic requirements for managing a cloud deployment. Organizations may want to consider a cloud services broker (CSB), typically a systems integrator (SI), who can help stitch together specialized services into an integrated service, providing a single point of accountability. Without this arrangement, cloud deployments with multiple niche technology vendors could end up becoming a complex maze of services to manage.

Enterprise cloud computing has matured, moving beyond the "what" and the "how" to the "when." Even so, security remains a major concern for organizations considering a move to the cloud. Fortunately, security services and tactics have also matured over the past few years, allowing more and more enterprises to migrate to the cloud.

A review of the enterprise security architecture is an absolute necessity in defining, monitoring and managing enterprise cloud deployments. This includes understanding the current security posture of IT assets, audit and compliance. It also forms the basis of creating security and compliance requirements for mainstream cloud adoption. In this slideshow, Madhavan Krishnan, of IT consulting firm Virtusa Corporation, has identified key security considerations that should be considered when transitioning to the cloud.
