Organizations around the world are embracing the economic and operational benefits of cloud computing. Whether organizations are extending internal resources or fully deploying on Microsoft Azure, the ability to take advantage of the business benefits of cloud require that organizations continue to meet key security requirements. Azure delivers a trusted cloud infrastructure on which customers can design, build and manage their own cloud applications and infrastructure. While Azure provides security controls for the infrastructure and change to virtualization layers, deploying organizations are responsible for deploying and maintaining security for the guest operating systems, applications, and data in order to protect against malware attacks, zero-day vulnerabilities and data breaches.

This Webroot whitepaper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications. In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as:
• Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers
• More comprehensive signature and URL database
• Supports remote users more securely and without the cost of putting servers in every location
Although providing significant business benefits, recent technological advances in mobility, cloud computing and big data have also dramatically complicated the task of managing IT resources. Mitigating the challenges associated with these technologies allows IT organizations to satisfy existing SLAs and leverage technology to support innovative new services which are designed to improve productivity, collaboration and customer satisfaction.

There has never been a better time to shop for a new phone system, due to the growing number of service and equipment options. In today's competitive environment, businsses are looking for ways to lower expenses, eliminate multiple vendors and communication providers, refocus IT staff on other areas of business, and allow employees to easily connect regardless of location and device.

Fact: In the next three years, 53% of CFOs estimate that over half of their enterprise transactions will be delivered through the cloud, up from the 12 percent who use that delivery mechanism today. In addition to non-core business processes like project management and email, strategic CFOs are also starting to embrace the cloud to deliver core ERP processes, including financial management, human capital management, and procurement. Rather than view the cloud just as a cost-saving platform, they recognize the strategic benefits that the cloud delivers to get critical growth initiatives up and running quickly, whether that’s using the cloud to quickly upgrade to a new application, or delivering new mobile or analytical capabilities to employees.
In a relatively short time, cloud computing, specifically Infrastructure-as a-Service, has shifted from a new but unproven approach to an accepted, even inevitable, model. Driven by flexibility and efficiency, the question facing most organizations is not whether the cloud is part of their infrastructure plans, but which applications and workloads to move to the cloud and when. But even as the benefits of cloud and hosted models have become apparent, concerns persist about security, and an assumption lingers that the cloud is inherently less secure than an enterprise data center environment.
In this whitepaper, you'll find scenarios and economic justification that reveals total costs and expected benefits from deploying cloud services vs. reinvesting in inflexible, capital intensive on-premise systems.
Business happens at the speed of “right now” across departmental, physical, geographical and organizational lines.

What’s needed is a solution that offers the benefits of cloud-based file access along with the control and
manageability of local file systems.
