Security as a Foundation
The Cloud Security Alliance notes that, “the lower down the stack the
Cloud provider stops, the more security the consumer is tactically responsible
for implementing and managing.” Many
cloud offerings, including traditional Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud
providers, focus on a few technical security controls and leave security to the
customer. ReliaCloud is different. ReliaCloud’s nine-pillared, inclusive control
model covers administrative, physical, and technical controls that serve as a
foundation for information assurance (Illustration 1).
ReliaCloud employs a combination of standard security controls as well
as optional, advanced capabilities that can be added as needed to suit your
unique security requirements. ReliaCloud
is based on delivering the best combination of controls needed to guarantee oversight
of our operations.
