Numerous quantifiable business benefits of adopting the cloud are compelling enterprises to consider a prominent role for cloud technologies in their overall IT strategies. However, when contemplating cloud adoption, the questions of data privacy and security are typically raised. Corporate policies or the regulations of the governing jurisdictions impact the way sensitive data is managed – where it is located, what type of data it is, who has access to it – and often determine the degree to which organizations can realize the value of cloud computing. When enterprises are considering migrating software applications from on-premise versions to cloud-based versions, they frequently need to address challenges such as data residency, industry compliance mandates and third party obligations surrounding the use and processing of sensitive data.
“Aberdeen’s research shows that by selecting and implementing security solutions that augment the current capabilities of the cloud solution providers, but remain under enterprise control, companies spend one-third less annually on a per-application basis — driven in part by better security and in part by more consistent and efficient operations. These findings align with the PerspecSys solution, which is designed to give enterprises an innovative new option for security by keeping their data out of the cloud and enabling them to control it within their own environment.”

“We are not tokenizing just one or two fields for credit cards, we tokenize anything and everything. We won’t send any client-related information outside of our firewalls. PerspecSys gives us peace of mind and enables us to take advantage of the cloud offerings that require us to have data outside the firewall.”
