Cloud Compliance: How to Pass Your Audits while Managing Data in the Cloud

Those who migrate to the cloud for business do so to take advantage of the agility and increased collaboration afforded by this technology. Some cloud critics insist that moving to the cloud requires an untenable trade of security and control in order to reap the cloud’s greatest benefits, but we can show you how, with just a little effort, there’s no need to compromise when it comes to data integrity.

We know that cloud adopters care just as much about data management, protection, and accessibility as their counterparts still managing data on premises. Unfortunately, many believe the SaaS vendors have them covered when it comes to meeting compliance standards. However, there are many requirements that remain the responsibility of the organization itself.

No need to worry, though- we are here to help these organizations who wish to preserve data integrity and pass audits while also enjoying the many benefits of the cloud. In a new white paper you can find below, we outline what you need to know regarding best practices for protecting SaaS application data from loss and keeping auditors happy.

If you’re managing your data in SaaS applications like Google Workspace or Salesforce, or you’re considering migrating to the cloud, there are several of these mandates and regulations to address so you can pass your audits and properly protect both your business and its customers.
