blog-2014-03-20-fiIt’s all well and good to talk about working in the cloud—the convenience, the cost-efficiency, the scalability.  But, how does it really all work? Doesn’t the easy accessibility and mobility also mean that choosing the cloud provides less security?

 

In short, no. Multiple layers of isolation in an SAP environment are leveraged to mitigate risk in a public cloud, maintaining security and data integrity, including that of systems, databases, networking and users.

 

I’ll be talking about this exact topic on March 25th at the Basis & SAP Administration 2014 event in Orlando, and you should stop by to see what this means for your company.

 

You’ll learn how to and the importance of disaster recovery (DR) in the cloud, including the frequently overlooked elements which can make or break a DR plan, including critical systems, networking and the human element.

 

I’ll also be providing a phased outline of “foolproof” methodologies for projection planning. It will include steps from preparation through post-processing, and I’ll create a sample project timetable and milestones for your reference. Join me on March 25 to see how you can create a safer, more secure environment for your organization.

 

If you’re unable to attend, I’d still love to discuss your company and its SAP security needs. Contact us, or give us a call at 1-888-SYM-CORP.
