Cloud Security Assessments

Migration to cloud is a mainstream trend in terms of workload distribution and services design & delivery. Modern organizations, end up in maintaining a hybrid model where the actual production workload resides in one or more IaaS or PaaS providers and only a small portion of critical services is hosted on-premises.

Maintainig a proper security model between multiple environments is indeed a headache and risks arise frequently.
