Assessment analyzes 10 primary areas at risk in a cloud environment
BEAVERTON, Ore., March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Anitian Enterprise Security, the oldest information consultancy firm in the nation, announces a new service offering: the Cloud Computing Security Assessment.

Cloud computing and application outsourcing is currently one of the most discussed topics among IT leaders and engineers. Cloud computing offers many business and operational efficiencies that deliver measurable value to any organization. Cloud computing, however, is also fraught with security and operational risks.

"Anitian's Cloud Computing Security Assessment is the ideal way to evaluate Cloud solutions and obtain an unbiased and honest evaluation of all solutions being considered," offers Anitian President Andrew Plato. "There's a lot of hype out there about the Cloud and what it can or can't do. There's a lot of misinformation, too."

Anitian's Cloud Computing Assessment analyzes the ten primary areas at risk in a Cloud Computing environment:

1. User access, provisioning, control, and management 2. Regulatory compliance issues 3. Data security and integrity 4. Data, account, and network segregation 5. Security operations, management, and monitoring 6. Data forensics and investigation assistance 7. Data recovery and retention 8. Communication protocol security 9. Service level agreements 10. Business stability and long-term viability

The Assessment service includes an evaluation of the technologies in use, extensive research and interviews with the provider, and an unbiased, scientifically sound risk assessment.

"Our cloud assessment is another example of how Anitian's scientific methods of analysis deliver the insight and thought-leadership today's high performance companies need. Our decades of experience ensure our clients receive honest, actionable guidance that clears roadblocks and maximizes investments."
