King, external communications director at Verizon, said Thursday that one of the reasons why resources are stored in more than one cloud is to safeguard information.
“Multicloud environments reduce the risk of data loss by distributing resources across multiple clouds connected by a reliable network and providing access to security experts,” he wrote on the Verizon Enterprise Cloud blog.”
“Multicloud interconnect services should provide top-line security built into the connection to encrypt data in transit and at rest.”
King cited ease of use and expansiveness of reach as additional factors that enterprises need to consider when ramping up their multicloud interconnect services.
“Multicloud interconnect services should lend higher performance to cloud computing solutions,” he added.
“The underlying Private IP Service should offer varying classes of services that prioritize all types of network traffic, advanced reporting capabilities to predict and managed costs, and stringent SLAs.”
