Cloud Technology has revolutionized the means and velocity that businesses can bring their products to market. The transformational advantages of Cloud also bring a unique set of challenges that must be addressed to avoid eroding the innate value of Cloud technology.

Two strategic and critical areas key to an organization’s success in effectively deploying cloud technologies are a Cloud Technology Strategy and Cloud Security Strategy.

The over-arching objectives of the Cloud assessments is to assure that your organization has implemented and is following industry best practices, and that you are in compliance with legislative regulatory requirements. All risks are identified and scored.

Our Cloud Strategy Service is based on our proprietary Adaptive Risk Model (ARM) methodology. The Cyturus ARM identifies deficiencies, measures potential business impact, and recommends prioritized mitigation actions across the entire enterprise. This service is then automatically ingested into the Cyturus ARM framework for deeper examination and lateral impact as part of the ongoing continuous improvement cycle.
