Helsinki, Finland. 6 September 2022 – WithSecure, formerly known as F-Secure Business, has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) to help define and raise awareness of best practices that can help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.
Thanks to cloud computing’s flexibility, efficiency, and other benefits, more and more companies are relying on it for their IT needs. A recent Nash Squared survey* found that 90% of digital leaders have some kind of cloud implementation up from 69% in 2020.
However, companies migrating various processes and assets to the cloud are facing new, sometimes unexpected risks. These include increased complexity, the widespread consolidation of business around a few key cloud service providers, understanding the shared-responsibility security model utilised by many cloud services, and more.
According to WithSecure chief technology officer Christine Bejerasco, joining the CSA gives WithSecure an opportunity to work with more organisations on the importance of security as they move to the cloud.
“CSA builds WithSecure’s position in the frontlines of cloud security and strengthens our future capabilities to help clients and partners secure cloud environments,” says Bejerasco. “Furthermore, working with the CSA allows us to join forces with other security-minded providers of cloud services and collectively raise the bar for security on software-as-a-service, infrastructure-as-a-service, and platform-as-a-service offerings. It also offers the opportunity for joint research which amplifies our reach to educate users on the advantages and challenges in the cloud that they need to be aware of.”
“We’re pleased to welcome WithSecure to the Cloud Security Alliance,” says Jim Reavis, co-founder and CEO, Cloud Security Alliance. “WithSecure’s extensive work supporting organisations as they move to the cloud gives them valuable experience to share with stakeholders as they tackle different cloud security challenges. We look forward to collaborating on how we can ensure the cloud is a safe, productive environment for people and organisations.”
