Adoption of the cloud is not only attractive for its technical prowess, but is becoming a competitive necessity.  Companies not only have the challenge of determining how to best leverage the cloud, but more importantly how to secure it in absence of the traditional defined network perimeter.  By focusing on the data, a new security model can be built based on Access Control, Data Encryption and Encryption Key Custodianship.  This new security model can be applied on both on-premise and public/private workloads, allowing enterprises to confidently embrace a multi-cloud workload strategy.
