Cloud and Virtual Data Storage Networking: Being Secure Without Being Scared
Securing data infrastructure resources in cloud, virtual, networked, and storage environments presents a number of risks and security challenges. Security actions must cover physical security, logical security, multitenancy, and deciphering encryption. Measures must also be taken to eliminate blind spots, or "dark territory". Network storage security environments are unique to individual network needs and should be designed to protect data without inhibiting productivity. This paper details techniques, technologies, and best practices that can be used to secure information resources most efficiently. Included is a security checklist providing basic items pertaining to storage and network storage security.
