Telecom SaaS is as secure as on-premises software, if not more so
Demystifying SaaS and public cloud security with Google Cloud, AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Nokia.
There is no issue of greater concern to telecommunications service providers (telcos) than data security. Therefore, telcos devote significant resources to protecting their customers and operations from unauthorized data access and disclosure. Up to now, that’s made many reluctant to shift their network operations and management to software-as-a-service (SaaS) models that rely on the public cloud. But as cost savings, speed, and business agility increasingly become competitive must-haves, telcos need to overcome this historical reluctance and seize the full benefits of SaaS.
In this first-of-its-kind white paper, security experts from AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Nokia address the four primary areas of SaaS concern, which apply to enterprises across all sectors (and not just telcos):
Ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all data, including personal data.
Controlling access to and providing protections for the collection, use, storage and deletion of personal data to benefit the individuals or organizations the data relates to.
Maintaining knowledge of and control over the location of data.
Asserting exclusive legal jurisdiction over data or rendering data inaccessible to a foreign jurisdiction.
