  • The security divide between on-premises and cloud infrastructures

    Fenwick & West LLP's IT services are delivered through a hybrid of on-premises, software-as-a-service and cloud infrastructures. "As we straddle the cloud and on premises, our security problems have just broadened," said CIO Matt Kesner.

    The Silicon Valley law firm's experience is typical of the growing number of companies that are running into legacy security obstacles as they move workloads to the cloud.
