Double the benefits with Cloud and CloudSSL


Why go Cloud even if it is not the ultimate solution?

We all know that Cloud is a service model in which data is stored and backed up remotely and made available to users over a network (which in this case, the Internet). But how helpful can it get when fortuitous events take over?

Tsunami in Japan, Ondoy in the Philippines, and Sandy in the United States of America are few of the calamities which have greatly affected business operations. Many companies lost physical and on premise hard wares where they store database and sensitive corporate information. This leaves enterprises with nothing but hopes that damaged devices work again.

This is not anymore the usual case today. Companies can get rid of the dilemma of disaster recovery through a relatively simple solution– migrating to the cloud. Adopting the Cloud can unquestionably help business continuity. How? Cloud protects data by nature of its design as data are stored off-premise on a cloud of inter-connected data centers. This way there is better assurance that data remains untouched.

But of course in every pro there's got to be a con. Running your entire business under Cloud is not advisable mainly because companies handling the Cloud storage also have physical presence and because of this, they are not disaster proof. Moreover, what seems to be a bigger issue is that Cloud, just like any other hosting services, is prone to cybercriminals.

With the vision of developing secure and cost-effective technologies, GlobalSign came up with a solution that will allow users to confidently migrate to the Cloud without worries of being compromised nor lost - CloudSSL. Since in Cloud, information is repeatedly stored on data centers in many locations, you will always be able to retrieve data should anything go wrong.

GlobalSign’s CloudSSL is an SSL distribution service available via API and is designed specifically to help web services operate securely in the Cloud. It removes the restrictions of traditional SSL, such as one Certificate per IP address, and can be used across large virtualized environments without incurring additional license fees. CloudSSL partners make on-demand requests for SSL Certificates, including request for their customer base all within the top level Certificate issued to the Cloud partner. All the time meeting the highest security associated with the GlobalSign SSL brand.
