Of all the benefits of moving to the cloud, this telecommunication company benefited the most when it came to reduced maintenance. Since the company didn’t have a strong security team to keep up with system patches, we believe that an unpatched vulnerability was the primary vector of attack. Moving to the cloud allowed the client to focus more on its primary business while the cloud provider handled critical infrastructure issues like patching, updates, and access control.
Cost savings is one of the main reasons why organizations migrate to the cloud. By moving to the cloud, this telecommunications company was able to lower its capital expenses since it no longer had to purchase or maintain hardware and equipment. These savings are quite significant since it not only includes the expense of the initial purchase, but also the cost of unused resources. With cloud-based services, customers only pay for the computing resources they utilize, avoiding the wasteful costs associated with server sprawl.
Many of the areas found within this telecommunications company’s on-premise environment were translatable to the cloud. The chosen cloud provider had many options to choose from when it came to selecting the instance most appropriate for each IT function. Migrating to the cloud does come with a number of new terms and those who are mainly familiar with on-premise environments might have to take some training to learn more about the cloud space. Compuquip Cybersecurity provided initial cloud training to familiarize the team at the telecommunication company.
