We often hear clients and colleagues say things like, “We’d love to move our IT to the cloud, but for security reasons we’re keeping everything on prem.”
Or “Sure, the benefits of being a cloud-first organization sound great…but what about security? With all of the data leaks and hacking going on, our Board just won’t consider making the move.”
Sound familiar? When I first started looking at moving eSilicon’s High-Performance Computing chip design workloads to the cloud, I faced similar objections. At the time I was eSilicon’s CIO and Vice President of Global IT, and our Board’s two major concerns were cost and security.
