What are critical architectural factors for implementing cloud key management?
Enter BYOK. The industry is trending toward giving customers more control over their cryptographic keys. All of the major cloud vendors now have support for Bring Your Own Key (BYOK), so that organizations can maintain control over the keys used for their data and applications, giving them greater data portability and flexibility. The ability to shift from one cloud provider to another — including multiple cloud providers at once — gives organizations options.
Especially when it comes to managing workloads, handling spikes and surges, and providing disaster recovery — not to mention satisfying audit requirements involving backup or redundancy capabilities.
