Cloud deployments are becoming ever more popular – not least because of their simplicity, speed, and seemingly lower costs. Even with business-critical applications, many companies are considering the cloud as an operational choice. On the other hand, opponents of cloud-based solutions often complain about patchy security and data protection concerns.
The secure access hub can also provide a secure foundation in the cloud. Airlock is designed for use in the cloud and automatically adapts to dynamic environments using DHCP and Cloud-init. Instances can be booted up quickly and simply from official Airlock cloud images, with absolutely no interactive installation required. Furthermore, clusters can be generated from active Airlock nodes by centralising session synchronisation. This allows for effortless scalability.
Airlock can be quickly and easily deployed in the Google Cloud. Existing Airlock licenses can be used for operation in the Google Cloud. The operation follows the BYOL model (Bring your own Licence).
In order to stay technically viable in digital transformation, companies must increasingly switch to hybrid cloud environments so that their data, applications and services are available from anywhere in the world and around the clock. This in turn requires new security approaches as the data and applications become more exposed and thus offer more attack surface.

Cloud versus on-premise deployment
On-premise, in the cloud, private, public or even hybrid? There are plenty of deployment options to choose from and making a decision is not always easy. Whatever you go for, do not compromise on security – choose Airlock. The Airlock licensing model ensures that a migration to the cloud will not entail additional costs.
