Security by Design

Security by design is at the heart of any Sword cloud migration project.   

Security posture in the cloud is a key aspect of cloud migration and adoption. Risk reduction and mitigation underpins this process. 

Sword works with you to ensure existing information security policies or requirements are adhered to in the cloud environment and that these can be reported on from a compliance perspective. 


Migration Planning

We will work with you to create a detailed migration plan to identify application services suitable for migration, based on the supportability and applications dependencies. The identification of easy wins ensures a quick return of value to your organisation. 

Sword works with you to ensure the migration of the workloads from the on-premise infrastructure run smoothly, using vendor cloud migration tools where possible to reduce cost. 


Cloud Landing Zone

For new cloud environments, we support your creation of a landing zone, based on industry best practice.

Through a detailed design a cloud landing zone provides key features covering technical security and cost optimisation, to meet the customer’s needs for the existing migration and to ensure future expansion capabilities are met.
