My role and responsibility is to check the services of the security platform in question to see if it fits the requirements. For example, there are members of our team who are looking to leverage some services from the public cloud, I just look at their business requirements and see what services they want to leverage on a solution. Physically if there is something that is lacking in security that I can foresee, I explain the best practices to follow to enable additional security controls. This may be making stronger authentications, authorizations, or having stronger data security and encryption. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. Depending on an organization's requirements and budgets, cloud services would be recommended. A user must just decide what they need and stick to one thing.

I'd definitely recommend Amazon AWS CloudSearch. On a scale of one to ten I'd rate it an eight.

Yesterday, a friend asked me about our migration. He asked what worked and where we host our system. I would tell you the benefits of AWS and the latest in communication between Egypt and AWS. NTRA is the government communication in Egypt. It is very good and very bad. You might have to wait two weeks and just accept the communication. That's it. I recommended AWS for my friend yesterday. I would rate this solution as nine out of ten. This is the best web hosting solution. It might not be excellent because of the issues I mentioned. If these issues were addressed, maybe it would be ten out of ten.
