How would you secure data for transport in the cloud?

This is a frequently asked question. Don’t forget to dive in more in-depth on this topic.
When transporting data in a cloud computing environment, keep two things in mind: Make sure that no one can intercept your data as it moves from point A to point B in the cloud, and make sure that no data leaks (malicious or otherwise) from any storage in the cloud.
A virtual private network (VPN) is one way to secure data while it is being transported in a cloud. A VPN converts the public network to a private network instead. A well-designed VPN will incorporate two things:
A firewall will act as a barrier between the public and any private network.
Encryption protects your sensitive data from hackers; only the computer that you send it to should have the key to decode the data.
Check that there is no data leak with the encryption key implemented with the data you send while it moves from point A to point B in a cloud.
