Cloud Security

Cloud Security focuses on protecting data and applications in the cloud, especially in hybrid environments. It involves deploying technologies and processes that help protect data against attacks, malware and other cyber threats.

Tools and technologies to secure data in the cloud include encryption, firewalls, network traffic analysis and virtual private networks (VPNs). These protections scramble data so that it is unreadable if it is lost or stolen, preventing unauthorized access to data and protecting it from exposure by third parties.

Use two-factor authentication (2FA) and multifactor authentication (MFA) to verify user identity before granting access. Ensure that all access is logged and monitored for suspicious activity to detect breaches before they occur.

Implementation of policies to limit privileged access to cloud-based data is also important. These policies should be based on existing compliance requirements and practices, and updated to cover cloud services.

Protecting boundaries between tenants is a top priority for many CSPs. This includes ensuring that data is not available to other customers or their employees. This is often done through encryption and company policy that prevents cloud service workers from viewing the information of other customers.

A robust cloud security strategy is critical for businesses of all sizes. It must be flexible, scalable and built to work with modern approaches like distributed serverless architectures and ephemeral assets. It must also be automated and self-securing, so that it never drifts out of compliance. It should also be able to provide deep insights into anomalous behavior, so that it can quickly identify and respond to security breaches.
