Cloud Security ensures the safety of an organization’s data and applications hosted in a third-party cloud environment. It combines various best practices and technologies to safeguard the integrity of the data and workloads. This includes encrypting data at rest, in use and in motion, adopting strong password policies with 2FA or MFA, implementing cloud edge protections such as firewalls, IPSes and antimalware, and providing visibility and control over the location of the data and workloads.

The cloud is an increasingly important computing environment, enabling organizations to deploy and access their digital assets more rapidly, reliably, and securely. However, it is not without its risks. Cyberattacks are increasing and the vast majority of data breaches are targeting cloud-based digital assets. Frictionless security is the best way to protect your company’s cloud-based digital assets.

A security platform that provides a comprehensive overview of your company’s security posture in the cloud is essential. This platform will identify all the cloud services you use, understand their configurations, and help you to determine whether they are meeting security best practices. Look for a solution that automatically collects alert data from multiple cloud providers, detects deviations in user and entity activity using behavioral analytics, and helps analysts to quickly respond to attacks on your cloud-based systems using threat intelligence.

CSPs are acutely aware of the impact a single security incident may have on their finances and brand reputation, and go to great lengths to secure data and applications. However, the handling of security responsibilities is rarely entirely the responsibility of the CSP and often distributed via a shared responsibility model.
