The cloud is a massively distributed computing environment with complex interdependencies. As a result, traditional security approaches like firewalls and securing the network perimeter are no longer sufficient to secure cloud assets. This is why many organizations use a variety of cloud security solutions to ensure their data and applications are protected. However, with a multitude of vendors offering different technologies and tools to meet various requirements, it is critical that the cloud security platform offers consistent visibility and controls across all aspects of a business’s operations.

A single cloud security solution should offer a full range of capabilities, including threat detection and response, application protection, visibility and analytics, data location tracking and control and a cloud access security broker (CASB). Ideally, this solution will support multiple cloud providers and deployment models as well as provide policy integration for existing on-premises security systems.

It is also important that a cloud security solution doesn’t add too much complexity or overhead to the business operations, and that it can be integrated into an organization’s infrastructure with minimal disruption. In addition, it should be easy to deploy and manage.

Finally, a good cloud security provider should include features such as encrypting data at rest and in motion, limiting access to a company’s most valuable information, and enabling two-factor authentication to prevent account hijacking. In addition, the solution should also proactively detect and block malware attacks in real-time while protecting the network with zero-trust network access to allow remote workers to securely work from anywhere in the world.
