Cloud Security

Cloud Security helps protect data from threats that can affect your business. It includes tools and practices that provide an invisible fort of protection, keeping your information safe from hackers, malware and other cyber attacks while also ensuring compliance with regulations and policies.

While enterprises may insist on private clouds — the internet equivalent of an isolated office building or campus — individuals and SMBs must manage public clouds, which share infrastructure with other customers. This can be dangerous if those other clients’ data is sensitive or contains business secrets. Managing multitenancy security requires a strong cloud strategy that uses segmentation to limit the potential impact of a breach or downtime caused by third-party storage and internet access providers.

Identity and Access Management (IAM) is another important aspect of cloud security. It controls and monitors the access privileges of users who have access to your cloud environment. It’s crucial to use strong authentication methods like MFA and 2FA, as well as password management to ensure that only authorized personnel can enter your systems and data. It also involves implementing granular IAM policies, as well as conducting security awareness training for employees and other third-party partners who may be using cloud resources on behalf of the company.

Finally, a good cloud security solution needs to have robust threat detection and response capabilities. These include network detection and response (NDR) and AI for IT operations (AIOps), which collect data on network and cybersecurity environments, analyze it and then help administrators detect and respond to threats.
