CLOUD SECURITY SERVICES
With this move comes plenty of security challenges for enterprises. Cloud security is a shared responsibility, making it more important to secure this space in alignment with experts. For IT professionals, it’s a defining statement of our time, shaping the infrastructure landscape. But then it is complex and challenging, with long-held operational models and fundamental business processes being completely re-imagined. While cloud is transformational it also requires a deep understanding of established and proven principles like zero-trust model in order to effectively put together a security strategy.
While securing the cloud is one aspect, a very detailed architecture and blueprint creation is important in order to secure the various vectors in the cloud. An architecture deep-dive workshop with the experts will further help put together a comprehensive recommendation.
Our SMEs can work with your teams to come up with this ideal blueprint via a detailed workshop.
The amount of movement of workloads from the data centre to the cloud brings with it new challenges that makes the whole journey complex and challenging. This transformation fundamentally challenges long held operational and business processes.
This includes the need for a deeper view of cyber security and a greater understanding of the shared responsibility model.
The primary business driver for cloud is the fact that improves business agility of an organization significantly. Add to this the flexibility from an operational point of view.
In traditional IT environments, the organization owns the whole stack; however, in the cloud, some responsibilities are transferred to cloud service providers. At some point, all enterprises will leverage most currently available cloud platforms, including the public IaaS, PaaS, FaaS and SaaS. The challenge is that all these platforms have different operational benefits, shared responsibilities, and security challenges.
Gartner stated that “through 2020, 95% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.” Customer misconfigurations and lack of visibility are primary reasons for failures in the cloud.
Cloud means different things to different people – for some its just a mechanism to access apps and mails for their daily tasks. For some its about infrastructure and storage management, for another group its about virtual machines, containers and deploying software in them and for a vast majority its about usage, visibility and compliance
While the cloud service providers ensure security of the infrastructure, the ownership of security inside the cloud and inside the workloads fall with the user. Securing traffic through traditional methods like firewall, anti-bot and sandboxing technologies also holds good for east-west traffic in the cloud.
Misconfigurations,lack of visibility and adherence to compliance standards like PCI-DSS, HIPAAplay a key role in tightening of the security of your cloud infra. CSPM allowscustomers to visualize and enforce their security posture consistently acrossthese public cloud services.
Given the amount of SaaS applications and mailing systems that are hosted in cloud environments, end-users are challenged from a security point of view while accessing these apps and mails. Securing these applications and mailboxes from account takeovers, phishing spams and identity thefts play a crucial role in the overall posture on the cloud.
The number of organizations transforming from a devops culture to a devsecops mechanism means that there is a need to secure the build, the infrastructure and the workloads, whether it is a serverless environment or containers, VMs etc.
