Cloud Security is fundamentally the protection of your data, your businesses data, and your customers data, which is stored in a Cloud Environment.
This protection is achieved by implementing a cloud security architecture which is applicable to the Cloud technologies, the service provider, service model (e.g. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) and deployment model (e.g. Hybrid, Private, Public) that you have purchased and use.
Our cloud security services and design principles allow us to assist you in achieving the protection you need to secure your business' data from cloud security threats.
In order to ensure that your business data and customer data is protected appropriately, it is crucial that security of your cloud environment is approached with the level of respect it needs.
The sophistication of cyber and cloud security threats to cloud environments is increasing in line with the number of businesses moving to the public cloud. Therefore, maintaining a strong security posture for your cloud environment is a must to mitigate those cloud security risks.
Cyber threats are not the only threat by which your sensitive data may be leaked, lost or corrupted. Accidental threats such as misconfiguration, assigning incorrect privileges or not applying appropriate security controls within your cloud environment, are all internal threats that may lead to a compromise and eventual data loss.
Not only will Aspirenet Ltd's cloud security services and design principles give you the assurance and confidence that your business data and customer data is protected, it will also assist with meeting any legal, contractual, or regulatory compliance your business needs to meet.
As with your on-prem environment, your cloud environment is as safe and secure as you make it. The security controls you put in place should be driven by the amount of risk you are willing to take with transferring your data from on-prem to the cloud.
The Big Cloud Service Providers (CSP’s) have excellent native tools which will allow you to secure and manage your data in your cloud environment. but these tools are worthless unless you know how and where to apply them.
When you hear in the news of information leaks from cloud services, the most common reason for those breaches is due to misconfiguration of security controls followed by compromised accounts.
Your cloud environment can be safe and secure, but only if you are prepared to put the effort into making it that way.
With the businesses operational & financial benefits that come with a Cloud Environment, more and more organisations are transforming from an on-prem solution to a Cloud Environment.
Unfortunately, what is not fully understood by some of these organisations, are the cloud security risks that the business will face with a move to a cloud solution, and the clarity of where the responsibility lies surrounding the security of your business data.
Decisions surrounding SLA’s, protective monitoring, data encryption, backups, patching, recovery etc, must be made to ensure your data remains secure and under your control. These decisions should underpin new policies, procedures and guidelines created and published to support the new Cloud Environment and mitigate those cloud security threats your business faces.
Whichever service model you have procured or are planning to procure (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) along with whichever deployment model, (Hybrid, Private, Public) our cloud security services can assist you in identifying where the gaps in your new cloud security operations lie, and help you gain the assurances you will need and want, in order for you to have the confidence that your business data and your customers data, remains secure.
