5 advantages of cloud computing security solutions
What is cloud security?
Cloud security protects cloud-based services, applications, and data through governance rules, technology, threat management, established procedures, and access restrictions.
When you partner with a trusted managed security service provider (MSSP) that you could not afford on your own, the security of your mission-critical data and applications can become a shared responsibility and expense. When cloud computing is offered securely through an OpEx model, you not only have fewer upfront costs, but you can also grow as needed. Gartner notes that “implementation is hampered by a lack of critical skills and tools for secure cloud computing deployments,” despite the widespread adoption of cloud strategies by enterprises looking to the future.
Security is a key factor in maximizing the benefits of cloud services. Everyone in the organization, from the CEO to the software engineers, needs to take a security-focused approach to cloud services. Hiring an MSSP with cloud implementation expertise to help you develop and execute your cloud strategy will help ensure that cloud implementation and execution is managed effectively.
5 key benefits of cloud security solutions
1.Proactive threat management
Dedicated and knowledgeable cloud architects ensure that security is implemented for all your endpoints (access ports, devices, and applications). A cloud security solution must include established procedures, visibility, tracking, 24/7/365 monitoring, and industry-leading technology to enable proactive and responsive threat management through a central management center. Threats such as denial of service (DDoS) attacks can be mitigated through constant monitoring and distribution of traffic.
2. Data security
A reliable cloud security solution protects the entire data lifecycle, from creation to deletion. Critical data is secured through encryption, robust passwords, multi-level authentication and validated backups. Access to data must be restricted using the principle of least privilege through internal and external disciplinary measures.
Data security and privacy are of paramount importance to both regulated businesses and consumers. Best-in-class cloud security solutions manage and maintain better infrastructure security to ensure regulatory compliance and protect sensitive data.
A scalable cloud computing system can adapt to fluctuating demand and change capacity, security, and pricing accordingly. For example, server capacity is increased when demand is high to avoid server downtime. However, if demand declines, prices are lowered accordingly. Why invest in new infrastructure when fluctuations in demand can cause expensive equipment to be underutilized?
5.High availability and support
High availability enables cloud computing to keep mission-critical systems running safely despite the failure of a single component. Your cloud-based data and applications are ready to go for your employee’s thanks to continuous monitoring, geographic redundancy, and failover mechanisms. A best-practice cloud security solution provides continuous protection for an organization’s digital assets and delivers remediation when disruptions threaten the environment. This includes 24/7/365 live monitoring to resolve issues in real time.
Security First Cloud Computing Approach
Trustncs – 5 Benefits of Cloud Computing Security SolutionsBefore a cyberattack forces you to act, you should make strengthening the security of your cloud environment a top priority. According to Gartner, 75% of security breaches are due to privilege misuse. You can mitigate this risk by implementing built-in authentication controls, role-based access, encryption, firewalls, governance, and policy enforcement.
Cloud security is not just a concern for IT – it’s integral to your overall business strategy. Therefore, cloud security planning should start with the CEO bringing cloud security specialists to the table. Forward-thinking organizations managing a multi-environment architecture should strengthen their IT departments with the support of an MSP who has expertise in delivering effective cloud security services.
