What does it take to secure the cloud?

This is a particularly important question to answer, especially now that more businesses are embracing the outstanding benefits it offers with ACaaS and managed video services. Transitioning from on-premise to adopting security services run in the cloud, however, brings unique cybersecurity vulnerabilities; therefore, it is a vital task to understand how to best protect your organization’s data.

Although cloud-based services are no more vulnerable than on-premise solutions — and might even be considered safer —, these are the most significant cloud security trends in 2022 to avoid any possible data breaches, malicious insiders, and account hijacking in your organization.

A centralized platform

Using disparate cloud-based security systems and more than one cloud provider might be problematic. Unifying all managed services under one platform is ideal as it leads to the smooth functioning of security operations and offers better visibility and protection.

Intelligent security

Adopting AI and Machine Learning solutions to address physical and cybersecurity threats is critical. Businesses investing in these technologies develop better customer trust and end up expanding their customer base.

Follow the Zero-trust model

The zero trust model offers complete security by assuring no one gets access to data until their identity is authenticated. It ensures the users get access only to the information that they need.

Shared Responsibility Model

Research shows that if you are new to the cloud, you are more likely to assume that others will let you know of a data breach — and less likely to be proactive in securing your cloud.

Best-in-class security providers take care of everything from physical networks, access control hardware, servers, and storage to, virtual networks, runtimes, operating systems, and even applications. In addition, they have advanced solutions designed to prevent attacks from cybercriminals. Nevertheless, end-users are also responsible for the security and compliance of their cloud.

Internal security best practices:
  • Effective management of groups and roles to ensure users have always the appropriate levels of permission.
  • Make sure a strong password policy is enforced among employees.
  • Limit the scope of users who can modify or delete data.
  • Train staff on cybersecurity threats and how to avoid/respond to them.

Cloud-based solutions and managed services are allowing companies to enhance their security while minimizing their costs. As more businesses depend on cloud infrastructure, protecting data with suitable strategies is critical to enhance enterprise security.
