Having an effective way to secure the cloud is critical to protect systems, data, and the infrastructure that operates all could-based technologies. Different security options can be used by businesses based on their use of the cloud and the need for standard or enhanced types of security protocols and practices.
A very important advantage of using the cloud is the ability to customize the security features. A business can determine the best cloud security solutions for their data. This can include specific authentication rules and allowed devices for access to the system as well as the use of web application firewalls.
A key starting point for any cloud security solutions is to determine any vulnerability issues with the current security protocols and services. A Vulnerability Assessment combined with Penetration Testing is ideal as an initial test and an ongoing audit of the security.
Through this process, issues with gaps or missing components in security are quickly detected and addressed, reducing the risk of zero-day attacks and other security risks. Ongoing, routine testing provides accurate information on the current security level across the cloud.
DDOS or Distributed Denial-of-Service attacks are included in robust cloud security solutions. The flooding of a network with excessive traffic can disrupt businesses and result in lost revenue and clients. Proactively managing DDOS protection as a cloud service eliminates this concern.
Top hosting services provide Security-As-A-Service of SECAAS for cloud-based applications. With ongoing, proactive monitoring, any changes from normal patterns are detected in real-time and addressed, reducing the possibility of any breaches due to vulnerabilities in the system.
