What is Cloud Security? 

Cloud security encompasses in itself a mechanism, a collection of measures that helps an organization mitigate both internal and external threats. Cloud security becomes a major factor in an organization’s list of priorities as they move forward with their digital transformation strategy. Cloud-based tools and services can help an organization strengthen their information security.

Most common problems faced by organizations without cloud security

  1. Safeguard Data Security: In the absence of cloud security, your organization would need more control tools, misconfiguration, and identity access management. 
  2. Multi-Cloud Environment: It is challenging to track security challenges and requirements in a multi-cloud environment without cloud security.
  3. Risk of Data Loss: Recovering your data becomes a risky path to take when you have no backup to work with. 
  4. No Disaster Recovery Plan: Any business requires to recover quickly from an unforeseen attack, to resume day-to-day operations. In the absence of a disaster recovery plan your business is bound to face issues like data loss, reduced productivity.

According to Statista’ findings, 66% are apprehensive about data privacy and confidentiality in the cloud environment.

Most common problems faced by organizations while taking up cloud security

  1. Compliance Issues: Maintaining strict compliance in a hybrid or multi-cloud environment is challenging and can lead to a lack of visibility. 
  2. Data Loss: A significant concern is data loss, stemming from various factors. Security misconfigurations in cloud storage can expose data to risks.
  3. Downtime: Operations can be disrupted by downtime issues with service outages, technical issues, cyberattacks, etc.
  4. Identity Access & Management: Without proper user control measures, your infrastructure is under a constant threat. It can fall prey to data breaches, identity theft, etc.

Most common problems faced by organizations after migrating to cloud with security

  1. Configuration Errors: Errors in settings can lead to vulnerabilities, making systems susceptible to breaches.
  2. Denial-of-Service Attacks: Overwhelming traffic disrupts services, causing downtime and potential data exposure.
  3. Data Loss with Cyberattacks: Intrusions or ransomware incidents may result in critical data loss.
  4. Insecure Control Points: Weak access controls invite unauthorized entry, compromising data integrity.
  5. Unreliable Threat Notifications: Delayed or incomplete alerts hinder swift responses to emerging security threats.

Costs associated with cloud

Managing a resilient IT infrastructure involves overseeing critical elements that collectively impact the budget. This includes infrastructure costs, which encompass expenses related to hardware, networking devices, and data storage solutions. Licensing expenses are also significant, covering software licenses and ongoing subscriptions. Additionally, resource allocations, such as IT staff salaries, training programs, and fees for outsourcing specialized tasks, make up a substantial portion of the financial plan. These interconnected costs can strain your budget. To strike a harmonious balance among these expenditures, Rapyder can be your partner in efficiently managing a cost-effective and high-performance IT infrastructure.

Who can be your reliable/proven cloud security partner?

  1. Service providers who have a reputation in the industry and years of experience in the field to gauge their reliability.
  2. Service providers who have the qualifications, skills, and competency to ensure they can meet your security needs.
  3. A security partner who provide a range of services that match your specific requirements.
  4. Partners who offer powerful reporting tools for ongoing performance evaluation.
  5. Service providers whose solution adapts and scale according to your business requirements.

  2. Fix Misconfigurations: Address cloud vulnerabilities, especially security misconfigurations, which often involve overly permissive firewall rules or security groups.
  3. Contain Network Access: Create and maintain network diagrams to understand and assess your cloud environment’s dynamic nature, helping teams ensure security.
  4. Improve Resource Access: Establish secure and private connectivity to cloud resources, potentially through VPN setups or bastion/jump boxes.
  5. Securing IAM Policies: Strengthen security by maintaining robust Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies, reducing potential damage in case of a breach.
  6. Implementing Logging and Monitoring: Essential for identifying issues and uncovering malicious events, security logging and monitoring are crucial components of a cloud security program.
