Cloud Security

Cloud computing security or, more simply, cloud security denotes a collection of guidelines, technologies and controls put into place to assist in shielding the combined elements that make up cloud computing. These include data, applications and the infrastructure itself. 

Due to this concept, cloud services are growing in popularity.  However such innovation is itself based on the concept that services are provided independent of the need to see and understand the processes behind them.

Cloud therefore throws a whole range of unique security concerns into the mix.

Infrastructure as a Service (Iaas), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud service providers are becoming common. Due to the services being embraced by business, the rules about security are not always clear.

Service providers often believe that the customer is responsible for implementing security prior to deploying the solution. Customers may believe that security is an included and integral part of the Cloud solution they are purchasing, however this may not be the case.

When data and services are managed by a third party, cloud solutions present a unique security and governance challenge.

Sense of Security can assist in navigating the cloud security environment. We can assess your cloud provider for key security elements such as data segmentation, regulatory practices and compliance. We can customise these queries to accommodate known issues based on a wealth of security experience, and tailor this to include your organisation’s specific requirements or compliance commitments. SOS can assess the maturity of your in-place cloud solution to ensure that your cloud provider is performing in line with your expectations.
