Cloud security refers to a set of policies, controls, and technologies to protect data, applications, and infrastructure services. All of these components work together to help data, infrastructure, and applications stay secure. These security measures protect a cloud-computing environment against external and internal cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities.
While businesses accelerate digital transformation (DX) initiatives, aggressively retool operations, and rethink entire business models with cloud services, this broad adoption is also creating new opportunities for cyber-criminals to conduct cyber fraud. As these organizations move quickly to digitally transform their operations, effective security controls are often an afterthought. Often, businesses refrain from proven best practices and make it difficult—if not impossible—to accurately assess and manage the risk. As businesses adapt to ongoing change and move aggressively to the cloud, disparate perspectives and agenda need to be unified into a cohesive strategy. Organizations who treat the journey to the cloud as an opportunity to proactively cultivate a culture of “security first” will have to balance between enabling the use of cloud services and protecting sensitive transactions and data.
Cloud security provides organizations with an approach to address security requirements and ensure organizations adhere to regulatory compliance requirements. Effective cloud security requires multiple layers of defense throughout the cloud technology stack comprised of:
Machine learning and artificial intelligence extend contextual awareness technologies across a cloud security portfolio. With cloud security, businesses have protection across IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS, extending security to the network, hardware, chip, operating system, storage, and application layers.
