Cloud security, also known as cloud computing security, consists of a set of policies, controls, procedures and technologies that work together to protect cloud-based systems, data and infrastructure. These security measures are configured to protect cloud data, support regulatory compliance and protect customer privacy, as well as set authentication rules for individual users and devices. From authenticating access to filtering traffic, cloud security can be configured according to the exact needs of the business. Due to the fact that these rules can be configured and managed in one place, administration costs are reduced and IT teams have the ability to focus on other areas of the business.
Cloud computing is the best practice for companies aiming to have an IT ecosystem where employees can connect to applications and information from anywhere in the world, at any time and with any device. Furthermore, thanks to cloud computing, companies can manage SaaS applications and develop Internet of Things projects, connecting IOT devices to storage, computing or communication applications. However, this new way of understanding work in the company has some drawbacks: the more cloud computing expands, the more potentially the probability of a cyber attack grows. And that’s why companies need to focus on the issue of cloud computing security.
For companies migrating to the cloud, robust cloud security is critical. Security threats are ever-changing and becoming more sophisticated, and cloud computing is no less at risk than an on-premise environment. For this reason, partnering with a cloud service provider that offers best-in-class security tailored to your infrastructure is essential.
All cloud models are susceptible to threats. IT departments are naturally cautious about moving mission-critical systems to the cloud, and it is essential that the right security arrangements are in place, regardless of whether you are using a cloud-native, hybrid, or on-premise environment. T.net’s cloud security offers all the features of traditional IT security and allows businesses to leverage the many benefits of cloud computing while staying secure and also ensuring that data privacy and compliance requirements are met.
Protecting your company and your customers from cyber threats, which are always evolving and therefore increasingly dangerous, becomes a business priority. A priority that becomes essential from 2018, with the entry into force of the Regulation on the protection and free circulation of personal data (GDPR).
T.net’s Data Security Fabric offers high-performance protection to all IT infrastructure, through advanced technologies for Cloud, Endpoint, Email, Web Applications and Site to Site connections under a single pane of glass.
T.net guarantees the security of the network and its content, with secure access to products that will share intelligence, combining security processors, an intuitive operating system and applied threat intelligence to ensure security, exceptional performance and greater visibility and control, simplifying all management operations. Comprehensive visibility into applications and users across the network gives the IT team insights into traffic patterns and usage to enable intelligent resource allocation.
CENTRALIZED SECURITY: Just as cloud computing centralizes applications and data, cloud security centralizes protection. Cloud-based corporate networks are made up of numerous devices and endpoints that can be difficult to manage. Managing these entities centrally improves traffic analysis and web filtering, simplifies monitoring of network events, and results in fewer software and policy updates. Disaster recovery plans can also be easily implemented and operated when managed in one place.
REDUCED COSTS: One of the benefits of using cloud storage and security is that it eliminates the need to invest in dedicated hardware. This not only reduces capital expenditure, but also reduces administrative overheads. Where IT teams once dealt with fire safety issues reactively, cloud security offers proactive security features that offer 24/7 protection with little or no human intervention.
LESS ADMIN: When you choose a trusted cloud service provider or cloud security platform, you can say goodbye to manual security configurations and near-constant security updates. These tasks can be enormously resource-intensive, but when you move them to the cloud, all of the security administration happens in one place and is fully managed on your behalf.
RELIABILITY: Cloud computing services offer maximum reliability. With the right cloud security measures, users can securely access data and applications within the cloud, no matter where they are or what device they are using.
