Cloud security refers to the technologies, policies, controls, and services that protect cloud data, applications, and infrastructure from threats—from a high-level perspective of security. In the post-COVID 19 era, and with the inevitable trend of remote working, it means protection of your company’s data that is stored online—protection from theft, leakage, and deletion by rogue agents using unlawful sophisticated means to access your company’s information.
Most aspects of security for cloud environments (public, private, or hybrid cloud) are the same as for any on-premise IT architecture. Legacy platforms usually offer access control using a perimeter security model. However, cloud environments are more highly connected, therefore making it far easier for all kinds of data traffic, especially threats, to bypass old-school defense systems—mandating the use of more complex security capabilities. The more common methods of providing cloud security include firewalls, penetration testing, obfuscation, tokenization, virtual private networks (VPN), and disabling access to public networks or open internet connections. However, there is no clear solution to modern sophisticated threats, except that it is certainly your IT team’s main responsibility to stay updated on the cloud security practices that are evolving and to keep pace with emerging threats.
