Secure Multi-Cloud & Multi-Workloads: Intelligent Cloud Security Posture Management.
Cloud Security Services
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.

O365 Advanced Threat Protection
O365 Advanced threat protection is a category of security solutions that defend your people, data and applications against sophisticated malware or hacking-based attacks targeting sensitive data. Advanced threat protection solutions usually serve to focus on three main goals—early detection (detecting potential threats before they breach systems), adequate protection (the ability to defend against detected threats swiftly), and response (the ability to mitigate threats and respond to security incidents). Value Point has nearly 30 years of experience in helping businesses secure their infrastructure against cyber-threats.
Cloud Apps Security
Moving to the cloud offers greater flexibility for your users and IT. However, it also involves the arrival of new challenges and complexities in keeping your organization secure. Cloud App Security from Microsoft is a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) that operates on multiple clouds. It provides your business with rich visibility, better control over how your data travels, and highly complex analytics to identify and deal with cyber threats across the whole range of cloud services you deploy.
End-user organizations retain responsibility for securing the data they put in the cloud in the popular shared responsibility model. Meanwhile, cloud sprawl expands faster than the ability to secure it. Cloud-native SIEM solutions have proven to be very effective—ensuring cost savings, robust performance, scalability, and AI-ML automation advantages. Cloud-native SIEM solutions also provide centralized compliance reporting and a consolidated dashboard for compliance standards like HIPAA, PCI DSS, and so on—so your IT head can rest assured that your cloud infrastructure is properly secured in every way.
Cloud Access Security Brokers
A Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) is cloud-hosted software or on-premises software or hardware that acts as an intermediary between users and cloud service providers. Besides providing visibility, a CASB also allows you to extend the reach of your security policies from your existing on-premises infrastructure to the cloud, and create new policies for cloud-specific context. Value Point leverages its Cloud Security services partners to provide you the kind of cloud security you need for your business to be protected in the cloud.
DDoS On Cloud
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt the normal traffic of a targeted server, service or network by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic. Therefore, DDoS on Cloud platforms are designed to add a critical layer of cyber defense to your network and function in and “always on” mode—meaning they are inspecting traffic of both application and network layers during times of peace (business as usual), and when your cloud environment is under attack.
Identity and Access Management
Identity and access management (IAM) is about defining and managing the roles and access privileges of individual network entities—both, users and devices—to a variety of cloud-based and on-premises applications in enterprise IT. The core objective of identity and access management is to create and assign one validated digital identity per individual or item. Value Point offers identity and access management services as part of our cyber-security portfolio, to ensure your business has all the protection it needs.
Cloud Domain Services
Since the release of Cloud Domain Services such as Azure Active Domain (AD) you do not need to deploy domain controllers to manage users and groups, because you now have a cloud-based identity validation solution. Cloud Domain Services are now brought to you by Value Point as part of our cyber-security portfolio, in technical partnership with leading cloud security services provider Microsoft—so your business and users remain protected by the best cloud security services available.
Intune - Mobile Device Management
Intune – Mobile Device Management (MDM) is the process of securing the mobile devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets that are used in businesses, and then further enhancing corporate data security by monitoring and managing the access and use of these devices. Mobile Device Management allows IT admins to monitor and manage the mobile devices that access sensitive business data. It includes storing essential information about mobile devices, deciding which apps can be present on the devices, locating devices, and securing devices if lost or stolen.
