Understanding your Shared Responsibility Cloud computing security is critical and is a shared responsibility between you and the cloud service provider. The cloud service provider is responsible for the security “of” the cloud which include:
hardware/global infrastructure such as regions, availability zones, edge locations
software layer such compute, storage, database and networking
whereas you are responsible for security “in” the cloud, entailing client and server-side encryption, network traffic protection, firewall configuration identity and access management as well as customer data. Implementing a superior cloud computing security model will maintain data privacy and data security and will afford you the ability to easily address/implement the following:
What happened to my data?
Logging and auditing capabilities
Who is accessing my data?
Principles of least data access
Visibility and control We will help you gain control and the trust you need to securely run your business with the most flexible and secure cloud computing environment available to you. We will increase visibility and control so that you can:
Have control of where your data is stored and who can access it.
Understand which resources your company is consuming at any given time.
Ensure that the correct resources have the appropriate access when required, wherever your information resides.
Automation Automating manual tasks results in saving time/money that may be used elsewhere. Security automation will simplify your operations and increases your security posture:
Automating security activities reduces human configuration errors.
Automating infrastructure / application security checks to continually enforce security and compliance controls and help ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability at all times.
