What is Cloud Security?

Robust cloud security is imperative for businesses making the transition to the cloud. Security threats constantly evolve and become more sophisticated, and cloud computing is no less at risk than an on-premises environment. For this reason, it is essential to work with a cloud provider that offers best security that has been customized for your infrastructure.

Cloud security (cloud computing) is a collection of rules, controls, procedures, and technologies that work together to safeguard cloud-based systems, data, and infrastructure. These security measures are set up to protect cloud data, facilitate regulatory compliance, preserve consumer privacy, and set up authentication procedures for users and devices.

“Many consumers are concerned about the security of their data in the cloud; hence, cloud security is crucial,” according to Infosecurity Outlook. Some believe that their data is safer and more secure on their local servers, where they have more control. On the other hand, some enterprises consider data on the cloud more safer because cloud service providers employ superior security measures and have security experts on staff.”

The Key Takeaways of Cloud Security are:

  • Cloud security is a broad term that refers to securing digital assets and data held online through cloud service providers.
  • Cloud computing is the supply of various services, such as data storage, servers, databases, networking, and software, over the Internet.

Threats can be found in any cloud model. IT organizations are understandably discreet of shifting mission-critical systems to the cloud, and whether you’re running a native cloud, hybrid cloud, or on-premises environment, the necessary security measures must be in place. Cloud security incorporates all the features of traditional IT security, allowing businesses to take advantage of the many benefits of cloud computing while keeping safe and meeting data privacy and compliance standards.

More companies are discovering the numerous commercial advantages of transferring their systems to the cloud. Cloud computing enables businesses to operate at scale, cut technological expenses, and implement agile systems, giving them a competitive edge. Organizations must, however, have complete confidence in their cloud computing security, and all data, systems, and applications must be protected from data theft, leakage, corruption, and deletion.

As we migrate our devices, data centers, business operations, and more to the cloud, data security becomes increasingly crucial. Comprehensive security policies, an organizational culture of security, and cloud security solutions are all used to ensure high-quality cloud data protection.

There are multiple vendors who provide services that protect cloud apps and data, prevent compromised accounts, and allow you to create security policies on a per-device basis with this cloud security solution. If you want to get the most out of the cloud and keep your company safe from unauthorized access, data breaches, and other dangers, you need to choose the correct cloud security solution for your company.

Kubernetes Protection Extended in AWS by Redstor

Redstor a Data management, and SaaS protection company has introduced a new service aimed at changing the way how managed and cloud service providers (MSPs and CSPs) handle Kubernetes installations on AWS. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes (Amazon EKS), a managed container service for handling applications in the cloud or on-premises, has been introduced to the firm’s offering, allowing partners to scale client backups and eliminate the need for multiple, ununified solutions.

Backups have traditionally not been built for modern, container-based applications, necessitating service providers to use separate Kubernetes solutions to back up not only apps but also configurations, according to Redstor. The company hopes to integrate such processes with its new extension, removing the need for disparate solutions to be bolted together.

According to Redstor, services providers will benefit from the ability to quickly restore a Kubernetes environment by injecting data back into an existing cluster for fast resolution of ransomware, accidental or malicious deletion, or misconfiguration while managing multiple accounts with a single solution designed specifically for cloud partners.

Redstor’s backup empowers users with easy scalability and ongoing maintenance, unlike other extremely sophisticated services that need error-prone scripting. There’s no necessity to move between interfaces. All the features give MSPs a better chance to achieve large margins quickly at scale, stated Redstor’s chief product officer, James Griffin.

11:11 Systems completely acquires Iland

A company that manages infrastructure solutions, 11:11 Systems, has acquired a cloud service provider in Texas, Ireland.

The finalization of the procurement was announced on Thursday. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Headquartered in Houston with regional offices in London and Sydney, Ireland delivers cloud services including Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), and Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) from its cloudy regions throughout North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.

11:11 Systems said it aims to expand the award-winning Irish Secure Cloud Console, which integrates in-depth security with detailed layers, predictable analytics, and compliance to bring about easy visibility and management of Irish cloud services.

The agreement follows the recent acquisition of 11:11 Systems by Green Cloud Defense, the only channel provider, for cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

“By increasing Iland’s 25% YOY momentum at 11:11 Systems’ expanding the national network of MSPs, VARs and IT coordinators, a mechanism has been developed to boost growth,” the 11:11 Systems statement said…

Brett Diamond, CEO of 11:11 Systems, said his company’s recent acquisition was inspired by making internet security more accessible to its customers.

“CIOs and IT leaders are being pushed to address increasing numbers of security threats, application vulnerabilities, and network weaknesses that can leave organizations exposed to data breaches; at the same time, they are tasked with laying the right foundation within their infrastructure to embrace hybrid cloud, navigate sophisticated application requirements, artificial intelligence and more while data and devices continue to multiply exponentially,” said Diamond.
