Cloud Security Primer
What is Cloud Security?Cloud computing security is service that provides many of the same functionalities as traditional IT security. This includes protecting critical information from theft, data leakage and deletion.
One of the benefits of cloud services is that you can operate at scale and still remain secure.
Data storage often includes certain compliance requirements especially when storing credit card numbers or health information. Many cloud providers offer independent third party audit reports to attest that their internal process exist and are effective in managing the security within their facilities where you store your data.
Benefits of Cloud Security
Centralized security centralizes protection.Cloud-based business networks consist of numerous devices, services and endpoints. Managing all of these entities centrally enhances traffic analysis and filtering, streamlines the monitoring of network events and results in fewer software and policy updates. Disaster recovery plans can also be implemented and actioned easily when they are managed in one place.
Reduced costsCloud security infrastructure typically has low or no capital costs. Cloud security delivers proactive security features that offer protection 24/7 with little or no human intervention.
Reduced AdministrationWhen you choose a reputable solution or a service provider, there is reduced administration overhead
More and more organizations are realizing the many business benefits of moving their systems to the cloud. Cloud computing allows organizations to operate at scale, reduce technology costs and use agile systems that give them the competitive edge. However, it is essential that organizations have complete confidence in their cloud computing security and that all data, systems and applications are protected from data theft, leakage, corruption and deletion.
All cloud models are susceptible to threats. IT departments are naturally cautious about moving mission-critical systems to the cloud and it is essential the right security provisions are in place, whether you are running a native cloud, hybrid or on-premise environment. Cloud security offers all the functionality of traditional IT security, and allows businesses to harness the many advantages of cloud computing while remaining secure and also ensure that data privacy and compliance requirements are met.
Top 3 cloud security considerations
Cloud Computing Does Not Lessen Existing Network Security RisksThe security risks that threaten a data center and network today change once applications move to the cloud, whether¬ in a complete migration or in a hybrid scenario in which some applications move to the cloud while others remain on premises. In fact, in several ways, the security risks faced when moving to the cloud become more significant simply because of the design of cloud networks.
The Cloud Relies on Shared Resources but security requires isolation of resourcesSecurity best practices dictated that mission-critical applications and data be separated into secure segments on the network. Often, this is referred to as Zero Trust: never trust, always verify.
On a physical network within the enterprise data center, Zero Trust is relatively straightforward to implement through the use of firewalls and VLANs (i.e., virtual LANs), managed by policies based on application and user identity.
In a cloud computing environment, direct communication between virtual machines within a server occurs constantly, in some cases across varied levels of trust. This makes segmentation a difficult task, especially given that cloud applications are based on the notion of shared resources. Mixed levels of trust, when combined with a lack of intra-host traffic visibility by virtualized port-based security offerings, will likely introduce a weakened security posture.
Security Configurations Are well defined however Cloud Computing Environments Are DynamicCloud computing teams operate in a highly dynamic environment, with workloads being added, removed and changed constantly in minutes.
By contrast, the security configuration for this workload may take hours, days or weeks. Security delays are not designed to create roadblocks. Rather, they are the result of a process that is designed to maintain a strong security posture. Policy changes need to be approved, the appropriate firewalls need to be identified, and the relevant policy updates determined. Unless this is understood and addressed as part of the cloud security configuration, the result is a discrepancy between security policy and cloud workload deployment. The result is a weakened security posture that can put important data and intellectual property in danger and might also cause violations of compliance and governance policies and regulations.
Key Requirements for Securing the Cloud
Isolate business applications using Zero Trust network principles.In order to fully maximize the use of computing resources, it is now a relatively common practice to mix application workload trust levels on the same compute resource. In such scenarios, isolation of applications using some technology such as containers is important.
Consistent security rules and policies are to be appliedin physical and virtualized form factors.
Centrally manage security deployments and streamline policy updates.The security solution must be capable of spanning physical and virtual environments through a consistent policy management and enforcement framework and should include features that automate security policy updates.
