Cloud Security Protocols — To Be Adopted For Safe Cloud Usage

Cloud Security Protocols

1. Fathom Your Cloud Service Provider undertakes the Shared Cloud Security Responsibility:

2. Determine the Quantity of Business Relying on Cloud and Its Security Risks:

Some firms also had a hard time while believing that cloud-based native malware can exist within their cloud environment in the current cloud security approach, but discovered their cloud data storage service inept at securing their data on the cloud. After running a CASB solution that uses APIs for granular control over cloud usage, many of their customers get surprised about how much sensitive data is shared publicly over the cloud and how they take steps for this control and governance. All-in-all, the primary requirement that rests with companies is superior and adept cloud security protocols, which can be rendered by an efficient CASB vendor, CloudCodes!

3. Consider DLP Measures and Must Teach Users about Keeping the Data Safe:

Still, the lack of visibility towards user data access leads to the sharing of data within sanctioned apps and unsanctioned apps, thus exposing that data to risks. There are no such rules to handle that data or implement any policies for making sure the information is not mishandled. Also, most firms do not teach their users/employees about keeping their company’s data secure and safe. Deploying a CASB solution with advanced Data Loss Prevention (DLP) capabilities can well cover such organizational requirements and do much more than this.

4. Determine the Scalability of Company’s Cloud Data Security Protocols and Enterprise Security Approach:

Also, one must consider how many cloud-based services can be covered by one single policy. While thinking of Cloud Access Security Broker solutions, one must think beyond the SaaS apps that are in use. Also, it is imperative to know the number of sanctioned SaaS applications that would be rolling out over the forthcoming few years. Also about adding controls for those unsanctioned apps, which are providing real value to the business.

Also, consideration must be given to secure IaaS & PaaS. As more and more apps, as well as the company’s infrastructure, are moving to the cloud, the companies that view CASB as their leading cloud security platform, would have a smoother transition to the cloud. We, at CloudCodes, take pride in being a great vendor providing best-in-class CASB solutions.
