Debunking 5 Cloud Security Infrastructure Myths

Debunking 5 Cloud Security Infrastructure Myths

Cloud services have been available for a very long time now, but it was only until recently that their actual need was felt by the big corporations. With most of the companies allowing work from home, for their employees, cloud security has now scooped in to facilitate operational continuity.

 

In times like such, remote access with scalability and good availability of data, have been in high demand. Fortunately, these have been the advantages of cloud computing. Moving towards the cloud will surely help in increasing productivity, as it makes everything available at a click. Since clouds will be one of the most commonly used services; it only makes sense to introduce cloud security. Cloud security today is extremely essential to enable remote work. It will allow the business to keep a tab on what is being accessed, by whom, and for how much time. 

 

Sparks Services brings to you the top 5 myths related to cloud security:

Myth 1: 

Only compliance department works with security certifications

The compliance team takes care of all the required government certificates for the functioning of the company. Similarly, it is equally important to ensure that the vendors that you are in business with are also ensuring their compliance. It is important because, these vendors will be handling your data, and hence, all levels of compliance, whether governmental or industrial must be taken care of.

 

Myth 2: 

A secure cloud space

No doubt the cloud providers maintain a high-security protocol that can ensure the safety of your data. However, maintaining protocols can be different from the actual practical use of the same. Hence, it is advisable to consider the audit of a third party.

 

Myth 3: 

More the data centers, better the performance

Even though it is advisable to have enough data centers to ensure a good geographical presence, having more than an adequate number of data centers alone will never ensure improved performance. Instead, having facilities of cloud peering and peering exchanges can bring a significant level of transformation in the performance. This will facilitate a smooth flow of data without any kind of latency.

 

Myth 4: 

Cloud service provider’s level of security doesn’t affect the cybersecurity insurance premium

As we all know, the insurance premium is set according to the level of risk that one is exposed to. Hence, if the provider can display certifications and proofs of all the measures taken to protect, then the premium rates will be significantly lower.  

 

Myth 5:

Data’s protection is most important for external forces  

A lot of governmental and industrial compliances and regulations are followed to ensure that no sensitive information of the customer is ever jeopardized. Having said that, compliance becomes an important part of your business, but it isn’t only important from the point of customers.  It is even in your best interest since the epicenter of your reputation lies in your trade secrets. Your goodwill is a result of your intellectual property and strategic plans.
