When you’re planning or implementing a cloud migration for a large enterprise, security is one of your top priorities. When your data is being stored at a thirdparty data center, what can you do to protect it from cyber-attack?
As with on-premise security, of course, it takes layers of defense to secure a cloud environment. And you can’t always rely on a cloud service provider to have every layer you need.
At digit solutions, we work with market leaders to offer you a range of solutions to protect your infrastructure in the cloud.
For example, we can help you to:
Design with security in mind
Your first step is to make sure that your cloud architecture is designedwith security in mind.
Should your most sensitive files be in the cloud – or would you prefer a hybrid solution that allows you to keep only less sensitive data offpremise?
And how does this affect your strategy when it comes to cloud backups?
To answer questions like these, you are likely to need our IT Security Design service.
Detect and prevent external threats
If you have an existing cloud infrastructure, you need to consider how to detect and prevent threats. Solutions include:
Cloud firewalls to suit your environment, and to protect against malware.
Advanced threat protection to detect malware such as viruses and trojans.
Intrusion prevention systems (IPS) and intrusion detection systems (IDS) to spot and respond to attacks.
We can also help you install cloud connectors that help you connect easily to cloud-based cyber-security services.
Configure for information security
With security configuration management (SCM) services, you can monitor who is doing what and when to your cloud files, and track data as it moves.
This helps you both detect an attack by spotting unusual changes, or mitigate damage after an attack has taken place.
At Digit Solutions, we have in-house specialist expertise in SCM and can use it to help make your cloud infrastructure more secure.
