Cloud Cryptography: Using Encryption to Protect Data

Article | July 6, 2022

Even privacy specialists agree that encryption is a fundamental technology and the cornerstone of security, but cloud encryption can be daunting. In addition, small and medium-sized enterprises can become confused by the sheer quantity of encryption techniques. Cloud cryptography encrypts cloud-based data. It allows users to securely use shared cloud services while cloud provider data is encrypted. Cloud cryptography safeguards sensitive data without slowing exchange. Cloud encryption makes it possible to secure sensitive data outside your organization's corporate IT infrastructure when that data is no longer under your control. Companies utilize a variety of cryptographic key types for cloud security. Three algorithms are used for cloud data encryption: Symmetric Algorithm One key encrypts and decrypts data. It requires little computing resources and excels at encryption. Two-way keys ensure verification and approval in symmetrical algorithms. Encrypted information in the cloud can't be deciphered unless the client possesses the key. Asymmetric Algorithm Encryption and decoding need distinct keys. Every recipient needs a decoder—the recipient's private key. The encryption key belongs to someone. The most secure approach requires both keys to access explicit data. Hashing It's key to blockchain security. In a blockchain, data is stored in blocks and linked by cryptographic protocols. A code or hash is assigned to each information block added to the chain. Hashing helps arrange and recover data. Businesses need to adopt a data-centric approach in this complex and evolving world of virtualization, cloud services, and mobility to protect their sensitive information from contemporary threats. Companies should deploy data security solutions that secure sensitive data consistently, including cloud data encryption and key management. Comprehensive cloud security and encryption platform should include robust access controls and key management to help enterprises use encryption successfully and cost-efficiently.

Is It Time For Your Organization To Adopt Cloud Computing?

Article | August 4, 2022

The potential of cloud computing is becoming increasingly apparent to various businesses, and it is also growing. AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google GCP are just a few of the numerous cloud service providers that are accessible globally. In addition, you can choose from a variety of migration strategies to go from local servers to cloud servers. Many businesses are considering shifting to the cloud. What are the indications that you are prepared, and why should you relocate? There's a chance your company is already utilizing an on-premise solution. Since it's been in use for a while, organizations are accustomed to it. But the need for greater flexibility has grown exponentially now that the shift to digital has accelerated in recent years. Threats to On-premise There are various drawbacks to on-premise software. Updates aren't usually frequent, and they’re not always supported. This implies that firms won't always have access to the most recent features and abilities. A custom build is much more time-consuming if you require a feature right away than getting it added to quarterly updates. There's a chance that the program an organization is using will someday be completely phased out. Then the organization is stuck using a solution that won't receive any more updates. In addition, with the hardware getting older, current operating systems might be unable to execute older programs. In the meantime, rivals would have switched to cutting-edge, affordable cloud-based technologies, which allow them to run their businesses and provide a much smoother client experience. Why Choose the Cloud? Moving to the cloud applies to every aspect of your business. Real-time data is provided, allowing for far more precise decision-making. Automating routine manual chores streamlines operations and frees up team members' time for activities they enjoy. It is also perfect for emerging forms of working, like remote and hybrid work, because it can be accessed from anywhere, on any device, at any time.

Managing Multi-Cloud Complexities for a Seamless Experience

Article | July 19, 2022

Introduction The early 2000s were milestone moments for the cloud. Amazon Web Services (AWS) entered the market in 2006, while Google revealed its first cloud service in 2007. Fast forward to 2020, when the pandemic boosted digital transformation efforts by around seven years (according to McKinsey), and the cloud has become a commercial necessity today. It not only facilitated the swift transition to remote work, but it also remains critical in maintaining company sustainability and creativity. Many can argue that the large-scale transition to the cloud in the 2010s was necessary to enable the digital-first experiences that remote workers and decentralized businesses need today. Multi-cloud and hybrid cloud setups are now the norm. According to Gartner, most businesses today use a multi-cloud approach to reduce vendor lock-in or to take advantage of more flexible, best-of-breed solutions. However, managing multi-cloud systems increases cloud complexity, and IT concerns, frequently slowing rather than accelerating innovation. According to 2022 research done by IntelligentCIO, the average multi-cloud system includes five platforms, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and IBM Red Hat, among others. Managing Multi-Cloud Complexities Like a Pro Your multi-cloud strategy should satisfy your company's requirements while also laying the groundwork for managing various cloud deployments. Creating a proactive plan for managing multi-cloud setups is one of the finest features that can distinguish your company. The five strategies for handling multi-cloud complexity are outlined below. Managing Data with AI and ML AI and machine learning can help manage enormous quantities of data in multi-cloud environments. AI simulates human decision-making and performs tasks as well as humans or even better at times. Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that learns from data, recognizes patterns, and makes decisions with minimum human interaction. AI and ML to help discover the most important data, reducing big data and multi-cloud complexity. AI and machine learning enable more simplicity and better data control. Integrated Management Structure Keeping up with the growing number of cloud services from several providers requires a unified management structure. Multiple cloud management requires IT time, resources, and technology to juggle and correlate infrastructure alternatives. Routinely monitor your cloud resources and service settings. It's important to manage apps, clouds, and people globally. Ensure you have the technology and infrastructure to handle several clouds. Developing Security Strategy Operating multiple clouds requires a security strategy and seamless integration of security capabilities. There's no single right answer since vendors have varied policies and cybersecurity methods. Storing data on many cloud deployments prevents data loss. Handling backups and safety copies of your data are crucial. Regularly examine your multi-cloud network's security. The cyber threat environment will vary as infrastructure and software do. Multi-cloud strategies must safeguard data and applications. Skillset Management Multi-cloud complexity requires skilled operators. Do you have the appropriate IT personnel to handle multi-cloud? If not, can you use managed or cloud services? These individuals or people are in charge of teaching the organization about how each cloud deployment helps the company accomplish its goals. This specialist ensures all cloud entities work properly by utilizing cloud technologies. Closing Lines Traditional cloud monitoring solutions are incapable of dealing with dynamic multi-cloud setups, but automated intelligence is the best at getting to the heart of cloud performance and security concerns. To begin with, businesses require end-to-end observability in order to see the overall picture. Add automation and causal AI to this capacity, and teams can obtain the accurate answers they require to better optimize their environments, freeing them up to concentrate on increasing innovation and generating better business results.

Evaluating the Importance of Cloud Native Security

Article | June 29, 2022

As time goes on, an increasing number of businesses worldwide are taking their approach to digital transformation a step farther than their competitors, who are yet to explore the digital front as effectively. As a result, from corporate regulations and financial limits to compliance penalties and new attack vectors, security teams face increasing difficulties when businesses move and scale their apps and services across multiple clouds. The creation of cloud-native applications has also increased as more businesses ramp up their digital transformation initiatives. Despite not having a clearly defined boundary to secure, contemporary distributed networks based in the cloud require network security. In addition, more sophisticated observability and security capabilities are also necessary due to the rising development and deployment of cloud-native apps. Organizations must understand what security entails for each new layer of the application stack in order to better secure cloud-native applications. They must also understand that the entire development pipeline requires a security management toolkit. In a perfect world, all cloud-native applications would secure every one of their endpoints and restrict access to only services or users with valid credentials. Every request for resources from an application should specify who is making it, their access role, and any privileges they may have. The difficulty of keeping track of these assets, as well as the constantly changing nature of cloud resources, adds to the complexity. As they scale up, cloud-native solutions like serverless present new difficulties. In particular, serverless apps frequently have hundreds of functions, making it challenging to manage all this data and the services that utilize it as the program grows. Due to this, resources must be immediately recognized as soon as they are produced and tracked through all modifications until they are no longer available. Despite the complexity of cloud-native applications, the fundamentals of cybersecurity remain the same. Beyond the necessity of end-user training, it appears that the five pillars of zero trust are strikingly similar to the essentials of cybersecurity: Network Application workload Identities Data Devices (physical security) Although using the cloud benefits businesses, security flaws, mistakes, and incorrect configurations are common. Moreover, different approaches leave security weaknesses. Lack of insight and end-to-end context about risk further hinders your capacity to safeguard the cloud. Additionally, as cloud expansion and the rate of agile software deployment rise, the task is getting steadily more complicated. And nobody wants to give up growth or speed in the name of security.
