Cloud security is a major concern for most enterprises. Unless threats and vulnerabilities are mitigated, a cloud undertaking can only put the business at risk.
Basic cloud architecture alone has its inherent vulnerabilities. For instance, shared (storage, compute, and networking) resources and hosted services make several cloud deployments susceptible to data leakage and unauthorized access. This can be a major issue from a privacy perspective. That’s why some laws and regulations have stringent requirements if sensitive information is stored in the cloud.
Like all infrastructures facing the Internet or involving any form of network connectivity, cloud infrastructures can be exposed to cyber threats like:
- Denial of Service Attacks (DoS)
- Man-in-the-Middle Attacks
- Advanced Persistent Threats (APT)
- Malware outbreaks
- Account hijackers
- Malicious insiders
Many cloud deployments are easily exploited due to various security lapses. Non-existent security policies, insecure APIs, poor identity and access management (IAM), and insufficient due diligence prior to migration can all result in serious vulnerabilities.
The solutions architects at ADAPTURE have decades of experience securing enterprise infrastructures and are up to date with the latest in virtualization and cloud technology advancements. Since the early days of cloud adoption, we’ve been helping customers architect secure cloud infrastructures.
