Every business has its own unique cloud architecture, and the hidden risks or potential liabilities aren’t exclusive to it.
Safety on the cloud relies on meeting a benchmark of industry best practices and incorporating tools and policies to support them. Cloud security assessments help companies identify vulnerabilities in their digital framework and how they’re managed before an attack can exploit them.
Integrity360 cloud security specialists work with enterprises to:
- Map the entire architecture from endpoint to database
- Discover cloud-based applications in use by the workforce without IT approval
- Review configurations to ensure insider or external threats can’t infiltrate or alter virtual infrastructure
- Assess compliance within regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS)
- Evaluate resilience in accordance with static and dynamic workload requirements
- Implement solutions that support a dependable uptime and promote a better cyber security posture.
The resulting gap analysis report fuels an analysis-backed decision-making process to build improvements across the digital environment with a cost-effective and secure approach.
Benefits of a cloud security assessment
The cloud isn’t a ‘set it and forget it’ type of asset. Businesses need to continuously evaluate its safety and deploy a risk management policy that aligns a cyber security strategy with emerging trends.
Cloud security assessments leverage expert evaluations to discover vulnerabilities in a cloud architecture that could potentially be exploited and lead to a data breach.
By following a targeted roadmap, companies model a high- and low-level design to fit their unique needs based on the criticality and severity of their risks and recommendations from industry best practices.
Benefits of a cloud security assessment include:
- Assurance that corporate IT and cloud security policies are being enforced across all endpoints.
- Greater visibility into services, workloads and user interactions on the cloud.
- More secure internal and software-defined network infrastructure that’s optimised for resiliency.
- Improved data protection and privacy using the latest technology to comply with regulations like GDPR and PCI DSS.
- Clarified Identity and Access Management (IAM) protocols and guidelines.
Following the cloud security assessment, businesses are positioned to apply advanced services like penetration testing to further refine their cyber security posture.
