Make Cloud Security work for YOU!

The ‘WHY’ and ‘WHAT’ of cloud computing security

In this day and age having a storehouse like ‘CLOUD COMPUTING‘ that can equip your relevant data is of dire importance, as one needs storage that is convenient, accessible and reliable all at the once. As much as it is necessary one also needs assurance and protection for this warehouse of data and this where Cloud Computing Security comes into play!

The IDC predicts that the sum of the world’s data will grow from 33 zettabytes this year to a 175ZB by 2025, for an annual growth rate of 61 percent. THAT’S HUGE!

Cloud computing security fulfills these demands and proves to be a dependable source. That is because Cloud computing provides hardware and software storage to many consumers at a time.

Cloud security is the next-gen paradigm and its reachability is increasing on the clock.

Where cloud computing concerns with the security of your data

Many cloud service suppliers provide storage as a form of service.The users can store their data on a large data center.

Cloud service providers say that the data stored in the cloud is utmost safe. If there is a threat or security concern, the probable cause can be human error or security breach.

There are many ways by which we can negate threatening attacks. This includes data encryption and controlling who sees what and who can access what and when.

Where cloud computing concerns with the integrity of your data

Data integrity implies that data should be stored on cloud servers, and any violations (for ex: data is lost, altered, or compromised) are to be detected.

Moreover, there are large number of data sources and authorization that helps in ensuring only wanted entities interact with data.

This infact means stricter ways of access, like the two-factor authorization and logging to see who accessed what.

The 4 kinds of attacks and how to dodge them!!
1)Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS)

This occurs when many systems flood the resources of a targeted system, usually one or more web servers. Such an attack is often the result of many compromised systems flooding the system of choice with traffic.

It’s like a traffic jam clogging up with the highway, preventing regular traffic from arriving at its desired destination. In addition, A DDoS attack requires an attacker to gain control of a network of online machines to carry out an attack.

DDoS attacks can’t be prevented but steps can be taken to make it harder for an attacker to render a network unresponsive. This can be achieved by using DDoS protection.

2)SSL attack

SSL Certificates which is a part of cloud security when installed on a web server activates the padlock and allows for secure connections from a web server to a web browser.

It allows an attacker who can hijack an HTTPS connection to add their requests to the conversation the client has.

An SSL certificate protects the private information you collect from your customers such as credit card details, passwords and as well as logins.

It is an easy and cost-effective way to legitimize your website. It protects your site against phishing and also boosts your search engine ranking.

3)Threat blocking and privacy

Initially, we took an overview of Cyclo’s complete business structure. We decided on a strategy that could help them gain a strong online presence with the power of the cloud, digital, and various technologies. So after building their website and bringing the cloud technologies into their daily office tasks, Cyclo transmissions could see a noticeable difference in their productivity and ease of work. Many of their tasks could now be completed with a single email. Hence we are continuously keeping Cyclo’s online presence up to date as per their recent updates and making sure we achieve the best when it comes to data safety and security.

4)Web Application Firewall (WAF)

WAF is an application firewall for HTTP applications as it applies a set of rules to an HTTP conversation.

As a gateway for all incoming traffic to your web application, a Web Application Firewall (WAF) is in a perfect position to filter out malicious visitors and requests.

By adding a WAF to your environment, you can defend against SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), remote file inclusion (RFI) and more, while boosting detection accuracy via flexible rule sets with anomaly scoring.
