Cloud Security Challenges
As more and more users switch to the cloud, Cyber Security Challenges are bound to arise for cloud service providers. However, this is good news for the organizations that are moving to the cloud. Let’s discuss how.
Previously, companies use to store their sensitive data in-house. This was a capital intensive deployment as vast storage devices had to be procured. In addition, the physical and cyber security of these databases posed even greater challenges.
To regulate access to these highly sensitive databases, elaborate authentication protocols had to be designed. Each user had to be granted limited access to the data, keeping in view the nature of the assignment and organizational role.
This is easier said than done as it is a pain in the neck for network administrators. Cloud Computing has transformed the data security spectrum for even the largest companies on the globe. Firstly, the entire database is shifted onto the cloud.
Security of this database is the sole domain of the cloud service provider. In most cases, the basic level of security is incorporated within the upfront fees or charges. But as the sensitivity of the data increases, so do the stakes for its security.
In the present day, cloud service providers take care of all your data security needs. Whether its data protection or access related issues, cloud companies are happy to help organizations meet these challenges.
