With rapid adoption of cloud services across the globe, the threat surface of the cloud industry is widening as a whole. Another factor that raises the stakes in cloud deployments is the “shared responsibility mode”.
The shared responsibility model entrusts the endpoint level of security to the end users of cloud services, in addition to the Cloud Service Provider (CSP). The ongoing global pandemic has also changed the cyber security landscape to a great extent.
Spike in Cyber Attacks
Due to the ongoing pandemic, thousands of enterprises have speedily migrated to remote work or work from home (WFH). Cloud services, such as dinHVD offered by dinCloud are playing a leading role in remote productivity initiatives.
However, this speedy change in the technology stacks has also attracted the largest number of cyber attacks in recorded history. Some cyber security companies have clocked a nearly four times increase in cyber attacks since the start of Covid-19 pandemic.
The Cloud and Cyber Security
In the case of cloud deployments, vital enterprise data is stored in the data centers of Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud. A single cloud provider may have organizational data of countless enterprises within its data centers.
This puts cloud infrastructures at an increasing and ever present risk of cyber attacks. To counter this situation, both cloud providers like dinCloud and large enterprises are investing heavily in cloud security solutions.
Forecast for the Cloud Security Market
According to a recent study on cloud security conducted by a famous research firm, the size of the global cloud security market is expected to grow from the current level of $34.5 BN in 2020 to $68.5 BN by the year 2025.
This translates into a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.7%, which speaks volumes about the increasing focus on cyber security solutions. We are witnessing the emergence of innovative security solutions as well as cyber security startups.
Changing Trends around Cyber Security
Previously, cyber security was considered more of a sub-domain of cloud services. Due to the increasing threat landscape, cloud security has now evolved into a stand alone and highly specialized domain in itself.
The other trend that’s changing quickly in cloud security is that you now have to adopt an all encompassing and ground up approach to cyber security. Every component of the cloud service delivery is now at potential risks of evasive threats.
Increasing Regulatory Compliance
The other rapidly evolving domain is that of regulatory compliance. Due to the constant influx of disturbing news about data, security and privacy breaches, we are entering an era of unprecedented regulatory compliance.
Laws and regulations around data privacy are getting much more localized and cloud providers like dinCloud have to minutely gauge the compliance standards enforced in various jurisdictions where cloud services are being offered.
To meet these stringent and unrelenting compliance standards, you need a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) like dinCloud that has a robust security posture augmented with the best international standards for data security and privacy.
dinCloud’s Security Compliances
Being a leading cloud provider, dinCloud’s global data centers comply with some of the best international standards of cloud security that include HIPAA, ISO 27001, NIST 800-53/FI, PCI DSS, SOC Type I and II, SS 507, SS 567 and TVRA.
Best in Class Endpoint Security with Sophos
At dinCloud, the robust cyber security posture does not stop at the cloud infrastructure. This security posture trickles down right to the level of end point devices, which are a relatively vulnerable and critical component of the cloud delivery model.
To secure endpoint devices, dinCloud has integrated on of the world’s best cyber security solutions which is Sophos Intercept X for Endpoints and Servers. The addition of Sophos to an already robust cloud security posture speaks of dinCloud’s commitment to security.
Amidst these times of a very hostile cloud security environment, you need a cloud provider like dinCloud that has the requisite infrastructure, expertise and tools to detect as well as neutralize the ever increasing cyber threats.
