Security on the cloud
Hardening of computing devices, multi-layered security rules, system event monitoring, patching, upgrades, system scanning, and separation of privileges are security techniques that apply to both brick and mortar data centers and cloud environments. However, there are unique considerations regarding cloud security. It’s important to have the experience and full understanding of the security consequences. Cloud-native security should be leveraged instead of traditional data center security processes. Additional differences between the cloud and brick and mortar data centers focus on three primary aspects of the cloud: automation, evolution, and impermanence. The cloud is often highly automated and lends itself to significant automation, and cloud services are frequently updated by the cloud provider which should be implemented in a short-lived manner. Therefore, eSimplicity puts in place an automated process and regularly evaluates our security posture.
