It’s not surprising that more and more organizations are turning to the cloud for storing their data.
Cloud security delivers numerous levels of control in a network infrastructure to afford protection and continuity. It’s a necessary component in creating an atmosphere that works for businesses all over the world. The advantages of cloud computing may be attained affordably by associating with advanced private cloud computing providers in a manner that does not endanger your business’s security.
On the other hand, even the cloud has security risks. The statistics say that 60% of cloud breaches involve vulnerabilities for which a patch is available but not applied. Major threats to cloud security include data breaches, data loss, account hijacking, service traffic hijacking, insecure application program interfaces (APIs), poor choice of cloud storage providers, and shared technology that can compromise cloud security.
Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are another threat to cloud security. These attacks shut down a service by overwhelming it with data so that users cannot access their accounts, such as bank accounts or email accounts.
This is why cloud security experts warn of the importance of having a team constantly monitoring for potential threats, and making sure that your systems are always up-to-date. Without cloud security, organizations risk all of the data they use, and ultimately the integrity of their business.
One important method for bolstering cloud security is by deploying a multi-factor authentication (MFA). It’s not news that the traditional username and password combination is often insufficient to protect user accounts from hackers, and stolen credentials is one of the main ways hackers get access to your online business data.
Once a hacker has your user credentials, they can log in to all those cloud-based applications and services that you use every day to run your business. By using an MFA (also known as two-factor authentication) approach, organizations ensure that only authorized personnel log in to your cloud apps and access sensitive data.
