Cloud security is important because cloud security ensures your organization’s data and applications are readily available to authorized users.

Maintaining a strong cloud security posture helps organizations achieve the now widely recognized benefits of cloud computing.

Cloud security comes with its own advantages as well, helping you achieve lower upfront costs, reduced ongoing operational and administrative costs, easier scaling, increased reliability and availability, and improved DDoS protection.

The substantial rise in popularity of Cloud computing is in large part due to how the cloud transforms business and saves money among midsize and small companies. Cloud computing enables many businesses to access to application software over high-speed internet connection without the need for investing in computer software and hardware. 

Cybersecurity professionals believe there are some solid ways to mitigate cloud security risks. One of those ways is working toward a DevSecOps process.

DevOps and DevSecOps have repeatedly been demonstrated to improve code quality and reduce exploits and vulnerabilities, and increase the speed of application development and feature deployment.

Integrating development, QA, and security processes within the business unit or application team instead of relying on a stand-alone security verification team is crucial to operating at the speed today’s business environment demands.

Another security objective should be to unify security with centralized management across all services and providers. Of course, no one product or vendor can deliver everything, but multiple management tools make it too easy for something to slip through.

A unified management system with an open integration fabric reduces complexity by bringing the parts together and streamlining workflows.

Experts in this field also recommend automated application deployment and management tools. The shortage of security skills, combined with the increasing volume and pace of security threats, means that even the most experienced security professional cannot keep up.
