When adopting cloud technology, security is one of the most critical issues.
Many Organizations still fear that their data is not secure in the cloud environment.
Companies want to apply the same level of security to their cloud systems as their internal resources. It is essential to understand and identify the challenges of outsourcing data protection in the cloud.
What is Cloud Security?
Cloud security is a set of control-based safeguards and technology protection designed to protect resources stored online from leakage, theft, or data loss.
Protection encompasses cloud infrastructure, applications, and data from threats. Security applications operate as software in the cloud using a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.
Topics that fall under the umbrella of security in the cloud include:
- Data center security
- Access control
- Threat prevention
- Threat detection
- Threat mitigation
- Legal compliance
- Cloud security policy
