Organizations of all sizes are increasingly reliant on cloud computing. Unfortunately, this increased usage makes cloud computing platforms a target for cyberattacks. World Economic Forum brought this information to us in their article, “Why the cloud is the new rainmaker for cybersecurity.”
Cybersecurity in cloud computing environments is a multi-faceted endeavor, involving best practices in user access and privileges, hardware and software security, virtualization, firewalls and other processes used to protect data and infrastructure.
Cloud security is a subset of cybersecurity, devoted to securing cloud computing systems. Cloud security encompasses the policies, hardware and software, best practices, techniques, procedures and processes used to maintain the integrity and security of cloud data, infrastructure, applications and systems.
An important part of cloud security is testing for potential vulnerabilities and trying to find security weaknesses. By seeking out possible exploits and fixing these weaknesses, it hardens the security. Misconfigured cloud computing environments are one frequent cause of exploits.
Data security, and being sure to have all the necessary tools and resources to protect it and utilize it, has never been more important. Data Harmony is a fully customizable suite of software products designed to maximize precise, efficient information management and retrieval. Our suite includes tools for taxonomy and thesaurus construction, machine aided indexing, database management, information retrieval and explainable artificial intelligence.
