The cloud environment is vulnerable, but not if you properly plan the implementation of your solutions.

The Smart Approach to Building Your Cloud Environment

When the cloud environment first emerged as an option for businesses pursuing innovation solutions, the discussion around potential cost savings and followed immediately by one about security concerns. Was it possible to keep data and systems safe as they interacted with a public cloud solution?

 For many companies, the security concerns associated with adopting a cloud environment are a given, something that needs to be addressed in order to gain the flexibility, agility, and cost savings provided by cloud investments. But that doesn’t mean that organizations shouldn’t do what they can to mitigate the risk, and many of those risks are introduced during implementation.

Common Mistakes

Failing to update security configurations is a huge problem that leaves users vulnerable, but there is also the problem of old technology that is slated for retirement and is no longer updated. Cyber criminals capitalize on these situations, as they find it easy prey because there are no longer security controls being used with these solutions, including monitoring, which means they can creep in unnoticed.

Another common issue that can lead to a compromised cloud environment is a lack of outbound restrictions or workload protections. In fact, there is an entire specialty related to cloud workload protection platforms that are built specifically for keeping your cloud environment safe.

Proactive Action

Because so many mistakes are made during the implementation process, it’s best to focus on advance planning. Security steps taken during implementation will help you avoid configuration errors. Human error continues to top the list of reasons why hackers find success, which is why all your administrative activities pose a significant risk. To decrease the risk of avoidable errors, make the account creation process standard and as easy as possible.

For example, if your developers and others on the security team are tasked with building their own security profiles, they can make mistakes, which is why you should use an account factory to set up everything in a predictable manner.

If you prioritize visibility, it’s possible to reduce the incidence of human error that may cause complications later. You can choose to enable runtime protection to gain more visibility as well as utilize endpoint protection to safeguard your data.

Sports Production Services
Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!
