While the analysis around cloud computing and the security implications are understandable, today’s reality is that—when implemented correctly—cloud computing security is just as reliable as traditional on-premise IT. To fully understand cloud computing security, firstly we need to ask, what does cloud mean? Cloud computing is the delivery of on-demand computing services, from applications to storage and processing power, typically over the internet and on a pay-as-you-go basis.
As organisations rapidly adopt cloud networks, due to flexibility, scalability, cost effectiveness and more, security needs to be at the front and centre. Just how vital is security when it comes to cloud adoption? Public cloud service providers share their underlying hardware infrastructure between numerous customers, as the public cloud is a multi-tenant environment. This is enough to tell you that security security roles are needed to help enterprises to keep the data stored in the cloud secured in the long run.
No enterprise can leverage the benefits of cloud computing without ensuring the security of its software applications and data. They need robust security solutions that meet the frequency and speed of cloud deployment. Also, they must leverage the latest security tools and implement advanced security protocols to eliminate the disastrous impact of targeted security attacks.
Microsoft Azure is one of the world’s hardest hitting cloud platforms. At its core, Azure is a public cloud computing platform—with solutions including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) that can be used for services such as analytics, virtual computing, storage, networking, and much more.
The top benefits of Azure incorporate the fact that Microsoft intended to build an intuitive cloud-based platforms with on-demand services and support frameworks that appeal to businesses of all sizes.
