Stay secure and compliant without compromising agility
With security concerns such as data breaches, weak security controls and susceptibility to attacks impacting data security, enterprises need to move fast and stay secure. Protect your cloud computing resources and stay compliant without compromising agility with AWS cloud security.
What is cloud security?
Cloud security is the process of protecting cloud resources such as applications, data, and infrastructures over the Internet. Security in the cloud uses software-based security tools to protect the flow of information in and out of your cloud resources. Strict regulatory standards, security tools, confidentiality and DDoS migration work to reduce risk and protect your data in the cloud. Using the right cloud platform and practising a shared responsibility for security practices allows for cloud security to be a safer option for protecting your sensitive data than traditional IT security.
Benefits of cloud security
Cloud security has been adopted by enterprises across the globe, allowing businesses to unlock the unlimited capabilities of the cloud. Security in a cloud environment allows businesses to access the efficiencies of security services over the Internet while still remaining secure.
Cloud security provides many of the functionalities of traditional IT security, with the additional benefits of scalability, efficiency and lower costs. With security in the cloud, businesses are able to access a range of different security services more efficiently than with traditional IT security, allowing for security threats to be handled at speed. Cloud security is quickly scalable, highly efficient and reduces time to market compared to traditional IT security. With the use of software-based security tools to protect your data, applications and other digital assets in the cloud, the need for on-premises data centres, hardware and maintenance costs is eliminated. Like most cloud computing services, cloud security follows usage-based costs that can be scaled when needed.
