Managed Cloud Security

Transformation, control and grip on data and applications

How do you handle cybersecurity in your cloud transformation? Do you know exactly what to look for and are you in complete control? What about the security of data and applications in the cloud? In short; how do you get your cloud security in order?


Compliance, architecture and infrastructure

The cloud is the internet. And contrary to physical locations, it’s a lot harder to secure your cloud properly. Physical lines you can poke into a firewall and then you’re safe, but in the cloud, a small mistake is around every corner. A configuration error can lead to being directly connected to the internet, and then it’s a small feat for hackers to break in.

With cloud security, it’s important to consider as soon as possible, before you start setting up your security, what you’ll be doing in the cloud, what compliance regulations will apply, and how you make sure that your cloud security architecture and infrastructure are in line with your existing general infrastructure and strategy.

The easiest way to get this done is by simply applying the same strategy across the entire organization. The Zero Trust strategy is ideally suited for this.


Shaping security sustainably and independently

Zero Trust is a strategy and a great tool for shaping security sustainably and independently, regardless of where your data resides. This strategy connects ‘which data do I have and which are the most important (crown jewels)’ and ‘which policy (laws and regulations) do I want or need to apply to them’.

This way, creating policies and implementing them becomes much more manageable.

With Zero Trust security, you choose to effectively reduce the attack surface of your IT environment. Among other things, you divide up the network into (micro)segments or functional domains, and you apply security measures in conjunction with the sensitivity of the data within that segment.

This is how you ensure that a security incident or breach only impacts a specific segment, not all your IT resources.

Wide Area Networking (WAN) and security concepts

These days, cloud is here to stay. But the road to the cloud is different for everyone. Where on the road do you place your security, when do you start thinking about it, how do you deploy it and what does it mean for your business? Even if your cloud transformation is already underway, it’s still good to think about all this.

It’s important to set up all your security properly at the beginning of your cloud journey. This doesn’t mean you won’t run into anything further down the road and that mistakes won’t be made, but it does ensure that you are better prepared for what can happen.


Many options, many considerations

The reality is that the cloud looks different for every company. What your cloud looks like depends on what services and applications you’re using, and the best way to set up your cloud security can therefore greatly vary from one company to the other.

Are you using a SaaS cloud service like Office 365 or SalesForce, or perhaps you’re migrating from on premises to the cloud for all data and applications your business uses? Or do you make use of custom software running in the cloud?

As you can see, there are many options. These many options also lead to many considerations when it comes to your cloud security.


You’ll already be too late

Many companies wonder about the state of their cloud security only when they start running into problems. Whether it’s compliance or a security breach, in both cases it’s already too late to start thinking about your cloud security. Your ‘road’ to the cloud will be full of obstacles and you will not be able to adapt security properly.

So, when and where should you start? The most important questions to be asking in this cloud reality check are:

Is my information security policy also properly implemented in the cloud?

And what if things go wrong?

Whether it’s compliance or a security breach, in both cases it’s already too late to start thinking about your cloud security. 


Context and preventive measures

ON2IT uses MDR and MPC for their cloud security solutions, as we do for all our other cybersecurity solutions. MDR (Managed Detection & Response) and MPC (Managed Prevention & Compliance) solutions focus on providing context to events and on preventive measures.

MDR and MPC are also reflected in our SOC as a Service solution, which not only provides the ability to identify and analyze threats, but also stops them.

Our Zero Trust based Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) platform is integrated with Prisma Cloud, the leading cloud-native security platform for AWS, Azure and Google Cloud.

We provide protection for all hosts, containers and serverless deployments in any cloud environment, throughout the entire software lifecycle.
