Vulnerability in Cloud
Cloud computing is constantly bringing radical changes in the way an organization uses, stores, and shares data. It helps them to store humongous amount of data without any shared workplace or datacenter. But, as the burgeoning data is going to cloud, a whole new stratosphere of security threats and challenges has also become a part of the cloud picture. This raises the need for modern-day architectures and organizations must rethink how to mitigate risks in their cloud workloads.
The major challenges companies face includes:
• Control over security
• Continuous agile integration and deployment
• Layered infrastructure
Companies deem key security design vital in abating the constantly rising breaches. Today, many established cloud players in the market such as Microsoft Azure and AWS offers optimal security controls in their platform. Furthermore, owing to the proliferation of mobile apps and the booming digital footprint, the need to secure cloud infrastructure has increased more than ever. Many companies are using machine learning algorithms to bolster cloud security and pre-emptively counter unauthorized accesses. Also, many companies have introduced regulatory compliance for cloud deployment. Complying with the regulations prevents customers’ data leakage and adequate security provisions.
