First, let's discuss why cloud security is so critical to your business.

Once your data crosses the boundaries of your internal network, it becomes essential to protect it from hackers and cyber attacks. It is very important to pay extra attention to security measures, as the threat is often less visible.


Common Cloud Security challenges

  • Implementation of advanced tools for real-time monitoring and threat detection;
  • The switch from conventional IT security to cloud-enabled security;
  • The (missing) awareness that being compliant and being safe are not the same;
  • Creating detailed guidelines and implementation plans to ensure full compliance with security tools;
  • Develop training programs to equip DevOps teams with the necessary skills and insights for effective security within their area of responsibility;
  • Passing PenTests and audits for certifications;
  • Automated continuous demonstrable measuring and reporting on the current safety of the environment;
  • Lack of knowledge or specialists in the field of cloud security;
  • Connecting on-premises security to the public cloud.

Different ways of thinking

3 cloud security scenarios

cloud - Container Security
Container Security

Embracing cloud-native technologies, such as Docker and Kubernetes, is essential to creating a competitive advantage. Cloud native is the new standard. As acceptance of these new container technologies increases, so should concerns about the security of containerized environments. The main priority is ensuring that everything in the container environment works as intended.

cloud - Serverless Security
Serverless Security

Applying serverless computing, such as AWS Lambda and Azure Functions, is essential to fully leverage the cloud’s potential. However, securing this can be challenging as visibility becomes more difficult and new attack vectors are continually being introduced. The serverless operational model requires a paradigm shift in the way application security is dealt with. In our experience it is best to tackle serverless security risks as early in the design phase as possible to mitigate exploitation at later stages.

cloud - DevSecOps

DevOps security should also be integrated in the lifecycle of applications. Conventional security policies and routines can become a bottleneck in CI/CD pipelines. This in turn can result in total security neglect. Modern issues require modern solutions. With DevSecOps it is all about built-in security, security by design and the integration of two contradictory goals – speed and security – from start to finish. As cloud natives we operate in accordance with these principles on a daily basis.
