The recent spate of worldwide cyber-attacks has done little to deter businesses from moving forward with their digital transformation plans.  In fact, new research shows cloud adoption in the enterprise isn’t slowing despite cyber-security and data protection concerns.

While businesses continue to move forward with their plans cloud security has been thrust into the spotlight once again. In this two-part post, we’ll look at six steps to better cloud security.

Be aware of the security level you need

Every business should be aware of its needs when it comes to security. Ensure that the service provider you decide to use has the correct features that can meet up to your specific security requirements. The nature of your business and the type of information you need protected will determine the level of security you require.

Strategix cloud hosting solutions provides several attractive benefits for your company by enabling you to consume computer resources as a utility – just like electricity – rather than having to build and maintain IT infrastructures on-premise.  Extending into the cloud should expand your options without adding complexity allowing you to meet changing business needs with greater flexibility.

Check the physical personnel and security of your service provider

When it comes to selecting a service provider, do your research. Examine their physical types of security measures as well as their personnel management practices. Find out who will be able to view your information and what protocols they have in place regarding natural disasters, disaster recovery and co-location.

Deploy intelligent security that responds to change

As threats evolve you need your security needs to be intelligent enough to respond to these changes. Consider a behavioural-based solution, capable of identifying new or anomalous activity so you can stay on top of zero-day attacks and new behaviours that threaten your security.
