Proxios released a new white paper that outlines the best practices for securing your IT infrastructure when moving to the cloud.
While the cloud offers significant business advantages, if it is not secured properly it can result in substantial damage. That’s why Proxios is helping organizations understand the best ways for the cloud provider and cloud service customer to maintain the highest level of security.
A cloud service provider should have numerous security layers in a cloud infrastructure including: Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), virus and malware audits, full patching and audits, multiple firewalling layers, DMZs and more. Also, the datacenter itself should have multiple levels of physical security.
Each cloud customer should implement security precautions from each endpoint device. A structured security training program for each individual business can help address “social engineering” threats, which are elaborate tricks used to gain access to a company’s systems.
