Cloud Security

Cloud Security is the practice of securing data, applications, and underlying infrastructure including policies, controls, configurations etc. While the cloud provides new opportunity to update services and restructure operations, the largest barrier to cloud adoption remains security and compliance risk. These worries, along with the ambiguity of hybrid as well as multi-cloud environments and a lack of skills, can make it hard to move to the cloud first.

All of this puts security leaders in capable of designing a secure cloud-first journey to help businesses perform better. To find the right balance, businesses need to know how they can use interconnected cloud technologies to their advantage while also using the best cloud security procedures.

What is Cloud Security
+ -

Cloud security is the process of making sure that data, applications, and the infrastructure underneath them are safe. This includes things like policies, controls, configurations, and so on.The number of businesses moving their systems to the cloud is growing quickly. Over 96% of businesses are either entirely on the cloud or use it in some way. So, it is very important for businesses to come up with a plan for safeguarding their cloud presence.

Importance of A Cloud Security Strategy
+ -

  • Your critical information and brand depends upon the security of the cloud

  • Hackers are now going after cloud assets more than ever before. This is clear from the growing number of security incidents and breaches related to cloud assets.

  • Compliance rules and standards need to be met and maintained.

  • End clients are required to do much more than assumed and it is important to understand the shared responsibility between you and the cloud security partner

  • Security is often forgotten in the cloud due to its ease & quick deployment especially while supporting remote worker in today’s times

Cloud Security: The Shared Responsibility Model

By embracing the shared responsibility paradigm, you may increase your cloud infrastructure's security. However, understanding this model is not the sole path towards cloud security. You must take necessary security measures, and Accorian can help you with that. In each type of public cloud service, both the cloud provider and the cloud customer are responsible for security, but to different degrees. Simply stated, the cloud provider must ensure the security OF the cloud and the customer must ensure safety IN the cloud.


In an IaaS structure, the cloud provider is in charge of all the physical resources and shares security responsibility for the host infrastructure and network with the customer. The customer is in charge of everything else. At this level, the customer has more freedom, but they also have to take on most of the responsibility. IaaS is based on a set of principles that are very similar to the shared responsibility model for the providers.


In a PaaS framework, the provider is responsible for the physical infrastructure but also for network security, and the customer is also responsible for the application and access control. Platform-as-a-Service is often made up of services, application software, as well as virtual machines and instances.


Lastly, in a SaaS structure, the provider is in charge of all application controls, while the customer is in charge of access control and client/endpoint protection. Most of the time, SaaS companies offer business or consumer apps across the internet. These apps may operate in the cloud, but the word "SaaS" does not pertain to cloud providers.

What Can Accorian Do For You?

Today's cloud services are different from one service provider to the next, and each one has its own set of utilities and tools. They have their own controls, configurations, and more. Almost every week, new features, suites, tools, and controls are added. So, it can be hard for an end user to keep up and keep a cloud environment that is stable and safe.
