- When all of your applications were housed in a single data centre and all users were connected to the network, traditional network security was effective. But as users become more mobile and the majority of apps migrate to the cloud, there is more traffic going through the data centre, which necessitates complex security and access control configurations. Since the business network is now online, setting security and access restrictions on the Cloud is the only option to guarantee users complete protection, no matter where they are.
8. Cloud Security
Cloud security, a set of practices and tools intended to counter both internal and external risks to enterprise security.
We at DeTaSECURE comprehend your company's potential and create a cloud security program at each tier in accordance with your corporate objectives. After carefully analysing your company's demands and resources, we incorporate cloud into your current enterprise security system. Then, in order to implement an effective cloud security plan, we create a novel strategy.

- Visibility - We provide unified, uniform visibility, monitoring, and management of cloud controls, as well as containers from various cloud service providers, through our cloud computing security applications.
- Recommendations - Our cloud security management solutions provide real-time, context-driven recommendations that assist teams in concentrating on actual actions rather than false positives and facilitate faster decision making.
- Overseeing access control – Employees come and go from the company, and staff members change jobs and departments.
- An access control audit may make sure that access is managed responsibly, making sure, for instance, that access is removed when employees depart and that new hires are given the fewest privileges possible.
- Secure access to the cloud – A cloud security audit can assist in confirming how staff members and other users access cloud systems, such as by using a VPN through an encrypted route.
- Security of APIs and third-party tools – The majority of cloud systems employ a wide range of third-party technologies and APIs. Every API and third-party tool carries the danger of compromising security. Audits can find security flaws in tools and APIs and assist the company in fixing them.
- Verifying backup strategies – The cloud makes backups simple to complete. However, this only works if a company's cloud platform is set up to perform the backups on a regular basis. An audit can confirm that the company backs up all important systems and has implemented security controls to protect those backups.
- Analyze the security posture of the cloud provider - A cloud security audit starts with assessing the security posture of the cloud provider and building a rapport with staff in order to get the necessary data. Assess security practises and policies as part of your audit, and use trustworthy data from cloud systems to assess the risk that comes with using cloud systems.
- Determine the Attack Surface - Recognize the applications that are being used in cloud instances and containers and whether the organisation has given their approval or whether they are examples of shadow IT. To achieve compliance, all workloads must be standardised and equipped with the necessary security safeguards.
- Set Strong Access Controls - Breach of access management is one of the most common cloud security issues. Credentials to crucial cloud resources can get into the wrong hands in a variety of different ways. The following actions can be taken to reduce risk on your end:
- Establish robust password guidelines and criteria
- Put a requirement on multi-factor authentication (MFA)
- Restriction of administrative rights
- Assume the least privilege standard for using all cloud assets.
- Develop External Sharing Standards - Standards for data sharing via shared drives, calendars, files, and folders must be put in place. The best strategy is to start with the highest standards and then relax security limits as necessary. Except in exceptional situations, folders and files containing the most sensitive data, such as personally identifiable information (PII), financial information, and protected health information (PHI), should not be made available for external access.
- Automate Patching - To maintain the security of your cloud environment, you should patch frequently. For security and IT teams, however, mastering patch management can be difficult. According to numerous studies, it takes businesses more than a month on average to fix security flaws.
- Prioritizing the most crucial fixes and making sure that essential assets are automatically patched on a regular basis are the keys to effective patching. Regular manual reviews should be added to automation to make sure patching methods are operating effectively.
- Use SIEM to Standardize Cloud Logs - Organizations can use security information and event management (SIEM) systems to comply with a variety of industry standards and laws. An accepted method for auditing activity on an IT network is log management, a SIEM feature. SIEM systems are able to gather cloud logs in a uniform format, give editors access to log data, and automatically produce the reports required for different compliance standards.
- Reporting - Report identified vulnerabilities / security flaws / weaknesses in Web 3.0 infrastructure components along with the possible impact, root cause and remediation process. For each identified weakness, a risk rating would be assigned primarily based on the probable business impact and significance of occurrence. All the test would be done with prior approval from Organization.
