Cloud Security with Cloud Native Application Firewall

Keeping you and your people protected, no matter what

According to one recent cloud security study, the average global cost of a data breach hit $3.86 million in 2019 – up a massive 6.4% from the previous year. A lot of this has to do with how disparate and complicated computing environments have become in recent memory.
Your IT infrastructure no longer exists exclusively within your business. In fact, the majority of it probably isn’t even on-site at all – it’s housed in a data center somewhere, and resources are delivered on-demand and in real-time over the Internet.

This type of cloud native environment brings with it several key advantages, like the fact that people can work from anywhere, and communication and collaboration have never been easier. But it also dramatically increases the potential attack surface of your business – there are more ways for you to fall victim to a cyber attacker than there were even a decade ago. Every device connected to the web is a potential vulnerability, just waiting to be taken advantage of by someone who knows what they’re doing.

At Cloud Computing Technologies, we’re experts in cloud native environments AND in the best practices that are required to keep them safe. We want you to be able to enjoy all of the power of modern technology with a few of the potential downsides as possible, and that is one goal we will never stop working towards.

Our Cloud Security Solutions

At Cloud Computing Technologies, our cloud security services cover a wide range of areas, including but not limited to:

  • Microservices security. The major advantage of breaking up an application into a series of smaller microservices is that each one can be developed independently. However, that also means that they can be exploited independently – which is why an organic and dedicated approach to microservices security is always recommended. At CCT, we’ll make sure that all of your microservices are successfully protected so that they can safely come together to work as the cohesive whole you need them to be. All of our secure cloud service providers ensure maximum protection for your applications and data.
  • Kubernetes security. Kubernetes essentially acts as a “front door” to any cluster that you’re deploying – meaning that it can either be your first line of defense or your biggest vulnerability depending on the situation. At CCT, we’ll make sure the Kubernetes API cannot be used to attack your cluster, thus compromising your system at the same time. This is where a robust Cloud IDS (Intrusion Detection System) comes in to play. It will detect any external threats and neutralize them. Most of our cloud partners provide both Cloud IDS and IPS (Intrusion Prevention Systems) for added security.
  • Cloud application firewalls. These are fully software-based firewalls that are deployed on network devices that are designed from the ground up for the needs of the modern business. They exist within the secure cloud environment, thus stopping unwanted access to private networks while still allowing your teams to get their critical work done wherever they happen to be.

AWS Cloud Security

AWS is one of our longstanding partners, and we highly recommend their secure cloud solutions. AWS data centers are architected to protect your data, identities, and applications. They ensure core security and compliance requirements.

You can automate many routine security tasks due to the deep integration present AWS Web Application Firewall services. This will allow your security team to spend more time with development and operations teams enforming a DevSecOps culture.

AWS ensures the protection of your data as it flows across its data centers across the globe by encrypting it at the physical layer and additionally at other layers with concepts like TLS. AWS cloud security is also backed with many compliance certifications like PCI-DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, FedRAMP, GDPR, FIPS 140-2, and NIST 800-171.

AWS cloud security provides its own Cloud IDS in order to ensure that all applications are secure. It will detect any malicious activity or security policy violations and inform the relevant administrators.

Azure Cloud Security

Microsoft Azure is another one of our trusted partners, and it offers secure cloud services through its many integrated services. Azure Firewall with Threat Intelligence can detect traffic from known blacklisted IPs and deny access while notifying the relevant administrators. The Azure App Service also identifies vulnerabilities in web applications that are frequently targeted by attackers.
If specialized Intrusion Detection is required, Azure cloud security offers both Cloud IDS and IPS services. In addition, Azure cloud security solutions include a secure key vault for all your cryptographic keys and secrets, specialized DDoS protection, and a web application firewall, among others.
The Azure security center is a centralized control panel for all your security needs. It provides a Security Score which can provide a holistic view of your security posture at any given time. It will allow you to detect failed updates to VMs, vulnerabilities in public-facing endpoints, unencrypted data in transit, and more.
Despite being on secure cloud solutions, we can only expect the number of cyber-attacks taking place around the world and their intensity to increase as time passes. Attackers are becoming more and more proactive and finding sophisticated ways of attaching cloud applications every single day. There’s no such thing as a business that is “too small” to attract their attention. This is evident in Kaspersky lab’s research findings that the average cost of the data breach for a small business is more than $250,000
The point at which you become the target of a cyber attack is INEVITABLE – the odds of such an attack continue to increase each day. What you CAN control is whether or not you become a VICTIM of an attack – and that is exactly what our cloud security solutions are designed to prevent.

The benefits to cloud computing are numerous and significant. Primarily, cloud computing enables your organization to quickly setup a server and applications platform for your virtual office without hardware and software dependencies. In addition, with a cloud based centralized server and application platform, your work from home (WFH) users can securely access business IT resources from any location and any time zone.
Commonly, organizations report significant cost reductions in hardware, licensing, and maintenance after moving to the cloud. This is due to more efficient use of systems as a consumption-based pricing model is more palatable to constrained IT budgets. Rather than dealing with unanticipated huge IT capital outlays, cloud spending is easier to forecast and measure outlays to departments.
Cloud computing can easily accommodate surge capacity needs as it can scale up and scale down to meet your operational requirements on an as needed basis. Your data and systems are protected with a cloud platform that is already security regulatory compliant, so business continuity capability is already addressed.
Collaborate on a higher scale through multiple communications avenues within the cloud. With virtual cloud desktops, secure file access, cloud-based email or applications, your ability to collaborate is greatly enhanced.
At CCT we recommend that all organizations shed all the dependencies and limiting factors of legacy IT by moving into agile, fault-tolerant, and strategic cloud solutions that we provide.
