There is a growing need for cloud-based environments for modern-day enterprises to scale services and applications. As companies of all sizes migrate to cloud-based environments, the digital landscape changes, and security threats are more advanced. Ensure your organization does not face governance or compliance risks by safeguarding your data wherever it is stored.

What is Cloud Security?

Cloud security is a mixture of cybersecurity measures to protect infrastructure, applications, and data stored in public and private cloud platforms to ensure user authentication, data access control, and privacy protection. Cloud security enables enterprises to manage both existing and new cybersecurity challenges in the cloud environment.

Who Needs Cloud Security?

Any business or organization that stores data in public, private, or hybrid cloud environments, regardless of size. Cloud infrastructure can be utilized in all industries across many verticals. Businesses that follow HIPAA and GDPR have stricter data protection standards and guidelines than others. Industries such as:

  • Banking
  • Finance
  • Health
  • Insurance
  • Legal

While any industry can be a target for attacks and threats, cloud-based attacks are on the rise. Organizations should take proactive steps to improve their cloud security.

Why is Cloud Security Important?

According to IBM, the yearly average cost of data breaches is around $3.86 million. It takes about 280 days for companies to identify and contain breaches – ultimately causing breached businesses to pay twice the price.

Cloud security is important to reduce cloud vulnerabilities that have become a huge threat to data security. Because each cloud service provider is different, it is often hard for organizations to stay on top of their cloud accounts, especially if they may not have the same level of security oversight.

Benefits of Cloud Security Testing with RedTeam Security

RedTeam Security cloud security testing allows businesses to reevaluate their cyber security through local and remote systems.

Malicious actors realize the value of cloud-based targets, and exploitation is increasing in nature. Cloud providers have several security responsibilities, but they do not handle everything, and non-technical users must educate themselves on cloud security. Understanding the scope of your security responsibilities can make your entire cloud environment safer.

Testing your cloud security can help your organization have the flexibility to scale and reduce overall cloud operation costs without the fear of endangering compliance of confidential data and overall business operations.

The many benefits of cloud security:

  • Discover vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in the cloud-based environment and infrastructure
  • Ensure software code undergoes security testing at every step in the development, testing, and deployment stages
  • Inspection for incidents in cloud-based applications and virtual machines
  • Detect indication of advanced attacks, lateral movement, and anomalous behaviors
  • Stop attackers from taking control of the cloud platform and seizing cloud resources for illegal purposes.

Our penetration testing services can be performed on a locally hosted or cloud hosted environment. Cloud security assessments can help you uncover what you do not know.

Take The Risk Out Of Your Cloud-Hosted Assets

Cloud Security Assessments

Don’t let a cybersecurity attack halt your business operations. Take the risk out of your cloud-hosted assets with a cloud security assessment.

A cloud security assessment is an overall evaluation that analyzes an organization’s cloud infrastructure. This assessment is done to identify weaknesses, and potential entry points to ensure the organization is protected from cybersecurity risks and exploitation and to prevent future attacks.

Cloud Security Assessment Focus Areas:

There are seven main focus areas of a cloud security assessment, from the overall security posture, access control management, network, storage, platform, and workload security to incident management.

These focus areas help review, document, and evaluate firewall policies, misconfigurations, user accounts, and roles, assess cloud storage postures, and review security practices for virtual, server-hosted containers, and serverless workloads and security configurations of the cloud service provider.

Cloud Penetration Testing

While cloud platforms and environments are pretty efficient and safe, they open a new world for attackers against your organization. RedTeam Security’s cloud penetration testing with manual and automated methods helps identify attacks and the methods of those attacks on your cloud infrastructure. With cloud penetration testing, we will give you the guidance to remediate and prioritize your efforts.

Cloud Web App Security

Web app security is essentially testing web applications hosted in a cloud environment. Web apps or services can transmit vulnerable critical data across the Internet. The RedTeam Security cloud web application penetration testing includes both automated and manual testing to check for technical business logic issues that are not found with automated testing.

Cloud Mobile App Testing

Mobile applications can access data stores and servers in cloud environments. On both the client and server, mobile applications can have vulnerabilities. Cloud mobile application testing is another type of penetration testing service that RedTeam Security offers. We follow industry processes that can address all mobile applications, files created by those applications, web services, files that reside on the device, and any web services the application uses.

API endpoints enable attackers to access data by breaching your application security. Cloud API penetration testing evaluates app-to-app, client-server connections, and data transfer and transmission. We use manual and automated testing to determine authenticated and anonymous user application layer vulnerabilities.

Cloud Security FAQs

For users with privileged administration control, lack of multi-factor authentication (MFA) is the most common cloud security vulnerability. Any role mapped to a cloud environment should have MFA protection.

There are five important cloud security areas

  • Access and Identity Management.
  • Securing Data in the Cloud.
  • Securing the Operating System.
  • Protecting the Network Layer.
  • Managing Security Monitoring, Alerting, Audit Trail, and Incident Response.

Many threats can exploit a system, such as misconfigurations, weakness in identity management, unsecured API, or unpatched software. The main threat is a lack of cloud security strategies that can uncover many cybersecurity threats.

The most common cloud application security best practices include a complete focus and understanding of the adversary, risk reduction, ensuring that a cloud security policy, framework, and architecture are developed and implemented, and consistently monitoring to improve your visibility into the attack surface.

Cloud security will vary for each organization. Best practices from the National Institute of Standards and Technology can be followed to sustain and secure your cloud infrastructure. After initiating those best practices, the next best way to approach cloud security is to utilize a cloud security testing service to help you proactively identify, protect, detect, respond and recover.
