Are you planning to use cloud solutions to implement a new business or operating model, but you still need to ensure secure implementation and integration? Or maybe you’re already using cloud apps and want better management of the compliance and cybersecurity risks involved?
Our experts are here to help you establish the measures you need for cloud security. We take into account both your company’s risk profile and the level of protection that your systems and data need.
Our secure cloud life cycle concept has four phases and has been developed so that you can benefit from our security solutions throughout each phase, for both your data and your IT systems.
We start by helping you develop and implement a new security strategy. We also provide support with the cybersecurity aspects throughout the life cycle of your company’s cloud systems.
The next step is designing and shaping secure cloud architecture. We’ll guide you through this process, and help you develop a cloud security plan.
Once your plans are finalised, we’re here to support you in implementing secure cloud architecture. We can also help you configure secure (multi-) cloud environments, from various different providers – including hybrid environments.
After implementation, we’ll remain on hand to help ensure secure operation of your cloud solution, along with providing security monitoring and incident management.
Our Cloud Security Assessment Suite offers a holistic approach to evaluating the security of your cloud systems, including custom security checks on both the technology and the processes you’re using. The suite helps you to identify the current level of maturity of your processes and assess how secure your cloud environment is – whichever cloud provider or service model you’re using.
Cloud technology is constantly undergoing rapid development. This makes it increasingly difficult for users to keep track of all the available cloud security configurations – let alone understand them and keep them updated.
Our Cloud Compliance & Security Inspector (Cloud CSI) Tool checks whether your security settings conform to proven standards and identifies any related weaknesses. It also enables us to see whether you’re making optimal use of all the security functions and technology offered by your cloud provider.
To ensure objectivity and risk based approach in our assessments, we use our own, independent scoring model. This model is based on our extensive experience and expertise gained from our insights into diverse cloud environments around the world.
To ensure a smooth transition to cloud solutions, it’s important to both know the current level of maturity of your relevant IT and security processes, and to define a target level of maturity. Relying on our tried-and-tested cloud security framework, our experts can help you determine the current level of maturity and identify possible risks. We’ll then create a road map based on the results to enable you to address risks, close gaps in security and improve the maturity of your processes.
As part of our architecture assessments, we evaluate security measures for all levels of your cloud service architecture – both those which are planned and those which have already been implemented. This gives an overview of weaknesses in the architecture and generates recommendations to ensure protection against, detection of, and response to relevant cybersecurity threats.
We can help you implement security information and event management (SIEM) solutions and migrate them to the cloud. Our experts are also on hand with our cloud monitoring implementation methodology to guide you through the full implementation and configuration process for SIEM solutions such as Azure Sentinel.
Azure Sentinel is our managed service for security monitoring, both for your cloud solutions and your on-premises software. Together with our security expertise, the solution’s integrated AI and machine learning functions help to considerably simplify day-to-day security operations, providing automated response processes and an outstanding reduction in false positive rates.
“More and more companies are outsourcing all kinds of business-critical applications and data to cloud providers, which makes it essential to ensure that preventive, sustainable data security and cybersecurity measures are also in place in cloud solutions.”
