With a centralized cloud-based management platform, users can simultaneously monitor door-based events with correlated video footage across their organization in real-time. Some of the key benefits of cloud-based security systems is that they protect an enterprise from cyber threats, guard against internal threats, and prevent data loss.
So what exactly is cloud security? Simply stated, it’s a set of control-based safeguards and technology protections designed to secure resources stored online from leakage, theft, or data loss. Security applications operate as software in the cloud using a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. Various methods are used for protection. Among them, firewalls, which are a mainstay of cloud architecture. Access controls are also used to protect data by allowing the user to set access authorization lists for different assets. This helps to keep critical and sensitive documents from malicious insiders or hackers with stolen credentials. Protecting data while it’s in transit is another key step. Data security methods span virtual private networks (VPNs), encryption, or masking. VPNs enable remote employees to connect to corporate networks via their computer or smartphone. Data masking is a process that encrypts identifiable information and maintains data integrity by keeping important information private. Threat intelligence serves to spot security threats and rates them in order of importance. And, disaster recovery is another critical component, as it assists in recovering data that’s been lost or stolen.
