Cloud Network Security and Compliance How secure is your data on the cloud? Whether you’re a private company or public-sector organization, you’re responsible for protecting sensitive data and complying with industry regulations. But when you’re migrating, accessing or storing critical data in the cloud, insecure cloud environments can be a liability — and a breach can be catastrophic, both to your finances and reputation. Secure Your Cloud Environment The Carbon60 Approach to Cloud Network Security and Compliance Network security and compliance in a hybrid world are complex. Organizations are often unprepared for the quickly evolving cloud security model, making it difficult to keep up — and making governance and compliance more difficult than ever. At Carbon60, we leverage our familiarity with complex cloud security and compliance requirements through strategic consultation, assessment processes and advanced support: SOC2 Type 2 audits are conducted annually on the processes and security controls of our managed cloud network security services operations and security policies. Our technology partners, including hyperscale cloud providers and colocation providers, also undergo SOC2 audits. We help clients execute their own SOC audits, as well as PCI-DSS, HIPAA and Canadian privacy requirements for specific compliance requirements. Our approach to cloud network security involves a comprehensive Information Security Management System (ISMS) based on the ISO 27001 framework. Multi-Level Cloud Security: Never Put All Your Eggs in One Basket Our multi-level approach to operational and physical security ensures checks and balances are in place, so if one layer is breached you’re still protected. We also leverage industry-leading security tools to identify behaviours or actions on cloud computing systems and servers to stop breaches. We offer a full cloud network security solution including several managed security services along with professional services to help you achieve the cloud network security and compliance you need to protect your business. Private Cloud Security: Carbon60 takes a holistic approach to private cloud security with services including patch management, endpoint protection and data center firewalls. Additional managed security services include web application firewalls, vulnerability scanning, SIEM and penetration testing. Public Cloud Security: Carbon60 provides comprehensive managed public cloud services to ensure your data is safe on public cloud platforms. We incorporate a Shared Responsibility Model whereby the security of the public cloud platform is the responsibility of the public cloud provider and security in the cloud is an individual organization’s responsibility. Our public cloud security services include a security risk report, managed risk, managed detection and response, managed security awareness, SIEM, vulnerability management, penetration testing, endpoint protection, and web application firewall.

Network Perimeter Security: Cloud-native firewall and intrusion detection/protection systems that give you cloud security without introducing latency.

Cloud security involves the protection of your cloud-based infrastructure and cloud applications to minimize the risk of malicious actors gaining access to your critical data and cloud systems. Why is cloud security important? Insecure cloud environments, including private, public or hybrid cloud environments, can leave your data and cloud networks vulnerable to malicious cyber attacks. This can disrupt your business operations and have a disastrous effect on your company’s finances and reputation. How secure is cloud infrastructure? All cloud providers offer some form of encryption and continuous monitoring to ensure all data stored on the cloud is safe from cybersecurity threats. Carbon60 provides 24/7 monitoring to ensure your data and systems are always protected. We also offer comprehensive backup and recovery to protect the integrity of your complex and business-critical workloads and data. What are the challenges to cloud security? There are a number of challenges to cloud security. Misconfigurations of your cloud security settings can leave your systems vulnerable to attacks. Application programming interfaces (APIs), including access management, multi-factor authentication, activity control and end-to-end encryption, can also leave your network vulnerable if not configured correctly. Other threats include human error and malicious insiders sharing your data and allowing unauthorized network access. How do I secure my cloud network? There are various ways to ensure your cloud network is secured. Having a solid backup and recovery plan in place is important. Other ways to secure your cloud environment include patch management, endpoint protection, data centre and web application firewalls, vulnerability scanning, SIEM and penetration testing. Working with a managed cloud services provider like Carbon60 will ensure full cloud network security for your cloud environments. Who is responsible for cloud security? All organizations are responsible for protecting their own sensitive data and complying with industry regulations. While the security of the cloud platform is the responsibility of the public cloud provider, the security of what is stored in the cloud is each user’s own responsibility.
