Secure Your Hybrid Cloud

Security designed for your hybrid infrastructure

Is Security stopping you from adopting a Cloud strategy?

  • 45 percent of IT security professionals say that deploying effective security is their top barrier to cloud adoption
  • 22 percent fear that cloud migrations are falling short on security

Make the Hybrid Cloud Secure!
Today, CIOs are increasingly assured that a cloud-first strategy is the way to go. Even Gartner confirms that 28 percent of spending within key enterprise IT markets will shift to the cloud by 2022, up from 19 percent during 2018.

Even though the adoption to cloud has increased manifold, so have the challenges in regards to cloud security in the hybrid environment. There are a lot of myths and facts around cloud adoption and security seems to be a concern across industries and verticals.

Your Data Center today has transformed to a hybrid environment, with a growing dependence on cloud technology. But managing these environments is a challenge. Differences between your on-premises and public cloud environments make it tough to gain visibility and apply consistent security controls. To enable the benefits of extending your infrastructure to the cloud, security needs to span both environments as hybrid cloud security.

Why Choose Hybrid Cloud For Enhanced Security?

Hybrid clouds enables enterprises to choose where to place their workloads and data based on compliance, regulations, or security guidelines they need to follow.

While the various environments that make up a hybrid cloud remain unique and separate entities, migrating between them is enabled by containers or APIs that help transmit resources and workloads. This separate‚ÄĒyet connected‚ÄĒarchitecture is what allows enterprises to run critical workloads in the private cloud and less sensitive workloads in the public cloud. It‚Äôs an arrangement that minimizes data exposure and allows enterprises to customize a flexible IT portfolio.

The Three Key Tenets to Hybrid Cloud Security 

Have an Upfront Security Strategy : Having a well thought out and elaborate Security Strategy right at the onset is crucial to getting your Cloud strategy succeed. Do not depend on continuing to use your on-perm Security Solutions while migrating to the cloud as it will slow down cloud deployments. Rely heavily after extensive research on the right Security solutions for your business that are built for the cloud.

Ensure you’re compliant

Cloud deployments shift your risk profile and could affect your ability to meet various regulations. With a hybrid cloud environment, achieving compliance presents unique challenges where it’s essential that security policies are followed, in addition to having visibility and reporting into both the cloud and on-premises servers. Know how to check your distributed environments to make sure that they are compliant; how to implement custom or regulatory security baselines; and how to prepare for security audits.

Secure Your Data

Limit data exposure for your organization through encryption. The same data will be either in transit or at rest at different moments in time. You need a variety of security to limit data exposure during either of these states. Extend the same security controls and policies you have for physical servers to virtualized environments and private and public cloud deployments. Top Security areas to focus on for your hybrid environment are data protection, Identify and access, cloud network security, threat management, application security, visibility and intelligence.

Securing You in your Cloud Journey

60% of enterprises that implement appropriate cloud visibility and control tools will experience one-third fewer security failures. ‚Äď Gartner

Despite years of cloud maturity and examples of highly sensitive and regulated workloads, security remains one of the top reasons companies don‚Äôt move specific workloads to the cloud, especially in highly regulated industries. For some, however, cloud security continues to remain largely misunderstood‚ÄĒand certainly underestimated. The security provided by major cloud providers is as good as or better than most enterprise data centers, so this concern should no longer be considered a legitimate road-block to cloud adoption.

Make Cloud Security a Shared Responsibility

Cloud providers deliver select security capabilities through their platforms, but you are responsible for fully protecting the data in your cloud environment and achieving security compliance. So, how do you go about ensuring that your cloud services provider has the industry-leading security coverage you need?

Secure Your Cloud from the inside out:

Today using public cloud services for managing your infrastructure, be it applications or other workloads makes your business more flexible and economic, but with cloud also comes a rapidly evolving IT security landscape that you need to prepared to deal with. You need to protect what you deploy from the ever rampant cyber threats and attacks while maintaining the elasticity your business needs.

The flight to the cloud presents two essential security challenges:

  • How do you enable users to access the cloud securely
  • How do you secure applications deployed in the cloud?

While many organizations still continue to use the older approach to cloud security which involves the use of many disparate point products, which increases cost and complexity for organizations and ultimately exposes them to unnecessary risk.

Locuz your containers today

Stand to gain from the Skyrocketing Container Adoption

Docker’s container format is perhaps the most rapidly and widely adopted datacenter technology in history. This application delivery technology, based on ideas that have been around for more than a decade, is now driving an inexorable transformation of how modern applications are built, delivered and deployed in the enterprise. In a survey done by Diamante of IT leaders, the data suggests something is very clearly starting to change in terms of what IT organizations consider to be their default platform for deploying modern applications.

  • Nearly half (47 percent) of IT leaders surveyed said they plan to deploy containers in a production environment, while another 12 percent say they already have.
  • Over a third of IT leaders (34 percent) adopting containers plan to allocate at least $100,000 to those projects in the near future.
  • 71 percent of respondents have deployed containers on a virtual machine, while 35 percent have deployed them on a public cloud, and 34 percent have deployed containers on a private cloud.

Security is the second biggest issue that has been reported with running containers in a production environment. As the survey suggests security issues in containers are increasingly a major concern and the top roadblock to container deployment today.

OT Security for Industrial IT

Make OT Security Your Priority

Is OT security your top priority?

In the world of cybersecurity, there is no silver bullet. What you can do in your organization is to minimize the attack surfaces and threat vectors, and be vigilant and proactive in your defense against adversaries. Just like any other vertical, Industrial organizations are moving rapidly to take advantage of IT technologies in their operational technology (OT) environments to become more competitive.

At the same time, Security is becoming a priority in industrial IT and Operational Technology (OT) as connectivity to external networks grow and there is an increase in the attacks on Operational Technology. While some organizations are still not aware of the threats that cyberattacks pose to their OT assets and for these organizations, their measures for cybersecurity are usually not tailored to operational technology. While others who while not aware are keen to implement a multi-layered defense-in-depth cybersecurity strategy and stop the cyber threat early in the kill chain across both the IT and OT environments.

Industrial IoT (IIoT) and Operational Technology (OT) Security challenges

While industrial systems are becoming more and more connected, they are also being exposed to more vulnerabilities. The switch from closed to open systems, also referred to as the IT-OT convergence, inbreeding new security threats that need to be addressed.

The key most important reasons for organizations who are in the look out to safeguard their industrial networks are the high costing industrial equipment and the fear of causing damage to communities and economies that an attack could generate. The strongest negative impact of a breach in an industrial set up could even mean casualties in a worst-case scenario. The top three challenges of industrial OT :

Erosion of Network Architecture

Two of the major challenges in securing industrial environments have been initial design and ongoing maintenance. What may have been a solid design to begin with is eroded through ad hoc updates and individual changes to hardware and machinery without consideration for the broader network impact.This kind of organic growth has led to miscalculations of expanding networks and the introduction of wireless communication in a standalone fashion, without consideration of the impact to the original security design. These uncontrolled or poorly controlled OT network evolutions have, in many cases, over time led to weak or inadequate network and systems security.

Pervasive Legacy Systems

Legacy components are not restricted to isolated network segments but have now been consolidated into the IT operational environment. From a security perspective, this is potentially dangerous as many devices may have historical vulnerabilities or weaknesses that have not been patched and updated, or it may be that patches are not even available due to the age of the equipment.

Insecure Operational Protocols

Many industrial control protocols, particularly those that are serial based, were designed without inherent strong security requirements. Furthermore, their operation was often within an assumed secure network. In addition to any inherent weaknesses or vulnerabilities, their operational environment may not have been designed with secured access control in mind.

To mitigate such farfetched repercussions and challenges, it is in the best interest of an industrial organization to security its IT & OT technology. An effective OT Security strategy puts in place solutions that allow complete visibility of network control traffic and establishing the right security policies and thus does not disrupt operations or risk non-compliance. A good OT Security strategy protects processes, people and profit while significantly reducing security vulnerabilities and incidents.

World Class Mobile Security

Secure Your Mobile Assets and Applications

Is your Mobile Security Secure Enough?

Mobility is no longer a trend ‚Äď it‚Äôs how business gets done today. With employees using multiple mobile devices and the availability of thousands of mobile apps, employees can work whenever and wherever they choose. This also means IT now has the dual challenge of supporting mobile productivity and protecting corporate data.

Today over 50 percent of business PCs are mobile, and the increase in Internet of Things (IoT) devices poses new challenges to network security. Therefore it’s imperative for enterprise IT to evolve itself and care for mobile security.

Mobile device security is the full protection of data on portable devices and the network connected to the devices. Securing mobile devices requires a unified and multi-layered approach.

Components to Mobile Security

To enhance your mobile life instead of getting overwhelmed by all of the mobile devices on your network as workplaces become increasingly mobile. It is important to understand each of the components that together builds for a robust mobile security. Here’s a look at some of the solutions that can remove the mobile threat for your enterprise.

  • VPN :¬†A virtual private network, or VPN, is how a device connects to a network. This encrypted connection helps ensure that sensitive data is transmitted safely without getting compromised. It prevents unauthorized people from snooping on the traffic and allows the user to conduct remote work safely.
  • Secure web gateway :¬†Secure web gateways provide powerful, overarching cloud security. By integrating security with the cloud, you can identify an attack on one location and immediately prevent it at other branches.
  • Endpoint Security :¬†As organizations embrace flexible and mobile workforces, they must deploy networks that allow remote access. Endpoint security solutions protect corporations by monitoring the files and processes on every mobile device that accesses a network, scanning continuously for malicious patterns, it identifies threats early.
  • Email Security :¬†While email is the most important tool for business communication to run smoothly it is also the leading attack route for security breaches. Good email security includes advanced threat protection capabilities that detect, block, and remediate threats faster; prevent data loss; and secure important information in transit with end-to-end encryption.
  • Cloud Access Security Broker :¬†Your network must secure where and how your employees work, including in the cloud. You will need a cloud access security broker (CASB), a tool that functions as a gateway between on-premises infrastructure and cloud applications
