What is Cloud Security?

Cloud security comprises the policies, controls, and technologies that collaborate to enhance cloud management. Cloud security helps SMBs to protect their data from theft, leakage, attacks, and deletion.

Cloud computing has three 3 basic core elements

  • Infrastructure as a service – IaaS allows clients to rent or lease IT infrastructures like servers for storage purposes. Users acquire services on demand and can install OS or applications on the acquired servers.   
  • Platform as a service, – PaaS allows users to develop, run, and manage computer applications without creating the cloud platform required for executing those services. This cloud model is suitable for development companies who want to focus on building software applications and leave management of middleware, OS and storage services to the cloud service provider.
  • Software as a Service – SaaS is a cloud model that allows software vendors to host applications and then the end-users can access these applications from the cloud service provider. Example of SaaS products includes Gmail, Office 365, CRM software, and collaboration applications among others.

Cloud Security Challenges

Every business wants it all. A secure data application that can be accessed anywhere using any device. Cloud computing technology can make this happen. However, there are inherent security challenges that organisations must deal with to make this dream a reality.

DDoS and DoS Attacks


As businesses continue moving their operations to the cloud, the cloud platforms have become a soft target for malicious attacks. A DDoS attack overwhelms systems servers making the website or other web applications inaccessible to legitimate users.

Data breaches


In September 2020, over 267 million records were breached in the UK. These statistics indicate the growing threat involved in securing sensitive data. Unlike on-premise data storage, cloud solutions leave security controls to the cloud service provider. Therefore, you should constantly audit your system and process to ensure your vendor meets Service Level Agreement (SLA).
