Hybrid workspaces have become the current flavor, and technology is spearheading this, disrupting the age-old industry norms. Your critical data is at risk while working remotely in an on-premises environment. On the contrary, cloud computing brings agility, scalability, business continuity, low maintenance cost, collaboration efficiency, the flexibility of work practices.

According to a new study, the market size of global cloud computing is predicted to reach USD 1,251.09 billion in 2028, with a CAGR of 19.1% from 2021 to 2028. It has been attributed to many factors like cloud migration across various industries, 5G, enormous data consumption, Internet of Things (IoT), and the big winner Artificial Intelligence (AI) is expected to make a big splash, further supporting the growth for cloud computing.

Further, cloud computing addresses issues of remote working, growth management, and budget management. No wonder many organizations are fast-moving on to the cloud.

Do you know?
  • 49% of companies say that cyber threats have gone up in the past year
  • 78% of C-Suite leaders worry more about cyber security threats over business competition
  • 88% of leaders have started to spend more on cyber security measures post pandemic

 

A pertinent question that comes to our mind is how safe the cloud is. This blog talks about benefits of Cloud Infrastructure security.

Cybersecurity is a significant concern as organizations are gearing up to move their workloads and applications into the cloud. Security concerns are not without reasons. The lack of confidence is also because of a lack of clarity. A clear understanding of the potential dangers of cyber threats and how to maneuver around the gray areas that could lead to undetected gaps in security.

In a shared responsibility model, the cloud service provider takes the responsibility of protecting the hardware, software, networking and other facilities and the organization is responsible for data protection, devices, user accounts and identities. The shared responsibility leaves a potential gap in operating systems, network controls, applications, and directory infrastructure to name a few. The responsibility is based on what kinds of service the organizations opt for, whether it is Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) or Infrastructure-as-as-Service (iPaaS).

Each organization requires a customized solution on what kind of services that will suit them. A good Cloud Service Provider can advise on the right solution.
