Bulldog IT – Cloud Security

Cloud security is the technology and best practices designed to ensure information and data are protected within a business’s environment. It is a basic part of any IT infrastructure strategy that utilises the cloud. Cloud security guarantees data privacy and compliance around data stored in the cloud.

Robust cloud security is vital for organisations making the change to the cloud. Security dangers are continually developing and getting more complex, so cloud computing is no less at risk than an on-premise environment. Because of this, it is fundamental to work with a cloud supplier that offers top tier security that has been customised for your infrastructure.

Why Security is important in Cloud Computing

We understand that every organisation is different, and Bulldog IT aim to provide protection for all types of environment. We can assist organisations to implement security policies and ensure that their cloud security adheres to any compliance and legal requirements, such as ISO27001, Cyber Essentials and GDPR regulations.

IT security has never been as significant as it is today. The threat landscape is wider than ever before, with new and more dangerous Malware created daily, businesses need to take every precaution to protect themselves from external as well as internal threats.

The Bulldog IT team focus on an array of IT security services across the country (and abroad). With twenty years’ experience of defining and implementing IT security strategies, Bulldog IT is an IT partner that you can trust to deal with such crucial concerns on your behalf; specialising in the dangers and security issues looked at by small and medium-sized organizations today.

Ensure Integrity

Bulldog IT provides reliable and secure security solutions to protect cloud-based environments, ensuring integrity in any solutions that we provide for clients. As the first layer, it is important to have the right security products in place on the device itself. At the very least clients need to have a secure and managed antivirus solution, but preferably with encryption, antispam and managed anti-malware to help to mitigate the risk of the overall environment.

Other cloud security solutions we recommend implementing include multi factor authentication. MFA uses multiple factors like Knowledge Factors, Possession Factors, and Inherence Factors to verify the identity of people. In most cases, once you have entered your password, it will ask you to verify a 6-digit code sent to your mobile. This is considerably more secure compared to the single-factor authentication.

Patch Management is the process of distributing and applying updates to software and applications that are susceptible to cyber-attacks, helping your organisation reduce its security risk. Our Bulldog IT agent pushes patch updates on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday across all our client’s infrastructure.
