Benefits of Cloud-Based Cybersecurity

1. Threat Detection in Present Time
Malware and viruses are identified more rapidly when using a cloud-based cybersecurity strategy. Network monitoring and analysis are typically done in real-time. Threats to the network can be rapidly identified and measures can be immediately implemented to localize and contain the threat.

2. Security Updates / Upgrades
Cloud-based cybersecurity strategies ensure that networks remain constantly up to date with the latest security updates and upgrades. Updates and upgrades are deployed immediately when available across the entire network and end-user devices, ensuring no vulnerabilities can be exploited.

3. Mobile Devices
Mobile devices such as laptops and notebooks pose the greatest risk to a network infrastructure as they are used in several network environments. With a cloud-based cybersecurity strategy, mobile devices connected to the business network are closely monitored for security threats. Controls can be put in place to restrict the access of mobile devices to specific parts of the network.

Five Characteristics of Cloud Computing

Internet Access
With a public cloud environment, users “plug into” the data and applications via an internet connection giving anytime, anywhere access.

Measured Service
Cloud is often pay-as-you-go, where you only pay for what you use. Think about how a utility company meters how much water, electricity, or gas is used and charges based on consumption. The cloud is the same.

On-Demand Self-Service
Services can be requested and provisioned quickly, without the need for manual setup and configuration.

Shared Resource Pooling
Cloud often uses the multi-tenancy model. This means a single application is shared among several users. So, rather than creating a copy of the application for each user, several users, or “tenants” can configure the application to their specific needs.

Rapid Elasticity
Cloud platforms are elastic. An organization can scale its resource usage levels up or down quickly and easily as needs change.
