James Melchor, Chief Technology Officer at DYOPATH
Did you know that hardware failure is the main cause of data loss and organizational downtime? Whether you lead a business or an IT department, using the power of the cloud to protect your most valuable assets should be a given. But the path to cloud security isn’t so simple. The formula relies on a range of technologies designed to protect an organization’s cloud-based infrastructure, data and applications. The cloud they reside in can be private, public, or a hybrid, as I explained in my last blog.
As more applications are moved to the cloud, you may unknowingly lack the necessary protection for your data and devices. DYOPATH’S Cloud Services help organizational leaders tackle the complex issue of proactive threat management, starting with an accurate assessment of where they are today. To truly unleash the power of the cloud, this process provides:
- The best configuration for your security system
- Updated tools and resources to address gaps in your system
- Ongoing, expert-level risk reduction
What a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) Will Do for Your Organization
As Chief Technology Officer, I hear from concerned leaders of enterprises in all types of industries. Despite most small businesses having no disaster recovery plan in place, they often don’t know where to start. A common misconception I notice: believing they are secure just because they are “in the cloud.” Companies often discover the hard way that an off-the-shelf SIEM isn’t likely to keep up with their needs as they grow, putting their most valuable assets at risk.
A trusted, industry-leading Cloud Service Provider (CPS) can address multiple needs at once:
- Security: To get the highest level of protection, clients should partner with a provider experienced in managing all of the elements in their IT system.
- Scalability: Organizations need the ability to scale resources up or down to meet the demands of the day, without excess capacity on the premises or lengthy turnaround times.
- Availability: Make sure your provider has the availability to provide anywhere, anytime access to services, tools and data.
What Happens When You Outsource Missing & Outdated Aspects of Your IT?
Outsourcing the missing elements of your security system clarifies what aspects of cybersecurity your organization can handle – and what supplemental resources need to be accessed through the cloud to protect you against future threats.
