Cloud / Applicaton Security
Every time there is a conversation about digital storage, we are all bound to drop the word ‘cloud’ into the conversation. Since a bulk of the world’s data seems to be stored using this cloud technology ,securing that data is a priority for organisations. Cloud computing security is a fast-growing service that provides many of the same functionalities as traditional IT security. This includes protecting critical information from theft, data leakage and deletion.
One of the benefits of cloud services is that you can operate at scale and still remain secure. It is similar to how you currently manage security, but now you have new ways of delivering security solutions that address new areas of concern. Cloud security does not change the approach on how to manage security from preventing to detective and corrective actions. but it does however give you the ability to perform these activities in a more agile manner.
When moving to the cloud take the time to review your security posture and what changes and controls need to be implemented to operate securely. You want a cloud platform that offers a wide variety of security services to address various requirements and by doing so you benefit from all the new features as they become available.
CLOUD ACCESS SECURITY BROKERS
A cloud access security broker (CASB) is a software tool or service that acts as the passage between the organisations own data infrastructure and the cloud provider’s infrastructure. The CASB makes sure that data breach is avoided by ensuring that network traffic between on-premises devices and the cloud provider complies with the organization's security policies. Cloud access security brokers also decide on the level of access control and even deal with encryption and profiling.
Forcepoint CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker)
With Forcepoint CASB, organizations can now secure users as they stay productive while using cloud applications. Forcepoint CASB not only provides the ability to discover and assess risk from the use of unsanctioned cloud applications, it can also control how sanctioned cloud applications (e.g., Office 365, Google Suite, Salesforce, Box, Dropbox) are used in order to prevent the loss of critical data and IP.
The use of Applications is now critical to every businesses needs and is rapidly expanding into everyone’s life. Mobile and cloud computing are dramatically changing the way we do business. Today, the world runs on applications, and, as a result, every company is becoming a software company – regardless of its primary business. And it’s imperative that every organisation protects its applications. Application security is the use of software, hardware, and procedural methods to protect applications from external threats. Every application, be it purchased or developed in house needs to be protected against vulnerabilities and data loss.
Paramount’s range of application security solutions can help you build a strong system of defense against the loss of any assets required for the smooth operation of your business.
Solutions we offer
Web Application FirewallingNotice how some of the websites you use come with an ‘http’ instead of an ‘https’? The ones which come with the ‘http’ are actually lacking a security certificate making it a potential vulnerability. Web Application Firewalling monitors, filters and blocks HTTP traffic to and from a web application. By inspecting HTTP traffic, it can prevent attacks stemming from web application security flaws, such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS) and security misconfigurations.
Application Security ScanningWhen you use any web application it’s important to make sure that it is safe and free from malware of any sort. Application Scanners are automated tools that scan web applications, normally from the outside, to look for security vulnerabilities such as Cross-site scripting, SQL Injection, Command Injection, Path Traversal and insecure server configuration.
