The era of “Long-term Evolution” technologies is the second decade of the 21st century. With the inception of 4G bandwidth, now they are planning to phase out the culture of mobile calls. They are promoting internet telephony over it. “Bring in Your Device” or BYOD is also bringing this same culture of fast speed internet connections. A phenomenon like “cloud computing” forms the mainstay of this LTE technologies which is going to change the fate & face of various “commercial operations” and “business communications” completely.
Set your first step right, and start it with a foolproof security blanket! Hiring a competent Programming and networking team is the first requisite. In the terms of management, we can term it as “Deliverance of IT.” See it from the surface; cloud computing seems like an easy thing. For your employees, it is an upgraded version of organizational networking. Most of the organizations and employees think that it is the same network that they were working; however, this time, they are receiving and sending data to an internet source from a remote location. They are unaware that their BYOD is exposed to many potential threats because business rivals are on a prowl.
With the help of smart hackers, your rivals and other anti-social elements can always crack your communication and steal sensitive data of your organization. Hire a programming team that can ensure optimum feasibility and maximum security to your business communications. It is not a one-step process for them; they can handle the technical part of it in the first step. In the second step, they can bring your entire team onto the same page where security concerns will act like the best concerns for you. If you have a trained team, then it is a kind of an internal security layer that you have created for your business. However, in order to handle the external threats, you can employee certain tools that falls under “Cloud Access Security Brokers.”
Handling a Cloud Access Security Broker CASB system is a delicate task; in the terms of management, we can describe it with the help of two terms. These two terms are “exclusivity and accessibility.” CASB should be designed is such a way that it should not restrict the accessibility of probable customers and prospective clients. On the other hand, it should be strong enough to handle the hacking intentions of a person who is trying to steal some data in the guise of a customer. This makes cloud security a tricky job by all the possible standards. The importance of CASB can be understood with the help of this study report that suggests that by the end of 2022, eighty five percent of Cloud computing networks will employee CASB at various levels of their operations. This study shows an exponential growth because in the year 2015, only five percent of networks were using CASB.
CloudCodes are a part of the system, where an adequate method handles password and data on cloud systems, and it is an integrated mechanism that deals with all the four stages of the operation. These stages are - before saved, after save, before delete and after delete. What we have mentioned here are the four vulnerable points of an operation. There can be much more as per your networking needs and other operational needs. CASB, clubbed together with CloudCodes, can handle many such threats quite considerably.
Learn this trick from some secure cloud environments generated by pioneers like Google and other companies. They succeeded because of two factors; they are able to amend their networks for future better results because of two reasons - first, they created cloud-computing arms in their organizations; and second, they allowed experiments in a secured environment. This is why, on the bottom note, it is our strong recommendation that you should strike a cloud partnership with a sensible team. Motivate your staff to experiment and they will come up with new ideas to make it a self-sustainable cloud networking system by all the possible standards.
Your organization can get the services of CloudCodes. It is a cloud security start-up founded in 2011, which provides cloud security solution to enterprises. gControl and SSO1 Single Sign on (SSO) are its two popular products.. While gControl secures only Google Apps, the new SSO1 supports multiple enterprise cloud applications. These include SalesForce, Zoho, DropBox and Freshdesk; apart from the earlier Google for Work. SSO1 gives capabilities of IdP like self-password, password management and multi-factor authentication (MFA).The MFA uses the fingerprint reading capability of Smartphones to give biometric authentication. It also supports anti-phishing feature that empowers you to restrict entry to login page on the base country or the IP address. Thus, access to the applications from countries that are infamous for hacking or phishing attacks can be easily restricted.
