Propelling Cloud Security for Aviation Industry

Propelling the skies in North Africa & the Middle East is the largest low-cost carrier. The cloud security for Aviation Industry giant has this expertise of playing with volumes largely focusing on cutting down operational costs and providing low-cost flight and freight solutions. Connecting almost 130 hot destinations in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North Africa, they are the best air travel service providers not only ensuring comfort but also offering cost benefits and reliability. Their unique “Fly More” ideation has laid a strong foundation for passengers where they prefer traveling more frequently than ever before, ever-expanding their customers’ horizons to new locations. While servicing the skies, they soon realized the value of adopting cloud-based applications into their operations to make their business model more scalable to cater to their customers’ growing demands for air travel. This adoption of cloud applications accounted for a manifold increase in production volumes and also expedited the turnaround times by bringing efficiency into the system. This massive increase in volumes gave birth to not only new opportunities but also threats in the form of lapses in cloud security due to data proliferation. They were immediately provided with a quick-fix solution in the form of CloudCodes CASB solution to address their growing concerns regarding cloud security and data protection over their cloud-based network.

Bottlenecks of Cloud Adoption

The cloud adoption for the aviation industry giant was not a smooth transition as the confidentiality and privacy of their passengers’ data immediately came under the radar of threats from cybercriminals. The free data access provided to the employees and cloud users by the cloud applications to access crucial data freely further exposed the sensitive data to people with ill-intent. In absence of security checks and alerts over cloud-based operations, the probability of data leakage was amplified, posing a serious threat to the newly escalated business. They were not estranged from the fact that any leakage of private and confidential data of the passengers may lead to dangerous outcomes at any given point in time. Their IT department was meticulously engaged in troubleshooting cloud security issues and amounts to wastage of crucial work hours and manpower in just sorting out the sorties. They soon recognized the need for stringent restrictions to be imposed on data access and not providing free data access to any user. The main challenge to smooth operations they figured out was with a shared mailbox for their department ids.

CloudCodes CASB Solution Enforced Robust Cloud Security for Aviation Industry

The network offices of this aviation industry giant were soon seemed to focus all their efforts collectively to find a perfect cloud security solution to strengthen their cloud-based operations from all such malicious attempts for data leakages. Their days of research and meticulous focus pointed towards the new robust technology in the form of Cloud Access Security Brokers. The next step for them was to get hold of a perfect technology partner to provide a stringent CASB solution to best suit their operational requirements without impacting the true nature and theory of the business.
