Cloud Security Assessment
Sekuro’s Cloud Security Assessment service is the ideal first step for any organisation adopting cloud technologies as part of their business strategy. Cloud Service Providers operate on a ‘Shared Security Model’ whereby the lower end of the technology stack is secured, monitored and maintained by the vendor, leaving the upper end of the stack to be secured by the organisation.
Although the responsibility of confidentiality, integrity and availability of data in the cloud is shared between the provider and organisation, the responsibility split is far from even. Using the ‘Iceberg’ analogy demonstrates how much of the responsibility falls onto the organisation.
This can be a daunting task for any organisation to undertake, even those with ready access to skilled cloud security engineers.
Sekuro’s Security Consultants are part of our Technologies and Platforms group, and have extensive experience with Cloud Security good practices and have helped numerous clients secure their cloud environments across multiple vendors. Using industry best-practices and best-of-breed assessment technology, Sekuro is able to harness the power of the cloud using cloud-native functionality to rapid perform security & configuration assessments across thousands of cloud security configurations.
