Running a business these days often means managing a series of online accounts and figures, with a little shipping and perhaps some calling. Of course, this lacks the physical security of physical businesses. Many turn to other monitoring and management packages that can be accessed by clients, while algorithms and other features keep access to where it’s necessary. Cloud security can be tricky and without at least some education in the field, users can make simple mistakes that could ruin businesses.
Internet of Thing (IoT) devices have taken over our lives. Everything from your refrigerator, thermostat, and light bulbs are talking to the cloud. This is generating an unprecedented amount of data that is traversing the Internet and needs to be stored somewhere, hopefully securely.
BYOD is defined by Google as the practice of allowing employees of an organization to use their own personal devices for work purposes. This includes mobile phones, laptops, and tablets. Given the sharp increase in the number of companies taking advantage of all that BYOD offers, several similar acronyms have developed, such as BYOT (Bring…
Moving to the cloud takes you out of the data center business and enables you to focus your company’s efforts on what it does best. Cloud providers have a massive advantage over in-house and on-premises solutions in that they are backed by millions of dollars of research and development, as well as an international network of hardware dedicated to providing the best possible IT solution for their clients.
Last month Bob Violino wrote a great article about “The dirty dozen: 12 top cloud security threats.” At CCSI we are seeing many of our customers with aggressive “move to the cloud” or “cloud first” initiatives. As they move forward, we always advise them that they keep a close eye on their security posture and attack surface.
Today, people expect to be able to access their information anytime, from any type of device, and from anyplace in the world. Mobile devices and the Cloud have fed this expectation. With all of this access comes an increasingly complex network infrastructure.
Host Larry Bianculli speaks with Joe Goldberg, Cloud Practice Manager, at CCSI, on Cloud Security. Where to begin and what to worry about.
The ripping benefits of cloud computing have been widely touted – business agility, scalability, efficiencies and cost savings among the top. Fortunately, more and more companies are seen migrating and building mission-critical Java applications specifically for cloud environments showing no signs of slowing down. At the same time, such technology has exposed us to threats and risks previously unheard of.
Cloud security is the protection of data, applications, and infrastructures involved in cloud computing. Just like on-prem IT security, cloud security still has concerns like unauthorized data leaks, weak access controls, susceptibility to attacks, and threats to availability.
Agile development has been increasingly evolving since the creation of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development in 2001. The desire to create better development methods has introduced a methodology that promotes efficiency, collaboration, flexibility, and fast turnaround. Now, eighteen years later, agile development is rising in popularity and might soon replace the traditional waterful approach.…
