Modern organizations rely upon a Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline, hybrid cloud deployments, cloud-native infrastructure and technologies such as Kubernetes, and microservices to drive value to customers faster than ever before. We understand how difficult it is for modern SRE/DevOps teams, who are concentrating on code deployment at speed over security. CDG can help by offering Security at Speed.
Agile companies need a security program that prioritizes speed and automation in order to achieve growth objectives without introducing increased risk. Cloud Security engineers and consultants from Cyber Defense Group will assess, design and implement security controls that measurably improve the security posture of your codebase and cloud infrastructure.
CDG assists clients with customizing their cloud/SaaS platforms in a secure and privacy-aware manner. The cloud is flexible and scalable, which is great for bottom lines but can expose businesses with little cloud experience to unfamiliar risks. The division of responsibility for security between a cloud provider and a customer like you can be difficult to navigate but CDG can help. Your prior focus may have been on hardware security and network intrusion prevention but now it needs to be on cloud security.
Improve your Cloud Security Posture Today:
A: You might be surprised that as a cloud customer, you are likely still responsible for many aspects of privacy and security compliance. For example, often customers are responsible for selecting security settings and privacy controls within a cloud/SaaS solution. In addition, although we’re not lawyers we know that at the end of the day a business is going to be responsible for their vendors even if a data breach is traced back to a SaaS cloud product.
A: Using default settings is easy for the cloud provider but it almost never makes sense for the customer. Default settings are designed to make the cloud or SaaS product as easy to use as possible so you’ll keep renewing that subscription. This approach works until it doesn’t and when it doesn’t, it really doesn’t (hello, data breaches). CDG can work with you at the onset to help you find the right balance between security and ease of use for your employees.
A: Yes, in some ways more than ever. At its core good information management and security is achieved through people and processes and those still abound even in the cloud environment. Leveraging cloud solutions allows companies to grow fast and big, which is great, but it also places the burden of security and privacy on business stakeholders who often have no to little information security experience. Think about the marketing manager being asked to take responsibility for a huge CRM implementation; it makes sense that they wouldn’t know where to start. Having a defined and written information management and security program ensures that everyone in your organization is aware and accountable for the cloud or SaaS systems that they manage.
We protect our clients from cyber criminals, and we create robust security programs which can withstand current and future threats.
An effective security program implements safeguards in a way that enables developers, DevOps, and SREs to implement rapid changes into the organization’s infrastructure.
CDG Security engineers prioritize automation and tailored solutions to achieve infrastructure and code changes faster, safer and more effectively.
