Move to the cloud with confidence supported by ElevenPaths and Check Point

Cloud security is mainly achieved through the implementation of appropriate policies and security technologies, like it is for other IT environments. If you don’t know if you are using the cloud securely, we will guide and help you to rapidly adopt and secure any cloud workload, according to your overall cloud strategy, and to mitigate cloud risks according to your defined risk appetite. That’s the goal of ElevenPaths Public Cloud Managed Security Services.

While public Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) dedicate extensive efforts to security, the challenge exists not in the security of the cloud itself, but in the policies and technologies used to secure and control your deployments in the cloud. In nearly all cases, it is the customer, not the cloud provider, who fails to manage adequately the controls used to protect an organization’s data. In fact, Gartner considers that through 2025, 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault. In addition, the teams that are implementing cloud workloads might not have the security knowledge necessary to adequately protect them.

Cloud compliance teams have traditionally relied on manual data aggregation and testing to assess IT compliance posture. The process of checking and tracking compliance status and resolving issues has been slow and laborious. In this age of heightened security risks, businesses are doing away with periodic security audits in favor of continuous compliance tracking and enforcement. The tools and controls that worked well for security and compliance in the datacenter fail in public cloud environments that demand agility and efficiency. It is no wonder that as organizations move critical workloads to the public cloud, compliance and governance remain a leading concern.

According to Check Point’s 2019 Cloud Security Report, 67% of security teams still complained about lack of visibility into their cloud infrastructure, security, and compliance, and setting consistent security policies across cloud and on premise environments and a lack of qualified security staff tie for third place (31% each). Misconfigurations (20%) is one of the most concerning cloud data leakage vectors because of human error, and precisely lack of experience and qualified security staff (26%) was one of the biggest barriers to wider public cloud adoption cited by respondents.
