DUBLIN, June 08, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jndgg3/cloud_attributes) has announced the addition of the "Cloud Attributes and Top Tier Security - Together at Last" report to their offering.
As cloud options continue to multiply and mutate, so too are the options for securing workloads and sensitive data in cloud environments. Even with options, cloud security concerns remain high. From a survey that concluded earlier this year of information security professionals, the level of cloud security concerns is both extensive and high. The list of concerns is data breaches and data loss; and, as expected, the subset of survey respondents in the healthcare and finance (banking, financial services, and insurance) industry verticals have the highest concentration of elevated concern.
Survey results like this lead one to wonder if any cloud option is suitable for the most security- conscious and data privacy-regulated verticals. Yet, there is reason to believe that there is a suitable cloud option when taking a look at the security-first approach that has been the mainstay at FireHost, a secure cloud hosting provider.
Furthermore, the company's recently announced complimentary cyber warranty demonstrates its confidence in effectively defending against threats intent on stealing or compromising sensitive data of FireHost's clients. In this insight, we briefly outline the primary approaches to building customized security in the cloud, and then we turn our attention to the FireHost approach.
Just as workloads are diverse, the parameters that businesses and public institutions require for hosting these workloads in the cloud must also be tailored. In other words, a single one-size-fits-all, general purpose cloud environment for all workloads has muted appeal relative to the customization that has been part of workloads hosted in private data centers.
To their credit, cloud providers have never been blind to this reality, and have established the means for their cloud tenants to customize.
