A growing number of businesses are discovering AWS as one of the most secure environments for migrating technology resources to the cloud.
By adopting the AWS platform, you are able to better meet your core security and compliance requirements, such as data locality, protection, and confidentiality with the platform’s comprehensive services and features. The ability to automate manual security tasks provides the opportunity for you to shift your focus to scaling and innovating your business.
Vital to success with AWS is making sure your teams properly set up the services used in the cloud. In an increasingly hybrid cloud world, apps and data must be secured. However, cloud security and compliance are not only the duty of the cloud vendor, but there is a joint responsibility with the customer.
Shared responsibility model
In a nutshell, AWS is responsible for protecting the AWS infrastructure for all services that run on the AWS cloud.
The differentiation of responsibility is often referred to as security “of” the cloud versus security “in” the cloud. As a simple rule of thumb, if you can log in and adjust the security settings then the issue is your responsibility, otherwise it’s AWS’s responsibility.
While cloud security is everyone’s business, we know there can be challenges. This is why working with an experienced partner, like Pulsant, can have significant benefits for your organisation.
