Most of the web applications are moving to cloud technology. While this enhances the appliaction functionality, it also introduces security issues. Since everything is virtual in case of a cloud hosting, it is difficult to gain fine grain control of the "data at rest" and "data in transit".
Cloud computing technology offers three basic models of implementation.. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). Securing cloud environments is a sweeping proposition that touches on the topics of virtualization security, access control, data protection and a host of other areas.
How do we Secure Cloud Applications?
Valency Networks possesses years of security experience ranging from corporate networks to recent customers requiring cloud computing security. Unlike most other security consultancy offerings, in case of cloud security the approach is purely from design perspective. We deep dive into the cloud architecture, and identify various attack vectors which range from network layer of cloud design, to the cloud aware applications running on virtual data centers or virtual development centers. Cloud security also includes that of web authentication portals which call the cloud service providers API calls. Customers of Valency Networks involve us right from design phase, to the implementation phase.
