Cloud Architecture & Security Review

Assessing the risks associated with cloud computing (e.g., data integrity, privacy, recovery, and multi-tenant isolation) is critical to the successful adoption of cloud computing technologies. CryptoForensics’ Cloud Architecture and Security Review offerings are cost-effective cloud security services that help clients to manage their organization’s risk in order to reduce the burden on internal resources. Cloud computing offers several key advantages to organizations—including reduced costs, automation, hardware independence, high availability, and increased flexibility—and each component comes with associated security and privacy costs.

The deployment of cloud technologies can drastically alter an organization’s risk landscape, impacting confidentiality, privacy, integrity, regulatory compliance, availability, and e discovery, as well as incident response and forensics. Therefore, it is important to ensure that proper security controls are in place. Our cloud computing and security review expertise can help you to:

  • Ease the transition to cloud-based services by avoiding serious security pitfalls. CryptoForensics can design, implement, and assess a cloud solution that will meet the security requirements of your entire operations or a segment of it.
  • Assure clients that your cloud solution is secure. CryptoForensics experts can assess the physical and application security of your cloud solution. In addition, hosting companies or enterprises that host their own products or solutions can reassure clients and business partners that their systems are secure. After an assessment, CryptoForensics will provide a letter of attestation to disseminate to your clients, new and old alike, assuring them that your cloud solution has been built with security best practices and requirements in mind.

Today, most enterprises try to deal with cybersecurity threats by focusing inwardly through conducting vulnerability assessments, making detailed network maps, and in some cases, deploying robust patch management processes to continuously monitor their networks and systems. While this approach provides some benefits, against many cyber threats it's ineffective. Most corporate networks are so large and complex that it's simply too difficult to identify all of their assets, or all of their vulnerabilities, and patch them fast enough. Today's cyber wrongdoers are sophisticated, well-funded, and patient—they use a wide range of techniques to penetrate even well-protected enterprises...
