Top reasons why Endpoint Security should move to Cloud
The Cloud is changing the way IT services and solutions are delivered. Software as a Service (SaaS) tools, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) Cloud are making it possible for your organization to enable cost savings, integration, visibility and scalability in the cloud architecture.
This transformation has resulted in increased awareness about your endpoint security. Here’s why Cloud makes it possible for your security teams to regain control over endpoints.
Gain Intel from Hackers’ Attack
Hackers are usually funded by parties with deep pockets and political interests. They get hold of the on-premise security solutions and analyze them to gain insights into their weak points and vulnerabilities.
This is not possible in the Cloud architecture as every attack is recorded, analyzed and shared with sensors on every defenders’ machine, preventing that attack from being used again. In this way the Cloud model changes the security.
Every attack is a learning experience for others
Cloud architecture provides the ability to record and learn from new attacks. The intelligence gathered about the attack techniques will provide better insights, and security for every community member, which can be effectively shared to protect every endpoint across the community in real time.
The cloud architecture supports real-time, behavioural analysis and response to both known and unknown threats. It provides an adaptive security model with full visibility into the end point, which allows your defences to be created in real time.
Safeguard sensitive customer information
The biggest concern for the organization is the way in which security data is collected and stored. It should limit this data collection to bare minimum to ensure proper protection. This means transmitting and storing only endpoint activity meta data such as process start/stop times, network connection activity, etc. It should ignore potentially sensitive data residing on the endpoint.
The cloud providers should hold high standards for security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. They should adhere to the complaint policies and must provide a multi-tenant platform that isolates individual customer information, while maintaining privacy.
Protection both On and Off the network
In today’s Bring Your Own Device mobile workforce, users are working from home and on the road. The endpoint security provided by the cloud makes it possible to manage remote devices and assets easily, both on and off the VPN network. It makes the IT personnel from managing the IT infrastructure as it is taken care of by the cloud provider.
Delayed response to intrusions
The average response to an on-premise security breach is a couple of days, as vendors must take preventive actions. The time constraint to mitigate the risks involves physical equipment and personnel; is advantages to the intruders.
With a Cloud endpoint solution, it is possible to get remote incident responders the right information immediately. The security analysts can start work right away and respond much more swiftly.
The traditional on-premises endpoint security solutions are constrained by the growing needs of your organization. As your needs grow, so does your infrastructure, making it very complex to manage its security.
Scalability represents an additional advantage to Cloud architecture. It is possible for information to be centralized and access controls make it possible to ensure only the right people can see the data they need to get their job done. Everything scales dynamically so that you always pay only for the security solutions that you need. This is one of the most often reason for moving to the cloud.
