Secure Your Cloud Data and Applications with
Infoguard’s Cloud Security
More companies are moving to the cloud. That’s where they now store, process, and host their data and applications. While cloud computing comes with a host of benefits, it has raised the bar for cybersecurity. Organizations now more than ever need a reliable and trusted cloud security solution.
Infoguard provides comprehensive cloud security solutions, regardless of what cloud services the organizations use or provide such as SaaS, PaaS, IaaS or deployment model such as public, private, hybrid.
Infoguard cloud security solutions keep data secure by:
Providing Visibility into Cloud Services, Applications, and Users Activities
Many traditional security solutions have a blind spot for cloud activities. Infoguard offers new needed control points with more granular insights. Data that shows
- What cloud applications and services are employees using?
- How are they using these apps?
- Who is accessing the riskiest apps?
- How much bandwidth is being consumed by these apps?
- Which countries and locations involved?
Providing Shadow IT Risk Assessment:
- Identify and block all unauthorized and risky cloud apps and services that are in use without the oversight from the IT organization (Shadow IT).
- Identify and analyze what apps are appropriate for the company’s environment. Take into consideration security controls, compliance regulations, and other essential factors.
- Assess security risks of the cloud applications and services.
Mitigating Security Risks from Shadow IT
- Enforce granular cloud security measures to govern the handling of sensitive information. That includes compliance-related content.
- Detect and block unusual account behavior indicative of malicious activity.
- Integrate cloud visibility and controls with organizations’ existing security solutions.
Reviewing Contracts with Cloud Service Providers
Providing Continuous Monitoring
- Continually track cloud usage activity to monitor security risk profile. Ensure compliance with established security requirements.
Federated Authentication and Authorization
What is the Federated Identity?
Federated Identity is a standard based method for sharing and managing identity data. And, it’s used across security domains, applications, identity management systems, and organizations.
Why Federated Identity?
Organizations must provide security for their customers accessing cloud-based apps and resources. So, they delegate authentication and authorization of their customer’s identity. That is safer than relying on outdated application’s local identity and access list.
What is Federated Single Sign-On (SSO)
Federated SSO, is a user’s single authentication ticket or token, trusted across security domains and organizations. It’s a subset of federated identity management and it relates only to authentication. It’s understood on the level of technical interoperability.
Federated authentication and single sign-on are vital. These primary elements compose Infoguard’s cloud security solutions. They mitigate the security risks of unauthorized access and enhance productivity.
The compromise of a single user password can result in a significant cloud data breach. Both phishing attacks and password breaches represent a single point of failure. This out-security can expose critical data.
The traditional single username and password authentication are no longer secure.
Infoguard provides multi-factor authentication solutions and services. We offer core cloud security elements for both on-premises and SaaS-based placements.
Infoguard multi-factor authentication system solutions and services are inclusive. They incorporate
- text message
- voice call confirmation
And a wide range of biometric authentication such as
- voice recognition
Data Exfiltration and Loss Prevention (DLP)
bypassing the security of traditional perimeter defenses
Besides to tracking what users are uploading or downloading from cloud apps, there are also cloud-to-cloud transactions that must be tracked.
Cloud sensitive content such as intellectual property or confidential information is sharable. That happens with only a few clicks of a mouse. Data gets shared among cloud users, bypassing the scrutiny of traditional perimeter defenses. That is a severe security risk. That can lead to financial risk and liability for the organizations.
Infoguard provides in-cloud, on-premise, and on-the-endpoint data loss prevention solutions.
The solution provides:
- data discovery
- data classifications
- unauthorized data sharing
- enforcement of DLP security policies
FedRAMP Preparation & Readiness
There are requirements for organizations providing cloud services, products, or access to the U.S. government agencies.
These companies must follow FedRAMP, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program assessment and authorizations process.
FedRAMP consists of a subset of NIST Special Publication 800-53 (FISMA) security controls specifically selected to provide protection in cloud environments. A subset has been defined for the FIPS 199 low categorization and the FIPS 199 moderate categorization.
Infoguard security consultants are FedRAMP certified. They have extensive experience in FedRAMP and FISMA security assessments and readiness.
We prepare organizations for FedRAMP requirements and assist in achieving their FedRAMP certifications.
As part of the Infoguard FedRAMP readiness and preparation process:
- Infoguard consultants provide educational training on FedRAMP. They ensure organizations are aware of the FedRAMP compliance standards and its requirements.
- Consultants assess organization’s existing compliance status and identify gaps.
- And they make recommendations and take remedial actions. Always ensuring the client’s stakeholders meet the FedRAMP cloud security standards.
