Cloud Security

As organizations move towards cloud infrastructure, they are realizing many benefits, from scalability and cost savings to faster modernization. But whether organizations are building their IT environment entirely in the cloud, implementing a hybrid model, or transitioning legacy systems to cloud services, all come with security risks that can only be addressed with proper implementation and oversight.

Security challenges for cloud implementations include a lack of visibility into data access, inconsistent access management, regulatory requirements affecting both government and commercial entities and multi-tenancy in public cloud environments. Secure cloud architecture helps to ensure compliance with industry standards while keeping your data - and customers - safe.

With years of experience serving large federal agencies and private industry partners with secure IT solutions, DataLock provides expertise you can depend on to develop secure cloud architecture, keep your systems compliant and prevent data breaches.

Cloud Security Facts

  • In 2023, Gartner predicts that global cloud spend will reach $600 billion
  • In 2022, nearly half of all businesses reported a cloud-based data breach or failed audit within the past 12 months
  • According to a recent study from IBM, two-thirds of all cloud breaches can be attributed to exposed APIs

Cloud Security Services
