The Sky is Not the Limit: Secure Your Cloud-Based Infrastructure
If you haven't seen it yet, we've written a new eBook called “The Sky is Not the Limit: Secure Your Cloud-Based Infrastructure". It provides an overview of why cloud security is so critical for any business intending to rely upon a cloud based infrastructure. Here’s a sample of what to expect from the eBook:
"Securing The Cloud Can Be Simple
Using a password alone is not enough, when it comes to securing your cloud based systems. There are a number of ways you can improve your cloud security without breaking your budget, so let’s look at a three effective methods.
Solution One: Filtering logins with IP geolocation
IP addresses can be regionally mapped out, so if all your technicians will be operating in a set area (statewide, countrywide, etc.), then any requests to access a cloud service outside of that IP range can be blocked. If your technicians all live and work in Chicago, why would you allow someone with a IP address from Mexico try to login?
Despite its utility, IP filtering on its own isn’t enough. It would be best to implement a multi-factor authentication and/or single sign-on system in order to ensure a strong degree of security.
Solution Two: Multi-Factor Authentication
“Authentication” refers to verifying the identity of a person. The term “factor,” refers to the different types of identity tests someone must successfully complete to identify themselves. For IT security, these factors often filter down into three broad categories…"
