More and more businesses are moving their operations to the cloud. And it makes perfect sense. Cloud computing offers exceptional flexibility, scalability, and agility. Employees can work from anywhere at any time, and productivity can soar. But all those benefits bring risks too.

While cloud providers are responsible for safeguarding the infrastructure itself, they aren’t responsible for your data. To operate securely, you need to protect users from hidden threats, restrict the use of unapproved apps, prevent data loss, ensure all users are authorised, and maintain a secure data backup. This is where your organisation can benefit from cloud security services.


Up to 22 website visits per organisation per week are likely to be deemed risky or malicious. And as threats can hide in plain sight on legitimate websites or in pop-up ads, relying on your employees to know when not to click is never enough. To safeguard your business, you need a layered security approach. Our Australia-wide cloud-enabled web security services offer advanced capabilities such as a secure gateway, anti-virus scanning and data loss prevention, so you are protected from threats and always remain compliant.

On average, businesses use almost 2,000 cloud applications. While some of these are approved, others are used under the radar without any security controls in place. Gaining visibility of such a huge number of applications is a mammoth task for your IT team. A Cloud Access Security Broker leverages the power of machine learning technology to provide real-time data, actionable insights, and intuitive controls. By seeing the whole picture, you can identify risky applications and prevent the use of unsanctioned apps.


SSE (security service edge) or SASE (secure access service edge) is not a product that organisations can purchase. It requires taking a holistic view towards digitally transforming your cyber security and IT systems. Rather than rerouting web traffic to external firewalls for assessment, SASE focuses on bolstering your system’s security at the source. Not only does it help to reduce costs by combining vendors with parameter-securing technologies, but it also allows your system to inspect data and viewing policies based on identity, rather than IP addresses. Wherever your users, apps or devices are located, SASE allows your organisation to provide secure access no matter what.


As businesses use more cloud-based applications, the risk of data loss has evolved. Employees work from multiple locations and can access corporate files at any time, without always using approved services. It’s vital for businesses to re-evaluate data governance to protect data both inside and outside of the network perimeter. Data loss prevention (DLP) solutions help control data flow between the corporate network, the cloud, and all endpoints. With visibility through a single dashboard, you can find data loss blind spots in both sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud apps and keep your data safe.


Almost two-thirds of companies still don’t use multi-factor authentication, but single passwords simply aren’t enough. While users can be educated, there is no way to guarantee the same passwords aren’t being used for multiple applications. By centralising cloud authentication and identity with single sign-on multi-factor authentication, you can ensure passwords are as strong as they can be while giving users quick access to their applications.


If your business uses Office 365, you are not alone. Office 365 is used by over 1.5 million companies across the globe. However, Microsoft’s popularity also makes it a prime target, with many brand-spoofed phishing attacks occurring under the Microsoft name. While the service offers native security controls, you need to do more than protect inbound messages. By adopting a comprehensive approach, you can detect compromised accounts, ensure data is discoverable and meet compliance requirements.


Securing IoT devices connected to the cloud involves implementing robust security measures to protect against vulnerabilities. This includes using strong authentication methods, encrypting data both in transit and at rest, and ensuring that firmware and software are regularly updated to guard against the latest threats. Moreover, it’s vital to conduct regular security assessments to identify and mitigate potential vulnerabilities in IoT devices and their connections to the cloud.


Adherence to specific compliance standards relevant to the industry is crucial for ensuring that cloud services and data handling practices meet regulatory requirements. This involves understanding and implementing frameworks such as GDPR, HIPAA, or PCI-DSS, depending on the nature of the data and the geographic location of the organization and its customers. Regular audits and updates to security policies and practices are necessary to maintain compliance and protect sensitive information effectively.


Automation plays a key role in enhancing cloud security by enabling organisations to detect and respond to threats more efficiently. Through the use of automated security tools and services, businesses can implement real-time threat detection, automatic patching, and configuration management. This not only reduces the potential for human error but also allows for the scaling of security measures as the cloud environment grows, ensuring that security keeps pace with the rapid deployment of cloud resources.


Our team of cyber security experts are available for cloud and web security anywhere in Australia, as well as awareness training, incident response, consulting and advisory services, and penetration testing that are tailored to your organisation’s specific requirements.
