Cloud service providers deliver strong platforms. It's up to each organisation using them, however, to configure networking, access controls and monitoring in a secure fashion. Wherever you are at on your Cloud Journey, Q1 Professional Services can help.
Cloud services such as AWS, Azure and GCP promise to provide every aspect of computing, including the network infrastructure, user workstations, servers, software as a service (Saas), databases, and more. The appeal of cloud is clear: these environments offer powerful administrative features, pay-as-you-go prices, and a share security model that takes some of those responsibilities off your plate. But for all the benefits, there are also some new risks and security concerns.
Cloud adoption and migration present separate challenges for security. Adopting cloud services still requires enterprises to meet compliance requirements with their new cloud service providers. The shared responsibility model delineates which secxurity controls are owned by the cloud provider and/or enterprise. Meeting these security requirements help demonstrate compliance requirements for the enterprise.
How can Q1 Group consultants help?
While traditional information technology vendors and information security consulting firms specialise in network, data centre and endpoint security, the move to the cloud necessitates new capabilities. That's why we offer a full suite of collaborative cloud security consulting services, including cloud penetration testing, access management strategy, security risk assessments and application security assessments.
Our cloud security services can help you determine your security risk by evaluating your infrastructure security through our Risk Assessments. We also provide security consulting for data protection best practices, disaster recovery, and helping develop your overall cloud security requirements for DevOps and in-house security teams.
