Part 2: Data Security in the Cloud

Cloud Lock

This is the second part of 5 parts discussion where I will present the main risks of Cloud Computing and how CloudMask addresses those risks. I hope to receive your comments. W.A.

Any organization that is contemplating using cloud-based services for its computing architecture is necessarily worried about how it is to protect, control and ensure safety for its data that is stored with a third party.

Encryption can be used to protect and secure data while it is in-transit or in storage, but traditional encryption leaves data unprotected while it is being processed in the cloud application. Data will also be unprotected when even simple operations such as search or sort or indexing are carried out.

There is a requirement, therefore of addressing major security challenges to data safety in the cloud. As we saw previously, data can be unprotected during processing even if it is otherwise encrypted. We need to ensure that -

  • Data security best practices are implemented, and there is clear separation between the data owner and the cloud service provider
  • Data must be kept secure even if there is a targeted attack against the cloud application you are using
  • Your data must stay secure even if there is a rogue employee at the cloud service provider
  • Data must remain safe even if it lost or stolen or is mixed with other party data in the cloud
  • Data security should be ensured even if the cloud service provider is made to surrender your data to a government agency

CloudMask provides Comprehensive Data Security

CloudMask follows the principle of encryption in use, Tokenization. It continues to provide protection to your data while ensuring you still get the complete functionality of your applications. CloudMask security begins as your data leaves the user’s end device. You are the only one who hold the key to decrypt the data Your data is never in clear text outside your end-device but the encryption process is such that all your applications continue to work with encrypted data and yet deliver the correct results.

Should data be compromised in transmission or from the cloud service provider, or even if a hacker manages to get credentials of your employee, they will only get tokenized data that they will not be able to decipher.

With CloudMask on your side, you can use cloud services with complete peace of mind.
