Today’s cloud can be scary to those outside of the IT industry. Stories of hacked emails and election servers have overwhelmed the news cycle. For those within the world of cyber security, there are a list of standard practices that significantly lower the threat of cyber attacks. The fact is, cloud vendors devote more engineering resources and technology to keeping systems secure and more compliant with standards than almost any on-premises infrastructure. They have more security professionals working full-time on cloud security than any on-premises deployment could afford to employ. Their attention to detail and ability to detect and resist new attacks is an invaluable resource.
With compliances like ISO, NIST-800 and FedRAMP, enterprises across the globe are operating with greater confidence in cloud service providers (CSP) like Project Hosts. While FedRAMP has gained a large and growing following among federal and state government agencies, including the Department of Defense, Health and Human Services, the Treasury Department and many others, FedRAMP is now making significant inroads in the private sector, specifically in commercial enterprises.
Compliance of FedRAMP’s caliber should put to rest any feelings of concern regarding your cloud security, allowing you to reap the benefits in cost savings, maintenance and the accessibility of cloud based applications.
