Cloud Computing Security Software Overview
What is Cloud Computing Security Software?
Cloud computing security software is a set of technologies and policies designed to ensure regulatory compliance and protect information, data applications and infrastructure associated with cloud computing.
How it Differs from Traditional Security
Providers of cloud computing technology such as Software-as-a-Service or Infrastructure-as-a-Service, or Platform-as-a-Service have a responsibility to protect their customers' data through stringent security measures.
Cloud computing technology resources are shared among very large numbers of customers and, for this reason, questions of access control, privacy, data security, data protection, and business continuity and backup are paramount.
All cloud computing providers must provide a base level of security to mitigate these concerns to ensure that customers are in compliance with all relevant regulations.
However, end users of these resources also have responsibility for ensuring that measures are taken to protect their applications through the use of strong passwords and authentication measures.
