Why security is critical for a Cloud-First strategy

Increasing the sturdiness of security
Using the cloud is the best way for companies to quickly adapt and grow. There is a security risk with every new public cloud instance. Even the most basic corporate security requirements are unlikely to be met by cloud instances.

Only 40% of businesses believe they are getting the full benefit of their cloud investments. Security is the biggest impediment to cloud adoption. Issues such as insecure configuration and a lack of expertise may impede the adoption of a cloud-first strategy. When it comes to moving to the cloud, security is seen as a hindrance rather than an asset.

Misconfiguration is the most common cloud vulnerability.

Tips for keeping your data safe in the cloud
These outline the fundamentals of cloud workload deployment security.

What needs to be done:
Preventing unauthorised access to the cloud solution provider platform.
Create PaaS templates that are protected by security controls.
Work with your clients’ current security measures.

How it needs to be done:
Determine the roles that can be played in the given situation.
Use a “hub and spoke” network security strategy to protect on-premise data centres.
Use cloud service provider platform security controls to secure landing zone policies.

Security in the cloud for business
With cloud security, companies are able to:

  • Rather than spending months implementing security controls, use cloud service provider accelerators.
  • Stay on top of what’s already in place.
  • Automated and self-healing processes reduce the number of manual steps.
  • Anti-malicious: Prevent unintentional or malicious security threats.
  • Avoid costly rework by securing the design at the outset.


  • Cloud and platform-based applications are used by 95 percent of IT businesses.
  • Building them is three times faster and 70 percent cheaper than legacy security systems.
  • The cloud SIEM-as-a-service they chose saved them up to 70% over the competition.

We have a thing for clouds.
We reduced the cost of building the systems by 70%, the time it took to go live by 50%, and the operational costs by 20% to 40%. Among these cloud-native security tools, we have:

  • The most effective combination of onshore and offshore workers and teams.
  • There is less time spent on deployment and travel because of Infrastructure as Code (IaC).
  • Collaboration, innovation, and value creation are all facilitated by digital workplaces.
  • Retaining employees lowers the cost of hiring new employees.

In order to help our customers build, migrate, and run their businesses in the cloud, we’ve created special teams towards this effort. According to our experience, security is the first step in a cloud-first strategy.
