With more security breaches coming to light every day, protecting your sensitive data has never been more important. Whether for regulatory compliance reasons, internal guidelines or simply good practice, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) security is critical to safeguarding your information.
True North is a leader in providing IaaS solutions, and our commitment to proactive security measures is second to none. Our secure virtual environment, robust network and state of the art physical security at our data centers will give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your data is properly safeguarded.
IaaS Security Concerns
Many cloud computing security issues in Infrastructure as a Service revolve around two major areas: the physical security of the servers and the data vulnerability of the network itself.
It’s incumbent upon the hosting provider to ensure that when migrating their client’s data from onsite servers to offsite cloud hosting the process is conducted in a safe and secure way. Physical servers are only as secure as the level of diligence applied to them, and unsecured equipment can easily become the source of a data breach.
Also, the software environment of the network can be vulnerable to malicious attacks if not properly protected. It’s vital that IT staff work to ensure that security patches are continually deployed and that the latest up to date versions are in place.
True North’s IaaS Security Measures
True North mitigates these IaaS security concerns by incorporating the highest levels of physical security in our data centers. These security measures include:
