iSON Technologies, a leading technology services provider in Africa and Oracle have urged organisations to adopt Cloud Computing Security for business transformation. This was done at an event themed: ‘Modernizing Security on the Cloud’, held recently.
The event emphasized the need for organizations to carry out consistent security policies across hybrid data centres and explained that data security has become an increasing concern now that cloud storage has become more common. The event also discussed issues such as the increasing contemporary threats, vulnerabilities, and fraudulent activities in the cloud as well as ways to ensure an organisation keeps its data safe in the cloud.
In his remarks, Hamilton Iyoha Pre Sales Consultant IT Security at Oracle, CISM said, ‘’ With each passing day, organizations are being exposed to an ever-growing list of threats, configuration oversights, vulnerabilities and fraud events. Visibility to risks and real-time attacks, and the ability to rapidly respond will be among your key success metrics in 2018.
In order to contain these threats and have a visibility into the security posture of your applications across multiple cloud platform and on-premise, you need an Identity Centric and intelligent Security Operation Center (Identity SOC). Oracle is proud to introduce to you the Industry’s first identity-centric framework for security operation centres known as Oracle Identity SOC.
Also, Sharook Hussain, Vice President Sales & Bus Dev. iSON, ME & Africa, outlined the importance of cloud security saying “Enterprises today are exposed to a growing volume of threats, both in scale and sophistication, with increasing regulatory norms being enforced upon them.
“It is essential for companies to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of vital information and data through a robust information security framework. iSON’s Cyber Security Services follow a holistic approach in responding to multi-dimensional cybersecurity risks and providing total visibility and intelligence on new developments within business infrastructures, applications, data, and people. We offer total Security solution aligned tightly with Oracle and committed to the Middle East and African region.”
Cloud computing has the potential to improve the way businesses and IT operate by offering fast, flexible, scalable and cost-efficient methods of operating. Companies, however, need to minimize risks associated with cloud computing by adopting standards and procedures to protect systems data and funds.
iSON Technologies’ Next Generation Intelligent Identity Security Operations Center, which will combine advanced technology to ensure proper security of data and swift identification of threats will allow a complete turn-around for businesses, ensuring implementation of consistent security policies.
