  2. The foremost advantage is that a major portion of security is taken care of by the cloud provider.

    This includes the physical security of data center premises, security of hardware, and security of ‘infrastructure’ part of the software, such as OS, Databases, etc., and network perimeter security.

    However, the security of data and applications and other software that we host on the cloud is still the responsibility of ours.

    Here are some tips that will help you to make the cloud experience risk-free:

    1. Physical security of server – Who has to access and their logs, what they did etc
    2. Firewall, Antivirus. Build the DMZ mechanism to protect the data in the server
    3. Regular backups with Business continuity plans (BCP)
    4. Load Balancing features in case the data load is heavy
    5. Security built at Application Layers
    6. Data encryption logic in the application for sensitive data.
