Can Telematics Be A Path To Securing The Cloud?

Can Telematics Be A Path To Securing The Cloud?

There are various terminologies that describe the use of Wi-fi, signals and data sensors to help send a message securely and fast. Telematics is one of these and it deploys its reach in three patterns: from one device to another, from a device to a person or from the source to the cloud. The latter form of interaction is important because it implies that it is possible to trace a vehicle, for which telematics is best known for, within a cloud computing environment. One does not have to install expensive equipment to facilitate this tracking, for most of the software is available at a server somewhere.

This begs the question of whether the technology in question can help to resolve the security issues in cloud computing. The answer is right, especially from the fact that the technology primarily concerns the import of staying in a safe environment when doing any activity whether on a computer or inside a vehicle.

Another reason why the technology can be the right one for enhancing cloud security is because it is real-time and micro in nature. It is micro because it can deploy on weak signals that are below 4G connectivity levels and yet still pass an emergency log from the source to the recipient. Secondly, it is real-time since it endorses signal connections between various network layers. This means that one will never lose track of a document on the web because the system maps the communication path, for example from one email to another, until it reaches the addressee.

Telematics can also be a safe solution for working on the Internet, safely, because besides being real-time in its observational scope, it can operate seamlessly across various devices. It is particularly prominent in cell phones where it provides instantaneous messages through a line. It also uses fast hands-free technologies like Bluetooth to enhance data acquisition. In the latter facilitation, it can play a diagnostic role where it increases the assessment of what a certain network is doing or what lies ahead for the driver in case of being on the road.

Just like the technology uses GPS to alert car owners about the traffic conditions, like when to apply emergency brakes and such, it can also help to notify database owners of impending cyber attacks. This can be a breakthrough that can change the face of Internet security as a whole, but it is still undergoing experimentation. What it can help with at the moment, is to enhance the strength of networks that form an infrastructure such as that inside a private cloud.

The technological scope of telematics is still evolving and may one day infiltrate the cloud computing sector with a lot of significance. This can be a worthwhile gain, especially considering the fact that security remains the most cited issue by Information Technology analysts as threatening the integrity of the cloud.
