Gravity Of Real-Time Security Issue In Today’s Cloud Environment

Gravity of Real-Time Security Issue in Today’s Cloud Environment

The security has always been the core issue of the information technology since the advent of the concept of e-commerce and electronic transactions. There are the hundreds of thousands of security related threats that our networks encounter daily. If we analyzed the so-called big data, we would be astonished that billions of security events take place in our network elements daily. In fact, there are more than one billion events recorded just in a single Firewall network element.

Is existing network security capable of dealing with the information in real time? This is a crucial question that needs to be studied seriously to assess the power of our security mechanisms in both isolated and cloud based networks. The security concerns in cloud services have been one of the major issues since cloud services were invented. Even though our existing network security tools are well capable of handling the known issues till today, they are not as efficient to process, evaluate, and show the real time gravity of the events that are taking place in the background of the network.

Both the research on big data and the root cause analysis of the event related to the security in cloud services have shown that the average time for more than 85 percent of the hackers to damage or steal the data on your network is less than half an hour. This time is very short in terms of the analysis and finding of the results from the events that are happening in the background. This means our present analytic tools are not capable of handling these security issues so quickly.

Several companies are working to handle the intensity of the security problem in cloud networks in real time. Real-time security analytics and other such tools developed by different companies are proving to be effective weapons against these kind of serious and real-time security issues of the networks.

As we know, the cloud services like SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and other models have almost put every type of data into the cloud. This means the issues pertaining to security and integrity of valuable data in the cloud are increasing at a very quick pace. And every time, the hackers are using the latest and most innovative methods for their malicious activities in the Internet cloud.

Thus, the gravity of the security issues in real time remains very high in the modern cloud environment of business, at least for now.
