Cloud computing provides a viable alternative for traditional on-premise infrastructure to deliver scalable information technology (IT) services. Cloud accelerates application modernization and transformation and lowers life-cycle costs, while helping organizations become advanced and innovative. While many enterprises continue to have reservations about cloud due to security concerns, they acknowledge the potential cost savings and technical benefits that the technology offers. Cloud solution providers like Amazon are addressing the security issues in a shared cloud infrastructure by employing industrystandard cybersecurity protection tools and offering monitoring capabilities to secure customer data.
Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon’s public cloud infrastructure platform, offers a web application firewall that monitors outgoing and inbound traffic, blocking anything that does not adhere to guidelines. AWS also leverages artificial intelligence to automate threat monitoring and manage cloud environments. Amazon’s cloud is dominating the industry with 33 percent market share during Q1 of 2018, and comprises more than 70 services that include computing, storage, networking, database, analytics, and application services. AWS is playing a major role in helping reduce cloud security concerns and enabling enterprises to gradually divest from their data centers and move applications and workloads to the cloud.
