Cloud Hosting Security

Cloud Hosting Security

It’s well known that you get what you pay for and when it comes to website security and web hosting, you may not want to skimp.  That being said, you don’t have to pay for the most expensive option either.  “Cloud Hosting Security” has become one of the most popular choices as it is much like security used for physical data centers but without the overhead costs of maintaining the hardware and facility. When using cloud servers you don’t have to manage physical servers or storage devices because cloud servers use software-based security tools to monitor and protect the data flow in and out of the server.

Is Cloud Hosting Security Better?

Cloud server security is one of the fastest growing hosting options for secure websites and data security.  Cloud computing offers many of the same features and functions and security as traditional physical servers such as data and critical information protection, data leaks and data loss protection.

One thing to consider is that with a cloud hosting, you can operate at scale while still maintaining the highest level of security.  Using a secure cloud hosting service doesn’t change how you manage security for malicious attacks and even adds an extra layer of automated detection services and allows you to manage your entire hosting security, data protection and backup and restore features in a more efficient manner.

Staying Up To Date With Security Compliance

When dealing with data transfers and data storage it is very important to ensure that your cloud hosting security is always up to date which includes certain compliance requirements when dealing with information transfer and especially credit card numbers, health records and much more.  Sozo hosting offers a service to scan your systems for PCI compliance and provide you reports to let you know what areas of your application and systems are out of compliance and need remediation.  We also provide remediation services and consultation on how to build your systems and network infrastructure securely to help you achieve compliance.
