Cloud security is the technology and best practices designed to ensure information and data are protected within a business’s environment. It’s a basic part of any IT infrastructure strategy that utilises the cloud. Cloud security guarantees data privacy and compliance around data stored in the cloud.
Robust cloud security is vital for organisations making the change to the cloud. Security threats are continually developing and getting more complex, so cloud computing is no less at risk than an on-premises environment. Because of this, it’s fundamental to work with a cloud supplier that offers top-tier security customised for your infrastructure.
We understand that every organisation is different, and Cheeky Munkey aims to provide protection for all types of environment. We can assist organisations wanting to implement security policies and ensure that their cloud security adheres to compliance and legal requirements, such as ISO27001, Cyber Essentials and GDPR regulations.
IT security has never been as significant as it is today. The threat landscape is wider than ever before. With new and more dangerous malware created daily, businesses need to take every precaution to protect themselves from external as well as internal threats.
The Cheeky Munkey team focuses on an array of IT security services in London and the home counties. With 20 years’ experience in defining and implementing IT security strategies, Cheeky Munkey is an IT partner that you can trust to deal with such crucial concerns on your behalf. We specialise in the dangers and security issues faced by small and medium-sized organisations today.
Cheeky Munkey provides reliable and secure security solutions to protect cloud-based environments, ensuring integrity in any solutions that we provide for clients. As the first layer, it’s important to have the right security products in place on the device itself. At the very least, clients need to have a secure and managed antivirus solution, but preferably with encryption, anti-spam and managed anti-malware to help to mitigate the risk of the overall environment.
Other cloud security solutions we recommend implementing include multi-factor authentication. MFA uses multiple factors like Knowledge Factors, Possession Factors, and Inherence Factors to verify the identity of people. In most cases, once you have entered your password, it will ask you to verify a 6-digit code sent to your mobile. This is considerably more secure than single-factor authentication.
Patch management is the process of distributing and applying updates to software and applications that are susceptible to cyber-attacks, helping your organisation reduce its security risk. Our Cheeky Munkey agent pushes patch updates on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday across all our clients’ infrastructure.
We take the time to get to know your business, your systems and your requirements. Once we have a solid understanding of your company, we can advise on the best cloud security solutions for you. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach with us.
We’ll recommend the measures you need in place to protect your business. And we’ll put them in priority order, so you can implement the most pressing solutions first, followed by less urgent ones. Not only does this approach address the most vital requirements first, but it also allows you to budget more effectively.
Our IT security bundles include everything from ongoing patch management and antivirus measures, to email backup and security training for your employees. Your cloud data will be protected from every angle.
With years of experience in cloud security, we’ve seen and dealt with almost every kind of security threat out there. But far from becoming complacent, we keep right up to date with the latest trends – because we know that cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving to dodge security measures.
It’s this experience – and our commitment to continual learning – that means we deal with most IT issues in as little as 10 minutes.
