Thoughts on Remote Work and the Expanding Cyber Attack Surface
Aired April 16, 2020 “It’s all about making connections with people, finding out what motivates them, finding out how to move the needle forward – leveraging the collective strength of a team.” STS founder and managing principal, Adrian Rich, discusses his early days,...
In the cloud, a multi-tenant environment refers to where there are multiple customers of a cloud vendor, for example AWS, using shared resources. Multitenancy is a crucial component of cloud computing due to potential cost savings but it can introduce challenges related to properly accounting and billing tenants for their resource costs.
Organizations cite "cost savings” as a key driver for moving to the cloud, and oftentimes, they are left disappointed. STS Senior Cloud Engineer, Imran Nayeem, discusses why this is not surprising.
As security needs become more sophisticated and greater threats to system integrity loom, the right secrets management tools are imperative to creating an agile, efficient, and secure environment to store and transmit privileged information. However, the IT professional must incorporate a holistic approach to security, keeping in mind the customer’s need to scale, access, maintain, and customize its security platforms.
With the increase in telework, ensuring the security and resiliency of your cloud infrastructure has never been more important. STS’s Cloud Security practice lead, Tony Lutz, weighs in. Availability One of the cloud’s most touted features is its scalability- it is...
Cloud scale means not treating the cloud as another remote data center. It’s moving from just hosting applications in the cloud — to designing applications and engineering the underlying infrastructure to embrace elasticity and scalability. There are limited cost savings and performance benefits unless these capabilities are built inherently into the infrastructure.
Takeaways from the FedScoop Cloud Data Security Event
Last week Simple Technology Solutions (STS) attended Fedscoop’s Cloud Data Security event sponsored by Cloudera. The event was standing room only – a testament to the topic’s importance and relevance.
Serverless = Simplicity (and speed…and cost savings)!
Below, Simple Technology Solutions (STS) discusses the unique challenges to serverless adoption in enterprise and government. SECURITY: The same security rules and tools don’t apply – there’s no server to check if “the network firewall ports are too open”! There needs to be a conversation between government and industry around control comparability to build confidence that the serverless system is secure.
