SaaS/IaaS/PaaS Security

Software as a Service (SaaS): SaaS provides software services on needs or contract basis on cloud. SaaS enables deployment of software applications as a service over internet. Platform as a Service (PaaS): PaaS provides independent software platforms for executing various applications on a cloud platform. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): IaaS provides outsourced elements of infrastructure such as virtualization, storage, networking, and load balancers to a cloud service like Microsoft. It is a form of cloud computing that provides virtualized computing resources over the Internet.

In all these cloud models, data can be accessed by unauthorised internal employees, as well as external hackers. Internal employees may be able to access data intentionally or accidently. Using a range of hacking techniques, external hackers gain access to databases in cloud environments. Malicious programs can be embedded in a normal command and passed to clouds and executed as valid instances. In order to implement better security mechanisms to protect a cloud environment, it is necessary to identify the possible cloud threats.

How to choose a best cloud provider :

To choose the right cloud service provider, organisations must acknowledge the following parameters:

  • Business Considerations: The cloud vendor must be technically advanced and also be able to understand the specific business needs of the client
  • Data Security and Safety: Working with a trusted cloud service provider is the key to managing the various security, compliance and regulatory issues that arise within the cloud.
  • Service Level Considerations: When determining the service level of a cloud vendor, there are essentially three factors to be considered, availability, performance and reliability.
  • Pricing Structure and Commercials: The pricing offered by a vendor may depend upon a number of factors like security level, storage space and so on. In any case, the pricing must be flexible and must not carry any hidden costs.
  • Hosting Considerations: Organisations must pick the cloud vendor based on their hosting expertise and ensure that it matches with their cloud requirements.
  • Geographical Considerations: Compliance and regulatory demands for data changes with different geographic locations. Your cloud service provider must adhere to these changes and protect data in any given location.
  • Ethical and Legal Considerations: Cloud computing comes with significant ethical and legal considerations, and organisations must acknowledge them to have a smooth relationship with the service provider and to ensure that there is no financial loss in the form of legal penalties.
  • Scalability and Flexibility: The cloud service provider must be able to scale up to accommodate the additional storage requirements and add new users into the system with no difficulty.
