5 Security Features of the flexis Cloud Platform
Jessie MacAlpine - June 15, 2023
Cloud computing is going to be an integral part of digital transformation in all industries, allowing real-time data analytics to inform decision making at all levels. So, what’s holding companies back from a full transition to the cloud? Unfortunately, many companies remain hesitant to adopt cloud computing due to security concerns. How safe can sensitive data and workloads be in the cloud? Plus, beyond security concerns, companies also need to contend with ever-changing government regulations on where and how data can be stored in the cloud.
Although the cloud can seem daunting, thankfully most of these concerns have been addressed by cloud platforms. Security is integrated into every level of the computing process, ensuring robust surveillance and storage of critical data stores, while complying with all local regulations. This is especially true for the flexis cloud platform, which prioritizes security at every step of the cloud deployment and maintenance process.
5 Ways Security is Integrated into the flexis Cloud Platform
1. Only Access What is Necessary
The flexis platform utilizes the “least required privileges” principle, where users can only access what they need within a solution. To facilitate this process, flexis uses role-based accounts to access different sections of the cloud. For example, a “planner” role can be created that can only see certain data necessary for decision making. Additionally, multi-factor authentication is required for all access accounts.
2. Encryption at All Levels
Encryption is prioritized at all levels of cloud-based solutions and data is encrypted both in transfer and at rest. Companies can then decide whether the keys are managed internally or by the flexis cloud team, whether the solution is deployed on a public or private cloud instance. As well, if a company prefers to utilize their own security measures on a private cloud, they can choose to deploy the flexis solution on their existing system.
3. Automated Threat Detection
Starting right from the initial build time, flexis cloud solutions are constantly monitored for threats to security. When this automatic monitoring identifies a threat, an alert is generated to notify the security team, whether managed internally or by flexis. The solutions also use fully automated updates to ensure companies take advantage of the latest in cybersecurity.
4. Logical Separation of Services
Within the platform, services are also isolated into containers to maximize security. For example, the database server cannot access the application server to help enhance security and reduce vulnerabilities within the platform.
5. Compliance with Regulations
Globally, governments have introduced regulations for cloud computing to protect data safety and security. flexis is fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe and complies with ISO/IEC industry standards for cloud computing. Currently, the flexis platform provides its services on Microsoft Azure, which offers the most compliance documents of any of the major cloud companies and ensures data can be housed in local data centers (i.e. Germany in Europe).
Take Advantage of Cloud Computing, Without Worrying About Security
flexis prioritizes security at all levels in its cloud platform. Through its partnership with Microsoft Azure, flexis offers industry-leading security, regulation compliance, and data control. flexis solutions allow companies to utilize real-time data analytics without sacrificing on safety and security of data and company operations.
