iSON Technologies, Oracle, advocate cloud computing security

iSON Technologies, a leading technology services in Africa and Oracle’s platinum partner urge organizations to adopt Cloud Computing Security for business transformation. The companies made the call at an event themed: ‘Modernizing Security on the Cloud’, held recently.

The event highlighted the need for organizations to implement and manage consistent security policies across hybrid data centers and explained that data security has become an increasing concern now that cloud storage has become more common. The event also brought to the fore issues such as the increasing contemporary threats, vulnerabilities and fraudulent activities in the cloud as well as ways to ensure an organization keeps its data safe on the cloud.

Commenting on the need for organisations to guard against threats, vulnerabilities and fraud events in the cloud, Hamilton Iyoha Pre Sales Consultant IT Security at Oracle, CISM said, ‘’ With each passing day, organizations are being exposed to an ever-growing list of threats, configuration oversights, vulnerabilities and fraud events. Visibility to risks and real-time attacks, and the ability to rapidly respond will be among your key success metrics in 2018.

In order to contain these threats and have a visibility into the security posture of your applications across multiple cloud platform and on-premise, you need an Identity Centric and intelligent Security Operation Center (Identity SOC). Oracle is proud to introduce to you the Industry’s first identity-centric framework for security operation centers known as Oracle Identity SOC.

Sharook Hussain, Vice President Sales & Bus Dev. iSON, ME & Africa, further outlined the importance of cloud security saying “Enterprises today are exposed to a growing volume of threats, both in scale and sophistication, with increasing regulatory norms being enforced upon them.

It is essential for companies to ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability of vital information and data through a robust information security framework. iSON’s Cyber Security Services follow a holistic approach in responding to multi-dimensional cyber security risks and providing total visibility and intelligence on new developments within business infrastructures, applications, data and people. We offer total Security solution aligned tightly with Oracle and committed to the Middle East and African region.”

Cloud computing has the potential to improve the way businesses and IT operate by offering fast, flexible, scalable and cost efficient methods of operating. Companies however need to minimize risks associated with cloud computing by adopting standards and procedures to protect systems data and funds.

iSON Technologies’ Next Generation Intelligent Identity Security Operations Center, which will combine advanced technology to ensure proper security of data and swift identification of threats will allow a complete turn-around for businesses, ensuring implementation of consistent security policies.
