Companies, now prefer using the cloud because it’s cheaper to store files, it’s flexible, and it allows users to access it regardless of where they are located. There are four types of clouds, private, public, hybrid, and multi-cloud. Based on the type of cloud, the level of security varies.

Private Cloud and Cloud Protection

A private cloud is a server that allows hardware and software resources that are controlled and addressed by one user. That means that it’s owned by a user and receives the most security since the owner has the ability to customize the infrastructure. However, it comes at a substantial cost because it gives you maximum control over what goes in, what comes out, how it’s protected, and who has access.

Public Clouds and Cloud Protection

Public clouds are on-demand servers for organizations and individuals who can gain access to the cloud through the Internet. This makes them owned by a public cloud service provider. This type of cloud requires the users to rely on themselves and the cloud service provider for protection.

Hybrid Clouds Protection

A hybrid cloud is a combination of computing environments, public clouds and private clouds, and on-prem and cloud data centers. This is because some applications in the IT ecosystem are run on computing, storage, and services in a variety of environments, resulting in the protection heavily relying on third-party applications and you. The user would have to rely on themselves.

Multi-Clouds and Cloud Protection

Multiclouds use two or more clouds to achieve different tasks. This allows the user to complete a task while taking advantage of the benefits and functionality of the different clouds. As the other clouds discussed, the security responsibility is on the user.

Regardless, of the data protection level and who provides the protection, knowing your exposure and your risk level is something that always needs to be known.
