How Managed Services in San Antonio Can Help Prevent Cloud Hacking

 

managed services San AntonioWhen it comes to managed services in San Antonio, you can find the kind of quality cloud security you need. You’re going to generally find better solutions through cloud providers than you can source internally. There are several reasons for this, one being that professionals in the cloud make cloud security a core prerogative and have greater resources than internal businesses using their services can. Still, there are things you can do on your end to ensure the best possible cloud security:

Increase Password Protection/Renewal Strategy

Managed services providers in San Antonio offer a number of suggestions when it comes to passwords. For one, you want to renew your passwords on a monthly basis at the very least. If you can do this feasibly on a weekly basis, that makes sense. Your passwords to access the cloud need to be complicated, they can’t be guessable. They should be derived via algorithm and reset on a regular basis. Management through an MSP makes this the most secure and easy to handle.

API (Application Programming Interface) Protection: Bounties

API often represents a backdoor for hackers due to customization, and dangling code which gives them an easy entry— well, relatively. Again, working with the right MSP can help you tie up these loose ends. Google offers bounties for programmers who can find vulnerable portions of code. You might do the same, depending on the size of your business, and the involved cloud apps.

Backing Up to Multiple Clouds

Use more than one cloud. This is recommendable for larger businesses with a lot of important data. Even beyond hacking, there could be an issue with your primary cloud provider. If you’re backing up to two separate clouds, you’ve got comprehensive positively redundant protection.
