SSL/TLS encryption is a protocol used to encrypt data sent over the internet. This protocol encrypts data in transit between your computer and the cloud service provider’s servers, making it difficult for attackers to intercept and read the data.
IPSec encryption is a protocol used to encrypt data sent over a network. This protocol is commonly used to establish secure connections between remote offices and data centers. By using IPSec encryption, you can ensure that data transmitted over the network is protected from unauthorized access or theft.
Implement Multi-Factor Authentication
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) requires users to log in with more than just a username and password – usually a combination of something they know (like a password) plus something they have (like their phone). Implementing MFA can help protect against unauthorized access by providing an additional layer of authentication for users attempting to gain access to your systems or accounts.
There are several different types of MFA, including:
SMS-based authentication: Users receive a one-time code via text message to enter as part of the login process.
Hardware token-based authentication: Users receive a physical device (like a USB key) that generates a one-time code that must be entered as part of the login process.
Mobile app-based authentication: Users download a mobile app that generates a one-time code that must be entered as part of the login process.
Implement Access Controls
Lastly, it’s important to implement access controls for user accounts so that only authorized users have access to sensitive information stored in the cloud. Contact us today to get started.
