Traditional companies migrating to the cloud require robust information security mechanisms. Gartner forecast that more than 95% of new digital workloads will continue to be deployed on cloud-native platforms by 2025.
Robust Cloud data security is essential for organizations making rapid digital transformation to the cloud. While a traditional hosting model might be considered more secure, not all organizations are willing to relinquish control of their infrastructure or applications by relying on a cloud provider due to an increased risk of data theft through a cyberattack by an outsider .
Let’s try to understand the crucial part.

Cloud data security involves securing data, whether at rest or in motion, in cloud-based infrastructure, applications, etc. from cyber threats such as data breaches, unauthorized access, DDoS attacks, etc.
This includes the technologies, policies, controls and services to protect cloud-based systems, data, etc.
