Managing your IT infrastructure can be a challenge. Server hardware, cloud applications, mobile devices - working with them as an integrated whole can be difficult work. This can become even more complicated if you inevitably have legacy software running as well. However, there are solutions available that can map your full IT infrastructure to the cloud, allowing you to monitor everything from a single dashboard. This can display everything from the different OS, software versions, and storage use, as well as provide malware protection and even monitor energy consumption. More importantly, a good IMS solution will allow you to pinpoint bottlenecks and network problems, allowing you to zoom into any code causing errors, allowing you to identify workarounds and solutions. Usually alerts can also be provided in the event of any technical failure, allowing you to react quickly via push notifications, SMS, email, or even automated calls.

Data Security in the Cloud Best Practices

Article | April 8, 2020

Data security in the cloud best practices include: understanding and implementing security fundamentals, securing cloud infrastructure along the shared responsibility model, encrypting data in the cloud, and ensuring compliance with applicable regulations.
