With the work from the home boom, cloud computing has become more critical than ever. Yet, despite the many benefits of the cloud for ease of access, simplicity, and empowering staff, it also comes with a host of cybersecurity risks.
Adapting to the new age of working online, yet staying safe, needs companies to work smarter, not harder. Luckily, there’s a cybersecurity solution waiting in the wings to help- it’s time to meet the Black Cloud.
First introduced as a concept in 2015, the Black Cloud defines itself as “a cloud-native endpoint protection platform (EPP) that provides what teams need to secure endpoints all using a single lightweight agent and an easy to use console.”
In other words, it’s a cloud-based way to keep endpoint access (users, such as staff and remote PCs) secure from intrusion and data loss, without using a solution that’s non-intuitive for less experienced users or which will hog system resources like disk space and RAM. It does this via a.
What would you do if you wanted to protect something vulnerable? You could look at putting a wall around it, right? That’s precisely what the black cloud does; only it’s virtual, created through software. In effect, your router, data, and servers are ‘hidden’ from outside eyes, ensuring they cannot be mined for data or tampered with.
Because this solution uses software, not hardware, to create this safety net, it can easily be scaled and can be used anywhere. The endpoint users don’t have to all be sat in the same building or even on the same continent. This is the beauty of a software-defined perimeter solution: no matter where your employees work from, you can ensure no one can infiltrate past your security precautions and target your data.
This means you can better adapt your company to the new concerns of the digital age by detecting and preventing malicious behavior on endpoint users’ PCs. Also, it removes them as a potential access point to your data and servers. All connections except those specifically authorized are denied.
You can set varying levels of access permissions, ensuring that more senior people can access sensitive resources without leaving them open to all eyes. In effect, a virtual private cloud, in which you set the devices and connections that can access it at all, and what they can access while there.
In return, the ‘weight’ of running the program is minimal on the end user’s PC or device, allowing them to work as normal without complex instructions or impossible to enforce protocols. Nor can access be bypassed and opened up to leave your data vulnerable. Users will connect through a quick program installed on the device and work from there.
As we venture further and further into the digital era, full cloud-based cybersecurity solutions that are easy to implement, accessible, and scalable will become more and more in-demand. Don’t you think it’s time you got a head start on the matter and locked down your precious data today?
Black Cloud technology offers a variety of advantages over traditional endpoint protection platforms. Black Cloud is cloud-native, meaning it was designed specifically for deployment in the cloud. This makes Black Cloud extremely lightweight and efficient, and it can be easily scaled to meet the needs of any organization.
Black Cloud also uses a single agent for all endpoint protection needs, which simplifies deployment and management. Finally, Black Cloud offers an easy-to-use console that makes it easy to see the status of all protected endpoint devices. Black Cloud is an ideal solution for organizations looking for a simple, effective way to protect their endpoint devices.
