Project #46535 - business data communications

Choose TWO of the following cloud services categories: SaaS, IaaS, PaaS. Do some Internet research that focuses the security issues associated with the selected cloud service categories. Summarize the major security risks associated with the cloud service category and identify mechanisms that can be used to address these risks. (This question is asking for a discussion, not simply a list of issues.)

This question was assigned to me and one other person in the group so it will be sumple and half the work. I will post below what they have done on the question so far so you can get an idea of what you will have to do differently

(this is what my partner posted so far for his portion of the question)

 

By 2005, companies realized that the economy of scale and high-speed internet connections would allow them to offer computation and data storage services now known as cloud computing that were less expensive than the same services implemented by a system where each user had their own computer according to the textbook. Cloud computing is often referred to as a stack of services containing three categories; Software as a Service (SAAS), Platform as a Service (PAAS), and Infrastructure as a Service. These three categories are all very important and key aspects of cloud computing.

    Software as a Service (SAAS) are applications that are designed for end-users, delivered over the web. SAAS is a very valuable tool and it was introduced to the business world with Salesforce Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool. That along with email, financial management, and customer service all have received good uptake with SAAS.

    Although SAAS is very popular in the business world and a key aspect of cloud computing, it does have a couple security risks associated with it. Security related issues are the number one reason preventing firms from adopting SAAS, according to Liz Herbert. The two main security risks associated with SAAS that I found were identity management in the cloud, and the ease of accessibility. “Managing identities and access control for enterprise applications remains one of the greatest challenges facing IT today”, according to the research from the Cloud Security Alliance. At this time, it is very difficult to come up with ways to prevent identity theft as cloud computing is at an early stage, but the cloud providers need to make sure everything is as secure as possible. With technology innovation rapidly growing and evolving, it is making it easier for people to access their business applications anywhere at anytime. This is a perk of SAAS, but with the wide area of accessing these business applications it is tough for cloud servicing companies to secure all endpoints at all times. A way to possibly secure this vast array of access points from hackers could be for the customer to come to an agreement with the cloud provider where they can only access their business applications from certain IP addresses and require remote users to go through a VPN according to Jon Brodkin.

Need it completed by Friday or Saturday afternoon. Thanks.
