When it comes to cloud based systems, the words ‘automation’ and ‘orchestration’ are synonymous.
The term automation refers to the identification of weak areas within the system, detect potential threats and make changes to the system automatically.
There are certain reasons automation of cloud systems is important. Some of these include:
It Helps Make Your Systems Safer
It is the job of a date security analyst to identify if there is any kind of flaw in your system’s security. Even a slightest problem in the system’s security can allow third parties to gain access to your data.
Data security specialists use automation in order to make sure that this does not happen by simulating an attack on your system. These attacks help provide an insight into the security measures that the company has implemented.
It helps determine the extent to which an external party can gain access to the company’s sensitive data. Software these days are regularly updated and there are always new patches available.
However, these patches can have an effect on the security of the system. Keeping this in mind, through automation security analysts can also conduct a patch simulation.
This way they can determine the vulnerabilities that might occur in the system due to the installation of the software patch.
It Helps Ensure Compliance with Company Policies
A firm needs to make sure that it is not just compliant with the regulatory policies, but also with the policies that the company itself has established concerning security.
Through automation, the firm can make sure that the cloud-based system always stays compliant with its security policies in real time. It allows the responsible personnel to keep track of all the benchmarks that the company has set for itself.
It Allows Companies To Make Changes To The System
When it comes to cloud based systems, technology is rapidly changing. Cloud systems are regularly updated. This is where automation comes in.
Making changes to the system manually leaves room for error. There are certain companies, which rely completely on cloud-based systems. For such companies even the slightest mistake with the cloud system can prove to be catastrophic.
