Cloud Data Security FAQs

Securing your most valuable data doesn’t need to be complicated. Read the most frequently asked cloud security questions.

Simply put, cloud security helps your SMB protect business operations, customer data, and company information without slowing down performance, increasing costs, or changing your setup. 

When you move from on-premises to cloud-based security, you get strong security measures and compliance features built-in. It's easy to scale up or down, and you gain better visibility and control over your security. 

Concerned about staffing? Automation streamlines routine security tasks so you can focus more on growing your business. Additionally, AWS Partner Network consultants can help you access new and innovative security features as they become available.

When your SMB manages its own datacenter (or saves data locally) you become responsible for all of its back-end operations, including security patches, performance monitoring, and other time-consuming tasks.

AWS security infrastructure is built to satisfy the highest requirements of the world's leading companies that rely on it. Our customers report 43.4% fewer monthly security incidents, and 69% reduction in unplanned downtime (on average). 

We make extensive investments in our network, storage, and compute power so you have nearly constant secure access to your critical data and applications. This allows you to spend more time with your customers than your IT infrastructure.

There is a growing list of what is available, but most SMBs rely on these features: 

  • Managing employee access and authentication 
  • Automatically monitoring cloud account(s) for malware, viruses, or other issues
  • Enforcing network and application security policies across each device
  • Encrypting confidential data
  • Automatically generating compliance reports

Security is a full-time job and your SMB might not have a dedicated IT staff member to manage it. AWS relieves this operational burden, letting you focus on business-critical work.

At AWS, security is our number one job. With the Shared Responsibility Model, AWS manages the security of its software and hardware, while you control what you upload or run in your account. 

In other words, we focus on the behind-the-scenes management while you still maintain full control over securing your work.

Compliance can a be a difficult topic for SMBs, but AWS offers two benefits small teams appreciate:

  • We offer the ability to automate cloud account monitoring while you’re focusing on high-value tasks.
  • There is no need to manually track changing industry standards. AWS regularly achieves third-party validation for thousands of global compliance requirements as they change.
