Does Your Cloud Security Meet the Standard?

“IBM estimates that the average Cost of a Data Breach to an Australian organisation is $290 million or $157 per data unit.” 1

Whether a Public, Private or a Hybrid cloud solution, cloud environments are only as secure as they have been configured. In nearly all cases, cyber security breaches happen due to misconfiguration, inappropriate access controls or mismanagement by third party providers.

Satalyst takes a Security First approach to all cloud solutions.  Data loss can occur in many ways, from deliberate external attacks to accidental sharing of information and files over email. Providing security reviews and audits, penetration testing, security monitoring, security remediation and risk mitigation practices, Satalyst will ensure that however you use the cloud, it will be as secure as possible.

“66% of SMBs would either go out of business completely or be forced to shut down for at least a day following a cyber breach.” 2  From Office and Microsoft 365 environments through to complex Azure and hybrid cloud environments, Satalyst’s security team has significant proven experience securing and hardening networks and cloud environments.
