Cloud Security

Tried-and-trusted security in the data cloud

Cloud deployments are becoming ever more popular – not least because of their simplicity, speed, and seemingly lower costs. Even with business-critical applications, many companies are considering the cloud as an operational choice. On the other hand, opponents of cloud-based solutions often complain about patchy security and data protection concerns.

The secure access hub can also provide a secure foundation in the cloud. Airlock is designed for use in the cloud and automatically adapts to dynamic environments using DHCP and Cloud-init. Instances can be booted up quickly and simply from official Airlock cloud images, with absolutely no interactive installation required. Furthermore, clusters can be generated from active Airlock nodes by centralising session synchronisation. This allows for effortless scalability.

Cloud versus on-premise deployment

On-premise, in the cloud, private, public or even hybrid? There are plenty of deployment options to choose from and making a decision is not always easy. Whatever you go for, do not compromise on security – choose Airlock. The Airlock licensing model ensures that a migration to the cloud will not entail additional costs.

Comparison of the advantages of cloud and on-premises software:

Advantages in the Cloud
 

  • Lower servicing and implementation costs
     
  • Risk of service interruption due to physical malfunction covered by platform
     
  • Responsibility for infrastructure updates and patches delegated
       
  • Low initial investment costs
     
  • Standardised solutions work well if no custom requirements are set
 

Advantages on-premise
 

  • No hidden costs
     
  • Data retained by you (confidential data, GDPR)
     
  • Independence from dominant cloud providers
     
  • Potentially greater security. Cloud providers are increasingly becoming targets for hacking attacks.
     
  • Direct control of reliability of critical services
     
  • Generally, more flexible with regards to custom requirements and complex environments
