Businesses store more data in the cloud than ever before, with the global cloud storage market surpassing $100 billion in 2023. While cloud servers are more secure than traditional servers, they still have their flaws. A Venafi study found that over 80 percent of companies were hit by at least one cloud security incident in 2022. That’s why cloud security companies are defending businesses’ data with a slate of cybersecurity services.

Cloud Cybersecurity

Cloud cybersecurity refers to the tools, data and infrastructure that protect cloud-based products from malicious actors. These cybersecurity protocols work in unison to prevent bot attacks, manage identities and secure all apps within an enterprise’s ecosystem.

Cloud security companies provide tools for detecting breaches, monitoring applications, encrypting data and taking additional measures to prevent cyber attacks. Although these services come with a price tag, the costs are nothing compared to the $9.44 million lost on average during a U.S. data breach.    

Below are cloud security companies empowering businesses to embrace cloud data storage solutions while staying one step ahead of the latest cyber threats.
