Safeguarding datacentres and cloud against security threats

The growth in technological advancements has led to a rise in security threats.

Dubai,United Arab Emirates: Technology has become ubiquitous, making data an organization’s most valuable asset. Datacentres hold a significant amount of data and applications in every business and across all industries. In today’s IT ecosystem, there has been a drastic change the way datacentres are designed, and implemented.

The growth in technological advancements has led to a rise in security threats. Securing the datacentres is of paramount importance; going beyond securing the physical perimeter of the datacentres, organizations need to also focus on the online threats prevalent. Cyber-attacks continue to grow each year; data breaches across the globe have cost organizations dearly – with not just a loss of reputation, but more importantly, loss of its consumers’ data leading to severe financial consequences.

In safeguarding a datacentre, IT security heads need to mitigate threats such as DDoS attacks, web application attacks, SSL-induced security blind spots, DNS infrastructure and weak authentication. According to an industry report, it is estimated that the average total cost of a data breach is expected to be $3.62 million. With data rapidly moving to the cloud, other industry reports indicate the cloud security market is expected to reach $12billion in 2024.This growth can be attributed to the heavy usage of cloud services for data storage, which is led by the flexibility and cost savings that it offers.

To ensure readiness in the wake of a cyber-attack, many organizations across the world are resorting to using a combination of on-and off-site backup strategies. Many experts also advise deploying Application Delivery Controllers (ADC) in the datacentre that not only delivers optimal performance but also helps in blocking attacks and preventing unauthorized access to applications. Market reports suggest the ADC market is expected to reach approximately $4.191 billion by 2023.

At the Future Datacentres and Cloud Infrastructure Summit, being held on 8-9 April 2019 at the Grand Habtoor Resort, Dubai, industry experts will share insights on how important it is to design datacentres with cyber security prevention right from the planning stages, the rise of the cloud security market and the instrumental role that AI plays in securing datacentres against physical and cyber threats.

The Future Datacentres and Cloud Infrastructure Summit is a unique event – the first of its kind event taking place in this region to address the rapid cloud infrastructure and datacentres growth. Subject matter experts will come together to address the overall challenges faced, and share trends and opportunities to be capitalized.
