Three service models are commonly implemented in the cloud: software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS).
For any organization that uses servers or cloud storage, there is a security policy domain established for security and control and needs to be carefully checked by experienced people to ensure that all possible risks are identified.
At Cloudaeon, we have experience with cloud-based auditing. We ensure that our customers understand all aspects of security implemented by the control environment that protects their data in the cloud. During our cloud audit, we specifically tested all areas where industry best practices were followed to ensure that risks were identified so they could be recovered. This improves the security position and complies with the compliance rules that the auditor wants to consider “evidence” during the audit.
If our customers have special requirements that must be met based on regulatory authorities, Cloudaeon can help.

With cloud computing, data is separated from infrastructure, and there are many operational and control factors that need to be carefully considered. This operational difference in the cloud creates a number of unique security and privacy issues that directly impact your company’s risk management practices. There are also many new e-discovery compliances, audit and legal issues related to the cloud. If you are not sure how to test the security of your cloud, have experienced Cloudaeon employees supporting your company’s cloud audit. We have extensive experience with cloud-based audits.
