IT Consulting Specialists on Long Island Help Your Business Navigate Cloud Shared Responsibility

Shared Responsibility

IT consulting groups on Long Island can help you understand and manage shared responsibility. Cloud computing involves two parties: you, and the cloud provider.

Accordingly, they’re responsible to keep your information safe, but on the other hand, you’ve also got to manage operations securely enough that they don’t compromise the cloud overall.

Defining Terms

Cloud providers make hard decisions in scenarios where their customers incidentally compromise their cloud array. In order to understand your responsibilities, it’s worthwhile to define tech terms and associated duties. We’ll look at a few terms here:

  • On-Premises Tech
  • IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS
  • Endpoints and Security

On-Premises Tech

IT consulting teams on Long Island help you determine which tech should be on-site, and which tech would better be used on the cloud. Cloud tech can interface with on-premises tech; we’ll explore that concept as regards endpoints shortly.

An on-premises network would be separate from the cloud. First, you want to determine whether an on-site or cloud network is best. Then you want to determine where you’ll interact with the cloud going forward.

IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS

Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, and Software as a Service (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) are primary cloud provisions. IaaS is basically storage. Think of it as renting a digital apartment in a cloud high-rise. PaaS lifts the burden of app level and network control management. SaaS is software used for productivity and hosted from the cloud. All three have security aspects your operation needs to account for.

Endpoints and Security

Managed services providers (MSPs) on Long Island advise you to secure endpoints, and have on-site security in place. Endpoints may be interfaced with via the cloud. A laptop you use to login is an endpoint. It’s important to design protocols that secure endpoints.
