Keep your data safe with Genpact's cloud security solutions

Secure cloud-enabled transformation using mature cloud security solutions

Data is at the heart of every business, and today, most data is on the cloud. But how do you keep data safe? This is where cloud security comes in. It ensures data, applications, and infrastructure are safe from accidental and deliberate security breaches.

But as the volume of data grows and cloud adoption rises, cybersecurity risks increase too – making cloud security a priority.

Cloud security challenges

From ransomware to phishing attacks, cyberthreats outpace the security capabilities of most enterprises. Here are just some of the reasons why:

  • Rapid transformation: Cloud environments grow quickly, leaving security capabilities lagging. In a rush to respond, enterprises tend to focus on ad hoc security measures instead of proactive digital risk management strategies
  • A lack of clarity: New ways of working, increased reliance on the cloud, and changing employee behaviors make it incredibly difficult to predict threats and build adequate defenses
  • Hybrid and remote working: IT security is no longer as simple as protecting a fixed data center or office network. Hybrid and remote workers make attractive targets for cybercriminals, leaving enterprises more vulnerable to attack
  • Limited board-level support: A lack of understanding and support and a struggle to get buy-in and budget from the boardroom prevents chief information security officers (CISOs) from performing their roles effectively

Thankfully, with the right strategy, technology, and expertise, enterprises can take control of cloud security and data protection. With help, CISOs can proactively address the digital security of cloud-enabled solutions.

  • Cloud security operations: Our managed cloud security operations delivery models are to suited to meet various client requirements, including cloud security operations as-a-service, co-managed, or by hybrid cloud delivery
  • Cloud-managed security operations services: This includes 24/7 monitoring of cloud-native threats, security governance, and compliance monitoring

Cloud security in action

A powerful partnership to protect patient data

The challenge: Stuck with an on-premises model for its hospital apps, app engineers at a leading medical technology company had to travel on-site to install, update, or resolve security issues.

The solution: Genpact oversaw a cloud migration and modernization strategy – with security at its heart.

The impact: The company now enjoys the flexibility and scalability of the cloud and can respond 95% faster to cybersecurity issues – a better experience for app engineers, the hospitals they work with, and the patients the hospitals serve. Learn more.
