Solving key challenges in cloud environments

  • Cloud security is complex.

    Most cloud tools provide out-of-the-box guidance on which individual security controls to configure for maximum protection, however these controls work as a system and often impact the efficacy of other controls. Talanos can help you understand the dependencies and impacts.

  • Security and usability often conflict.

    Switching on all the recommended controls will increase security but at the cost of blocking legitimate business. Talanos have developed processes and guidance to phase in security controls ensuring minimum business interruption.

  • Keeping the cloud safe is time consuming.

    Cloud vendors are constantly introducing new features and modules which can impact cloud security. Customers trust Talanos to manage the security of their cloud operationally - monitoring the efficacy of implemented controls and making regular improvements.

  • Selecting the wrong controls can prove costly.

    Each cloud vendor security product has associated setup and running costs. Choosing the most effective controls for your money can be a challenge. Leverage Talanos' system integration and security engineering experience to select and deploy the right tools.

Tailored, comprehensive assessments.

Talanos security engineers have deep knowledge of the various public cloud services such as Amazon Webservices, Google Cloud Platform and Azure as well as SaaS security platforms such as Mimecast, M365 and Okta (for example).

We have applied our experience of managing and securing these environments for our customers to develop comprehensive security assessments, tailored to the business objectives and risk appetite of the organisation.

Implementing the controls across the various categories shows a measurable reduction in risk over time and an overall increase in security maturity.

Delivering secure cloud blueprints and a roadmap to achieve your targets.

Talanos appreciate that reaching your target operating model in the cloud is a journey. Although convenient and easy to configure, cloud environments need to be carefully designed and closely monitored to ensure that resources are effectively managed so as not to incur unnecessary expense. Wasted expenditure scales as quickly as you do, when spent in the cloud.

Selecting the most effective controls and tools available in the cloud to deliver the maximum ROI requires a deep understanding of the technical environment and the organisations risks. Talanos work closely with our customers to tailor their cloud security blueprints to deliver the most value at the lowest possible license cost.
