Cloud Security or, more accurately, cloud control refers to a wide range of policies, techniques, technicalities, software, and controls used to protect virtualised IP, resources, applications, services, and associated infrastructure of cloud services. With the proliferation of cloud services the need for cloud security has also increased. This paper will explore some of the features that are common to cloud security.
Cloud security is a system for securing all virtualised resources, networks, devices and application software, irrespective of whether these are created on a physical server, in a cloud, on a hosted service (on-premise) or on a data centre. Cloud security can be defined as the protection of information on virtualised resources, networks, devices, applications and the associated data.

Cloud security involves securing all of the virtualised resources from outside sources, both malicious and non-malicious. It consists of ensuring that the virtualised resources are protected against physical intrusion and third party penetration, as well as providing appropriate access to such resources.
Cloud security is usually considered to be a critical business issue because of the large amounts of money, time, effort, and other resources required to maintain a secure, scalable and robust virtualised infrastructure. The best way to avoid the risk of loss of business data is through the use of a service that performs all of the necessary functions. Some of these include monitoring and reporting, controlling and maintaining security policies and procedures, as well as managing configuration and security configurations.
A cloud security posture management policy controls the physical and logical elements of the virtualised infrastructure. Some of these policies provide the security of the infrastructure that is provided to an individual customer by a third party vendor. Other cloud policies may be designed to control the environment for a specific service.
Cloud security is an important element of any organization's business processes and it should not be overlooked or underestimated. With the continued growth and development of cloud-based services, the need for cloud security will continue to grow.
Security policies used in cloud services are not designed with the enterprise at its head. There are multiple levels of security that must be applied when configuring security policies in a cloud. These security policies may vary depending on the type of cloud service and application.
When the cloud security policy is applied, it provides the infrastructure, services, and users with the necessary infrastructure, resources, and applications to perform the tasks they require without fear of external threats. A cloud security policy must be applied to each virtualised resource, device, service, and application. Each of these items must be monitored for compliance with a cloud security policy that is set by the cloud provider.
An administrator can also set policies for every service within a cloud. A Cloud Security Policy is a set of rules that apply to all of the resources, devices, applications, and services that are provided to an enterprise. A cloud provider may provide security policies to only certain types of services or it may allow all services to run without restrictions. A cloud provider can specify the number of requests an administrator can make and/or the security level of the requests that will be accepted.
