Multitenancy and cloud data: an important step for ISO certifications

Data maze for ISO

Did you know that to obtain ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certifications, a cloud provider must meet certain security standards in terms of procedures and tools?

Especially if it is a new certification such as Our, in fact, it is customary to undertake a path that reviews and reformulates internal systems and, at times, the offer itself. And that's exactly what we've done at CloudFire over the past few months.

The evolution of Drive4Business, now dedicated

As we all know, evolution is the driving force in sectors that deal with technology, and, in recent times, in particular in the field of security and data protection, there have been great improvements. As a result, the regulations that must regulate a world in which cyber threats are becoming increasingly aggressive and evolved have adapted.

At CloudFire, we have always had a mission to provide the greatest possible security and data protection. Precisely for this reason, we decided to implement extremely advanced cybersecurity solutions and we have achieved the ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certifications.

During the certification process, we separated and analyzed in every small detail our services for identify potential areas for improvement in order to ensure compliance with the highest quality standards.

We have identified an area, crucial for us, on which to apply more stringent management procedures. In particular, we refer to the concept of Multitenancy and on the possibility of CloudFire being able to reads and manage the data contained within the services themselves.

For clarity, with Multitenant means a model that, used in a context of cloud computing and software services, describes the sharing of the same instances, resources or environments for a service from multiple customers or Tenant. In other words, a multitenant application is designed to host the data and operations of multiple users or organizations, while maintaining the logical separation between them. To give you a concrete example, Cortex , being a multitenant platform, allows each partner to add and manage their customers and their respective data, keeping each environment isolated and accessible with specific credentials.

Linked to the concept of multitenancy, it is essential to know who has access to data in what way and to what extent.

In this regard, we have identified in the Drive4Business service, in multitenant mode, some critical issues with certain functionalities contrary to the confidentiality criteria established by us. Precisely for this reason, we decided to review the Drive4Business offer as you have always known it, transforming it into a service dedicated to customers.

Observing and complying with the standards we had set for ourselves, in fact, we decided to develop a solution. dedicated to single tenant to continue to provide a cloud or hybrid enterprise share service that at the same time would ensure a separate instance of the service for each customer. In this way, access to data is exclusive and circumscribed, thus ensuring an extremely high level of security and control.

Data security is our priority

Data security is a top priority for us at Cloudfire, and our decision to renew Drive4Business reflects just that commitment. We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers a dedicated single-tenant solution that guarantees maximum security and compliance.
