Revolutionizing Cloud Security

Employees are the lifeblood of a business. They access, store, process, transfer and work on a business’ valuable information. While essential, they are human and fallible. They are prone to mistakes, are opportunistic and in certain circumstances spiteful. These traits amongst many others lead to security breaches, which cost businesses dearly. Security breaches cause fines, reputation damage, financial loss and even bankruptcy. 95% of business owners are worried about their employees. Public cloud services like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud and SaaS Services like Salesforce spend vast sums of money to ensure their security is airtight, however, this is all for naught when it comes to malicious or negligent employees. The shared responsibility model employed by cloud services ensures that cloud services are not responsible for a business’ employees’ actions. The majority of businesses using the cloud cannot get the employee security, they desperately need and want. Existing employee security tool sets cater for corporate enterprises requiring security experts to operate them. Businesses do not have the budget to hire security experts which are in short supply and command high salaries. This leaves the 75% of businesses relying exclusively on cloud services’ security exposed to a massive security gap. Business need employee security, businesses want employee security, business cannot afford security because they do not have the budget to hire security experts.

OcuCloud’s veteran team of security professional have solved this pain point and addressed the deepest security challenges such as the rapidly changing remote workforce, the severe cyber security skill shortage, shadow IT, Bring Your Own Device.

OcuCloud is reshaping the future of cloud security making security / compliance easy for small, medium, corporate enterprises. OcuCloud does all the heavy lifting (preventing security breaches without security experts), reduces incident response rates (limiting the damage caused by a potential incident) and maintains employee productivity (no burdensome security restrictions).
