Cloud computing is revolutionising the way organisations store and access data, access applications and deliver IT services.
Concerns persist, however, around the security and privacy risks arising from the shared, on-demand nature of the cloud platforms and service providers. With the growing number of cyber attacks and the lack of direct control, customers increasingly need assurance that cloud monitoring is robust, their data is secure, and their privacy is not being compromised.
Cloud service providers need to demonstrate distinct separation of customer data and reporting, and ensure data segregation within their cloud environments and core infrastructure. Huntsman’s multi tenancy capability supports this.

The challenge, and opportunity for cloud providers
Cloud services are accessible from anywhere and hence can introduce vulnerability. With increasing mobile and remote access, user access to these applications via the Internet is often invisible to the customer’s normal network monitoring solutions.
Cloud service providers require technology platforms that are dependable, agile and easy to operate. Technology needs to support their business model by minimising service delivery costs, simplifying the security management process, and helping them gain the trust of customers.
They want capable platforms that can :
- Give them an advantage over competitors that cannot offer equivalent levels of assurance to security-conscious customers
- Help them to grow revenues by allowing them to provide value-added services in data protection and security monitoring
This is why a growing number of cloud service providers are turning to Tier-3 Huntsman as their core cloud monitoring security solution.
