Importance of Data Security in B2B, why?


In a B2B type business, the most important thing a company needs to ensure for their client is the security of the data they provide to them. For a firm data is a valuable asset that generates, acquires, saves, and exchanges for any company. Protecting it from internal or external corruption and illegal access protects a company from financial loss, reputational harm, consumer trust degradation, and brand erosion. Furthermore, regulations for securing data, imposed by the government and the industry, make it critical for a company to achieve and maintain compliance wherever business it does.

What Is Data Security?


Data security is the process of safeguarding digital information throughout its entire life cycle to protect it from corruption, theft, or unauthorized access. It covers everything—hardware, software, storage devices, and user devices; access and administrative controls; and organizations’ policies and procedures.

Data security uses tools and technologies that enhance the visibility of a company's data and how it is being used. These tools can protect data through processes like data masking, encryption, and redaction of sensitive information. The process also helps organizations streamline their auditing procedures and comply with increasingly stringent data protection regulations.

A robust data security management and strategy process enable an organization to protect its information against cyberattacks. It also helps them minimize the risk of human error and insider threats, which continue to be the cause of many data breaches.

How does SOTAOG ensure its client's Data Security?


SOTAOG understands the issue of the clients; therefore we ensure the data security at the top level using the AWS cloud platform, which provides the latest in security.

Let us consider an example of a company that uses our solution. We receive our client data from the sensor directly, the process is pretty simple, we connect the sensor to a Virtual Private Network (VPN), a technology that creates a safe and encrypted connection over a less secure network, such as the internet then the sensor data is pushed to the controller box which in turn pushes this data to the cloud after getting encrypted. Each of the sensor data has a unique IP address, we use that IP to hit the sensor data and then de-encrypt that data to analyze and provide a better view of the ongoing processes on our application.

What is Cloud Computing?


Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT resources over the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. That means that instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data centers or servers, you can access technology services such as computing power, storage, and databases, on an as-needed basis from a cloud provider.

AWS, but what it is?


Now that we know what cloud computing is, let's understand AWS. AWS is the world's most comprehensive and widely adopted cloud platform, with the broadest and deepest set of services. Millions of customers trust AWS to power their infrastructure and applications. Startups and organizations of every type and size are using AWS services to experiment, innovate faster, lower costs, and become more agile.
