It is no brainer that the rapid adoption of cloud computing and SaaS applications have enabled enterprises to foster productivity and efficiency. Though cloud computing turns a new chapter in information technology, a quandary related to security is still disrupting organizations. Unfortunately, enterprises still work on an on-premise security framework. Take the perimeter or network-based security model, for instance. It is useful for an on-premise IT infrastructure where data stays in one place. However, this security framework proves to be ineffective while securing cloud workloads due to the high accessibility that cloud computing offers. Organizations require a sound ‘zero trust’ security approach instead of the traditional ‘trust and control’ model to maintain frictionless cloud-based workflow.
To this end, SecureSky ensures the security of its clients’ cloud applications and infrastructure with a complete portfolio of cloud security solutions. “Being experienced cybersecurity professionals, we understand how ineffective the perimeter-based approach is when it comes to securing cloud environments. As the style of consuming information is changing, it is becoming important to tune the approach to security accordingly,” says Mike Hrabik, CEO of SecureSky. To address this need, we keep clients ahead of these new attack vectors by offering risk protection, threat detection, and an automated response platform that ensures business security while reducing resource requirements. Hrabik perceives visibility as the most valuable weapon for a secure cloud. “We give clients both risk and threat visibility across their entire multi-cloud environment, allowing for automated response and threat defense,” he comments. In addition to providing a normalized view to risk, SecureSky aligns its solutions to CIS Benchmarks, Cloud Security Alliance, NIST CSF, and several additional compliance frameworks. This helps clients gain insight into their compliance position, govern deployments and determine overall risk, and, ultimately, mitigate them.

“We bring in the market a truly integrated solution rather than the traditional bolt-on approach,” Hrabik says.
Apart from providing a technology platform, the company also offers a plethora of cloud services. With its consultancy service, the company helps enterprises migrate to the cloud, adopt SaaS platforms, optimize native security controls within new environments, and implement additional security models to ensure effective protection. Gary Napotnik, Senior VP Marketing of SecureSky, adds, “We also offer managed detection and response services that empower clients to proactively detect and mitigate risks 24/7.”
With the potential to address the diverse needs of both start-ups that look for simple integrated solutions and larger firms that require visibility into the cloud workload and applications, SecureSky has gleaned a legion of clients. In an instance, one of its clients was building a cloud-native application. Despite implementing specific security measures by working with multiple cloud security solutions providers, the client could not gain visibility into their multi-cloud stack. To top it all off, they were following a perimeter-driven network defense methodology. SecureSky provided the client with a native solution ensuring internal visibility as well as external control—enabling cost-effective protect with existing capability.
With many such instances of client success under their sleeves, SecureSky has drawn a specific roadmap for its future expansion. In the coming year, the company is moving into an adaptive response module to better interact with users and smarter risk detection as well as mitigation. “If an enterprise locks down everything, employees will not be able to do their jobs, and without enough control, threats will disrupt everything. So, having the balance is imperative, and we help them achieve it,” concludes Napotnik.
