Cloud Data Protection

Definition - What does Cloud Data Protection mean?

Cloud data protection is a type of data protection model used to protect stored, static and moving data in the cloud. It is designed to implement optimal data storage, protection and security methodologies.

Techopedia explains Cloud Data Protection

Cloud data protection provides and ensures various services and processes, such as:

  • Integrity: Data is in the same form as its stored version. Data encryption measures are implemented to secure data from illegal editing and corruption.
  • Storage management: The cloud infrastructure must provide a secure and continuously available interface for data access as required. Moreover, logs of each data access, edit and copying event are maintained.
  • Infrastructure security: These are the collective processes, policies and measures that ensure cloud/storage infrastructure security.

An example of cloud data protection is Data Protection as a Service (DPaaS), which provides managed data protection services for stored cloud data.
