Multi-tenant Cloud Architecture
Today organizations have been able to recognize over the years the benefits of implementing a Cloud-based SIEM Service in terms of scalability, cost, and security. However, before operating in the cloud, you should know what architecture you need to adopt to protect your business and your customers’ data. Intending to help you implement a cost-effective SaaS SIEM Service, we share the advantages of multi-tenant over a single-tenant cloud architecture.
What Is Single-tenant And Multi-tenant Cloud Architecture?
A single-tenant cloud computing environment is dedicated to an individual customer (company). This means that each single-tenant architecture will have one independent database and instance of the software per customer. Essentially, in a single-tenant, the supporting infrastructure serves a single customer and is not shared any resources.
A multi-tenant architecture is an environment that shares a single instance of the software, a database, and its supporting infrastructure with multiple customers (companies). However, each customer’s data is isolated and invisible to other tenants.
Multi-tenant vs. Single-tenant Cloud SIEM Architecture
Single-tenant environments are designed for companies who want to keep their data secure and private. Usually, this model is more popular among startups and small businesses since they don’t have to share their data with other companies. However, it’s an option that involves spending so much more money.
On the other hand, when companies share a single environment in a multi-tenant architecture, it allows SaaS SIEM vendors to generate savings and transfer them to the platform cost. If you as an organization share a multi-tenant-hosted solution, you can reduce the cost associated with setup, maintenance, and updates. You don’t need to pay costly maintenance fees to keep your SIEM platform up to date. Remember that vendors roll out new features and updates constantly. Therefore, by deploying a SaaS SIEM subscription, you can lower your cybersecurity budget cost.
People think using a multi-tenant cloud architecture (with companies not associated with yours) can reduce security control. However, UTMStack adopts the following good cybersecurity practices to protect your environment within multi-tenant architecture:
- Hosting companies in a single server contained on secure hardware handled by a limited number of people.
- Isolating each company’s data and remaining it invisible to other tenants.
- Enable secure connexion through independently private ports for each company to access the platform.
