What Is Huawei Cloud infrastructure security?
Infrastructure security is a core component of Huawei Cloud's multi-dimensional, full-stack cloud security system. We have enhanced the security and compliance of our data centers, networks, and other infrastructure based on industry best practices, so that you can migrate services to the cloud, stay focused on your business, and leave the security to us.
Huawei Cloud is deployed in multiple regions and availability zones (AZs) around the world. You can check the services available at each site on the Huawei Cloud home page. Our data centers are located in geographically secure locations. We take appropriate access control, monitoring, and service continuity assurance measures to improve the security and reliability of Huawei Cloud infrastructure. Visit the Data Center page for more details.
We divide and isolate security zones and network planes in compliance with ITU-T E.408 standards and industry best practices.
For more information about the security design and practices of Huawei Cloud infrastructure, see Huawei Cloud Security White Paper.
How does Huawei Cloud secure my data on the cloud?
We consider data asset protection as the core of our security policies. Huawei Cloud complies with industry-leading standards on data security lifecycle management and adopts excellent technologies, practices, and processes for identity authentication, permissions management, access control, data isolation, transmission security, storage security, data deletion, and physical device destruction. You can find more information on these practices in the Huawei Cloud Data Security White Paper.
You own all the content data generated when you use services on Huawei Cloud, and have full control over the data. You are responsible for configuring security measures for specific data and ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, availability, and data access identity authentication and authorization. For example, if you use Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Data Encryption Workshop (DEW), you are responsible for keeping your accounts, passwords, and keys safe, and shall comply with industry best practices in configuring, updating, and resetting passwords and keys. You can check out more data security products under Huawei Cloud's [Security & Compliance] category.
Huawei Cloud will never access your content data without your express authorization. We comply with all applicable laws and regulations, regularly update services to meet internal and external compliance requirements, evaluate security status based on industry standards, and share our compliance practices to maintain transparency.
Does Huawei Cloud Transfer My Data to Other Regions or Countries?
Content data: You can decide where your content data is stored. Huawei Cloud will not transfer your content data to other regions without your explicit consent or unless required by legal obligations. If you plan to transfer content data across borders and need assistance from Huawei Cloud, contact and authorize Huawei Cloud support to transfer data.
Personal data: We provide products and services for you through our global resources and servers. Any personal data we collect may be stored in the countries or regions where we, our affiliates, service providers, and subcontractors are located. This means that your personal data may be transferred to other jurisdictions outside the country or region where the product or service you use is located, or may be accessed from these jurisdictions.
What services can I use to improve cloud security?
With years of security experience and data security as the core, Huawei Cloud provides a series of multi-dimensional and in-depth security services that integrate hardware and software. For instance, there are services to manage the security posture of your system, such as Situation Awareness (SA) and Managed Threat Detection (MTD). You can also find Host Security Service (HSS) and Web Application Firewall, which can protect your cloud workloads and applications. There are also many data security services that can protect your data assets on the cloud, including Data Security Center (DSC), Data Encryption Workshop (DEW), and Data Lake Governance Center (DGC). You can check out more data security products under Huawei Cloud's [Security & Compliance] category.
You can easily build a comprehensive security system based on Huawei Cloud infrastructure and security services.
How does Huawei Cloud help me enhance security for operations and maintenance?
In the DevOps or DevSecOps process, operations and maintenance are as important as R&D. Huawei Cloud attaches great importance to O&M and has abundant practices in O&M security, vulnerability management, security event management, business continuity, and disaster recovery management. Take O&M access as an example. Huawei Cloud uses the VPN and CBH deployed in your data center to manage and audit your server O&M in a unified manner, and takes different security control measures for different operations. For more information, see "Operational Security" in Huawei Cloud Security White Paper.
You can also learn about secure and intelligent O&M from Huawei Cloud courses. For details about services recommended for O&M security, go to the O&M Security page.
What do I do to meet security and compliance requirements?
Security and compliance is a shared responsibility between Huawei Cloud and customers. That is, Huawei Cloud is responsible for the security compliance of cloud services, and you assume the responsibilities of the service security and compliance inside your organization.
Huawei Cloud keeps updating to meet the changing internal and external compliance requirements, ensures the legal and regulatory compliance of cloud services, strictly enforces security standard evaluations in a range of industries, and shares compliance practices with tenants to keep services transparent.
You need to check the applications and services that you deployed on Huawei Cloud but do not belong to Huawei Cloud against the applicable security laws and regulations.
