Attacks, exploits and vulnerabilities
Any complete cloud workload security stack must feature robust anti-exploit technology for both end-user and server systems. Cloud workloads run on servers, either on-premises or in the cloud, and end-user systems access those workloads. End-user systems can give attackers indirect access to workload data, while servers can provide more direct access if attackers achieve a foothold.
