For small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), cloud computing services provide an easy and flexible way to access a multitude of applications and the power needed to keep the business running regardless of location. These services provide an environment to rapidly scale and develop new software programs and ecosystems without the need for a heavy investment in infrastructure.
Named by many as the “cyber-attack of the year,” the recent Colonial Pipeline ransomware incident caused more than just business disruption - it inflicted considerable economical damage, reminding us how fragile our digital infrastructure is.
The use of containers to increase speed of deployment and portability for modern applications is growing rapidly. Now part of the standard architecture for cloud-native businesses, Gartner predicts that, by 2025, 85 percent of organizations will run containers in production, up from less than 30 percent in 2020.
Protection requirements for cloud workloads continue to grow as organizations accelerate their adoption of containers and host an ever-increasing number of workloads in hybrid and multi-cloud architectures. Cloud Workload Protection Platforms (CWPP) are critical to protect these workloads from cyberattack and provide security teams with visibility into, and control of, cloud-based infrastructure and applications.
The potential dangers of ransomware are top of mind for cyber security and IT leaders around the world. The threat of these attacks continues to rise with no organization completely safe. Ransomware attacks have been reported by businesses of all sizes and vertical industries.
As organizations expand their operations to multiple platforms, they must also manage the content disseminated there. This raises questions of how to protect audiences from illicit content, particularly when it comes to email security. One of the best ways to deal with these attacks is to integrate deep learning technology that can identify complex and subtle malicious files in emails.
A growing number of organizations are increasing their use of the cloud.
These workloads, including databases, transactions, and analytics, are vital to business operations.
Cloud workloads are different from regular endpoints which is why security teams need to deploy platforms specifically designed to protect these resources.
Come August, the Bitdefender team – along with some 20K security and InfoSec professionals – will descend on Las Vegas for four days of revelry on and about the latest security risks, research, and trends.
- More attacks aimed at exploiting unpatched year-old vulnerabilities
- An increase in stealth/covert execution tactics
- APT-hackers-for-hire becoming the new norm
Cloud breaches continue to riddle organizations’ threat landscape, with misconfigured cloud storage services and poor security practices leading to more than 200 breaches in the past two years, according to the latest Accurics report.
The August 2020 edition of the Netskope Cloud and Threat Report highlights a 161% increase in visits to high-risk apps and sites brought on by a 64% remote workforce.
