With cloud, security has shifted to the configuration--and misconfiguration—of cloud resources. Developers are moving fast, making their own infrastructure decisions, and changing them constantly. The self-service freedom of cloud is a boon for innovation velocity, but mistakes can create infrastructure vulnerabilities that modern cloud threats.
Lured by the promise of scalability, cost benefits, innovation and business growth, organizations are rapidly embracing the cloud for their IT resources and processing. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2025, 80 percent of enterprises will have shut down their traditional data center in favor of cloud, versus 10% today.
There is a lot of talk about DevSecOps these days, and we've been working in the area for years now and have learned some things that work and some that don't. First, we'll give you our view on what DevSecOps is, and then we'll make a few recommendations on how to start doing it and get real results in an hour or two!
A lot of folks have realized that manually fixing cloud infrastructure to correct security and compliance issues is just too slow and error prone to handle the threat landscape on the cloud. An increasingly common approach to speeding up remediation these days is to use cloud functions, such as AWS Lambda or Azure Functions, connected to a.
All humans make mistakes and some of those mistakes could lead to security breaches. According to Gartner, through 2023 at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault. Many of these successful cyber-attacks will be a result of hackers preying on the vulnerabilities of human weakness to successfully gain access to an.
Infrastructure misconfiguration is the leading cause of data breaches in the cloud, and a big reason misconfiguration happens is infrastructure configuration “drift,” or change that occurs in a cloud environment post-provisioning. If you’re responsible for the security and compliance of cloud environments, you probably spend a lot of time.
In last week’s blog we discussed the Shared Responsibility Model and how it affects enterprises’ cloud security. Based on the Shared Responsibility Model, organizations are responsible for security in the cloud, which includes how they configure and use the resources provided by the cloud service providers. Falling within this realm are cloud.
Security and compliance are priorities for companies in the cloud. However, cloud security and compliance is not the responsibility of any single entity alone and determining the demarcation line can lead to confusion. Security and compliance in the cloud is a shared responsibility between the cloud service providers (CSP) and their customers.
Whenever there's talk of the cloud, misconfiguration and the security risk it brings inevitably becomes a part of the conversation. And of course, once you start talking about cloud misconfiguration, “auto-remediation” often creeps into the conversation. But what does “auto-remediation” really mean? The concept of “auto-remediation” is that the.
As organizations adopt cloud technology to modernize their businesses and increase agility, employing security automation to identify and correct cloud infrastructure misconfiguration has become a necessity. Cloud misconfiguration is one of the most common and significant security risks facing organizations today, yet it is also preventable.
