Effective security tools are now table stakes for organizations to ensure they meet evolving legislative standards around due diligence and data control. But these straightforward security measures aren’t enough to address the evolving nature of information technology (IT) environments — from rapid cloud adoption to mobile-first environments to the update of edge computing. The sheer volume and variety of corporate IT environments create organizations’ ever-changing challenges.
Sadly, once again we find ourselves watching war as it unfolds. The truth is that, by accident or design, we’re all in a war zone online, because online conflict does not respect country boundaries or even physical distance. Western targets must prepare accordingly, by understanding their attack surface in granular detail, and probing for weaknesses that could be exploited by adversaries in the days, weeks and months to come. Resilience is the name of the game here, and that will only come about by plugging the highest risk gaps now across cloud and on-premises infrastructure.
Cloud computing has revolutionized data storage and access. It’s led the charge for digital transformation and allowed the increased adoption of remote work. At the same time, however, cloud computing has also increased security risks. As networks have grown and cloud resources have become more entrenched in workflow, cloud computing has created larger potential attack surfaces. To safeguard their mission-critical data and operations, organizations need to know chief cloud cyber risks and have to combat them.
Cyber threats are fast-evolving, and organizations must stay vigilant at all times to protect their business-critical information from prying eyes. One oversight or outdated control could expose your network to different types of cyberattacks, leading to costly breaches. RedSeal offers comprehensive cybersecurity solutions in today’s business environment where cyber complexity and threats are rapidly escalating. Global 2000 corporations and government agencies trust us to help them secure their networks and assets.
Cybersecurity is getting more complicated every day. Why is this happening? Organizations are seeing their infrastructure becoming more complex, attack surfaces growing dramatically, and threats from cybercriminals evolving. What’s more, the reliance on public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments — coupled with more remote workers — has expanded the security perimeter for many organizations.
Cloud security is complex and distributed. Implementing security controls across on-premise environments traditionally sits with the information security team, but in the cloud, the responsibility could be distributed across developers, DevOps and InfoSec teams. DevOps and developers don’t primarily focus on security, and the impact is often seen as an increase in misconfigurations introducing the risk of breaches.
There’s no way around it: Cyberattacks are escalating. What does this mean? It’s a matter of when, not if, when it comes to network compromise, and companies can no longer assume that security frameworks offer invincibility from evolving cyberattack trends. Instead, they need an approach designed to help them survive the work-case scenario — and come out stronger on the other side.
Cloud computing is hotter than ever before. The reason is quite simple: business organizations find it easier to integrate cloud solutions with their ongoing business operations. In addition, cloud solutions are often more cost-effective than deploying in-house servers and developing custom Information Technology (IT) enterprise tools. As more organizations continue to migrate their workloads and applications to the cloud, security issues will become more prominent, requiring a dynamic solution that offers secure communication pathways between complex IT environments. Cloud network segmentation and defense in depth (DiD) security model can provide a way forward.
It’s been a banner year for cybersecurity threats, and while rapid shifts to remote and hybrid work are partly responsible for this increase, attackers are also taking this opportunity to expand their efforts and find new ways to confuse security tools, confound infosec defenders and compromise critical services. The result is a changing security landscape that requires both active observation and robust response from IT teams. Unfortunately, continual monitoring for common threats often shifts the focus to the growing forest of technology threats — and leaves companies struggling to see the trees.
Manufacturing companies face increasing risk from cyberattacks, but there’s no single cause for this upward threat trajectory — the combination of always-on connected devices with growing cloud computing use and the increasing need for big data analysis in production planning and management all play a role in the evolution of manufacturing attacks. To mitigate the impact of evolving threats, companies need security solutions capable of delivering improved visibility, enhancing overall agility, and increasing access control. Only then can organizations fortify themselves against threats and protect their growth and profitability.
