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.
Cloud security has become increasingly complex and distributed. The rapid transition to remote work and increased cloud adoption have changed the IT landscape dramatically, which has produced new vectors for cyber attacks and data breaches. Today’s cyber criminals aren’t necessarily trying to knock down doors. Organizations are actually leaving many of them open themselves. According to Gartner, through 2023, “…at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.”
Ransomware attacks are growing, increasing the risks of data exfiltration, downtime, and revenue loss. The right cybersecurity solutions can keep your business safe.
Recent pandemic pressures have created the perfect storm for state and local cybersecurity breaches. With some staff still working from home, state and local agencies face the challenge of deploying defense at a distance over networks, connections, and applications that are often insecure, unencrypted, and in many cases unapproved. Read on to learn how they can better weather the storm.
I think we’d all agree the last year and a half has brought disruption, and cloud security wasn’t exempt. The Covid-19 crisis has dramatically expanded attack surfaces as companies transitioned to remote work and embraced the cloud. But let’s be clear: the cloud is not a magic bullet. Yes, the cloud is relatively new and exciting, and it does prevent some of the old security mistakes. And yes, the cloud does close off some previously vulnerable spaces. But at the same time, it opens up new ways to do things wrong.
Cloud security is maturing – it has to. New strategies are surfacing to respond to new problems. Dr. Mike Lloyd, RedSeal CTO, reviews one of the latest – CSPM.
The days of the traditional security stack are numbered, brought on by the maturity of shared resource computing and the rapid migration to the public cloud due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This blog will explore a brief history of fortification, its impact on the early internet security architectures, and today’s challenges.
ONC Cures Act Final Rule, apart from providing patients and their healthcare providers secure yet seamless access to health information, aims to increase innovation and trigger competition. With more competition comes innovation, as new entrants offer much wider healthcare choices and solutions for patients. While the ONC Cures Act Final Rule aims to make healthcare information exchange easy through standardized APIs, these APIs are vulnerable to cyberattacks. Find out how cloud solutions can help enhance API security.
