Traditional desktop software and servers have been replaced by cloud computing tools. In recent years, with the advent of digital transformation, cloud computing has garnered massive momentum, and has reshaped enterprise IT as we know it. The ease and availability of the cloud provides businesses with dynamic options for developing and deploying services and applications at a fast pace. These advances drive business
performance, but they’ve also resulted in security that just can’t keep up.
Detecting threats after they have already made their way into a network means that it may be too late to avoid damage. In the age of highly targeted, advanced cyberattacks, threat prevention is a must. Optimizing threat prevention mechanisms so that they work non-stop, and can arrest attacks before they happen is critical for your continued business growth and long-term confidence in your cloud security architecture.
Enterprises routinely fall short in implementing cloud security that
they can see, manage, and trust. Meeting cloud security goals may require rethinking and adapting to agile processes, reducing complexity, maximizing visibility, and automating compliance.
Leveraging new, comprehensive tools can help address these challenges. The following white paper offers CISOs robust insights into how you can achieve optimal cloud threat prevention and establish the best possible cloud security posture for your business.
Thinking Fast, but Moving Slow: When Security Is Not at the Speed of DevOps
Conventional security measures are static; they cannot deploy the necessary automation or offer the continuous insights needed to instantly pin-point, monitor, and secure rapid changes within the cloud. The cloud is too dynamic to successfully integrate with conventional security. Because of this, each time there’s a change in a cloud service or in application deployment requirements, there’s a possibility of a new security risk. These risks include lack of data privacy, threats to applications themselves, and threats to API storage gateways.
Here are some of the true dangers that senior security executives must consider:
