Public Cloud Security: Making It a Business Enabler

In general, if a cybercriminal is able to successfully launch an attack at an owner-operated IT infrastructure, they can also launch one at a cloud service provider. In fact, public cloud services have become highly attractive targets for cybercriminals. For them, breaking into a cloud service is like merging onto a superhighway that can deliver their little bundles of evil far and wide, potentially impacting hundreds or thousands of organizations with a single strike.

Tornado warning: Commingling of public and IoT clouds?

Clouds are tricky things. It’s hard to tell where the foundations of a cloud reside. You could point at the physical infrastructure. Some of the best side-channel attacks target hardware. There is the operating system that runs everything. And there is the middleware, billing, hypervisors, drivers and web front ends. The potential attack surface of a cloud service provider (CSP) or consumption market platform is gigantic.

Rise of the Funnel Cloud: When Good Clouds Go Bad

In the simplest terms, the cloud allows users to store and access data and programs on someone else’s hardware, usually over the internet, rather than using their local device or network resources. But it is much more than simply offsite storage. It also includes services that allow users to replicate some or all of their local environment, from running applications to designing complex infrastructures. And it needs to be able to scale to lots of users. Simply put, you do not have a “cloud” unless...

Bringing Your Cloud Visibility Back Into Focus

Like data center sprawl, virtualization sprawl occurs when the numbers, locations, and functions of virtual machines distributed across a network grow to the point that they can no longer be managed effectively. As organizations continue to move applications and other core workloads into the cloud, virtualization sprawl can give way to “security sprawl” if not architected properly. In order to achieve the scale, elasticity, and efficiency benefits of the cloud, the data and security elements across all environments must be integrated,...
