Fortinet is excited to announce the integration of the Fortinet Security Fabric with Amazon GuardDuty to automate remediation and threat intelligence in Amazon Web Services. This integration accelerates time-to-protection in the cloud by using dynamic FortiGate firewall rules to block new detected threats.
Cloud computing is an inherently dynamic and rapidly changing space. With the vast majority of organizations now adopting multi-cloud environments, the breadth and depth of the attack surface has expanded rapidly. Here are eight security issues that CISOs should consider when implementing a multi-cloud strategy.
This same data must also be protected as it moves across systems, applications, devices, and the multi-cloud. Which means that security needs to be able to seamlessly extend to the farthest reaches of the network, and even to those elements that may not even be in the network yet. It must also be found at every point of data interaction, not just at the perimeters or to secure north-south traffic. This represents a fundamental change in how security must be approached. It’s no longer just about the placement of security in the different parts of the network. It goes far beyond that.
Building an effective security framework designed for your organization needs to start with three basic strategies. With these best practices in place, you should be able to quickly cut through the noise, avoid the “shiny new toy” syndrome, and quickly assess whether a particular solution is right for your organization right now.
The explosion of new applications and connected IoT devices has created a wealth of data that, when analyzed, provides businesses with critical insights into consumer behaviors and interests, allowing them to create more customized offerings. Combined with the accelerated adoption of solutions across IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, the cloud is here to stay. However, this also means that cybercriminals will continue to attack the cloud.
Cloud adoption is on a steady upward march. It's not uncommon to hear that laggard organizations, even those that are highly regulated and historically slow to adopt new tech, are leveraging SaaS applications or a private cloud. But one thing that has surprised some pundits: As digital transformation pushes CIOs forward, your customers are not moving workflows to a single massive public cloud. They're hedging, spreading workloads across several cloud environments. RightScale's latest State of the Cloud Survey reports that 85 percent of enterprises currently use a multicloud strategy. As to the mix, IDC predicts that public cloud will account for almost 32 percent of all IT infrastructure spending in 2020, while private cloud will represent a little less than 20 percent.
Federal agencies are under pressure to make a timely, secure shift to the cloud with minimal disruption. For many, however, this is easier said than done. With a wide array of data that falls under a variety of privacy and protection regulations, "how?" is a complicated question.
Digital business is transforming how organizations and individuals communicate, operate, and interact. These changes not only hold the promise for new opportunities, but also bring new risks to data, economies, and resources. Which is why Fortinet is a Gold Sponsor at this year’s IBM Think 2018, being held March 19-22 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
These intelligent botnet clusters swarm compromised devices to identify and assault different attack vectors all at once.
