The operational and economic benefits of working in the cloud means that migration will continue, and increased necessity for remote working means that there is an enormous uptick in cloud and SaaS applications for workers across all industries.
However, these changes are not always implemented with security in mind. The vulnerabilities that cloud computing exposes organizations to continue to grow, with more and more organizations switching to multi-cloud and hybrid cloud strategies - adding complexity and opening new threat vectors.
The reality is that security teams are struggling to keep up with the changing digital work. Cloud computing is unfamiliar territory, and the complex patchwork of platforms deployed by each organization is made worse by an insufficient security strategy.
Still worse, lack of visibility and control that teams face in the cloud leaves them even more attractive targets for cyber-criminals.
Organizations need more than just cloud security – they need an enterprise-wide approach, with oversight into every part of their digital estate. Only by having an understanding of what normal looks like in all aspects of a business will the most subtle signals of attack be spotted.
Darktrace is the world’s leading cyber AI company and the creator of autonomous response technology. Exploring the three main threat vectors through which cyber-criminals gain a foothold in organizations’ networks, Darktrace’s new cloud white paper looks at various forms of attack – and how to protect against them.
