Frequently Asked Questions:

At Arctic Wolf we hear some common questions about Public Cloud and security:


I would love to move more workloads to the cloud, but how do I ensure the workloads I move are secure?

When you leverage Arctic Wolf as your security operations provider, you can be assured that migrating more applications into AWS doesn’t impact the oversight you’ll have. Arctic Wolf has extensive experience deploying and monitoring AWS Services and APIs.

What if I don’t have the time or people to leverage Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS Control Tower, or other AWS service?

Arctic Wolf gives customers scalability to take on the right mix of services and tooling to optimize the cost versus risk reduction. Our concierge team can help with best practices and practical advice to get started. We will then provide detection and response for these services 24x7.

Protecting against unauthorized access and data loss

Attack Category Description / Examples Cloud Vulnerability
Unauthorized Access
Malicious login activity for users and admins, admin settings changes, privilege escalations, logins from unusual international locations, phishing and credential theft
Cloud services are designed for access from multiple locations and come with support for multiple devices and operating systems, making them particularly vulnerable to unauthorized access.
Data Exfiltration
Data breaches, where attackers attempt to acquire sensitive data, such as personally identifiable information, intellectual property, etc.
Cloud systems enable remote access, data download, and ubiquitous mobility. 3rd party API access and OAuth token issues may expose sensitive data. Compromised mobile devices may also result in data loss.
Resource Misuse
Cryptocurrency mining, “cryptojacking,” hackers exploiting corporate resources to provide services
Cloud instances are easy to create without authorization and control remotely. They often lack comprehensive visibility and native alerting.
Insider Threat
Human error, accidental data exposure, malicious insiders
Cloud platforms facilitate data mobility. Hybrid architectures rely on multiple platforms, and many cloud services enable easy creation of public-facing links.
