Cloud adoption has soared over the past few years and it’s not hard to see why. With better cost efficiencies, faster delivery of products and services, and improved business continuity, the cloud is increasingly vital to day-to-day operations.
Most organizations now view the cloud as essential infrastructure, but they often adopt or expand their cloud footprint without a plan for new complexities and risks. As a result, misconfiguration and mismanagement are some of the biggest causes of successful attacks on cloud infrastructure.
To mitigate these risks and ward off attacks, IT leaders must implement a comprehensive and effective cloud security program. That’s why we’ve put together the guide Securing Cloud Infrastructure: AWS and Azure. The guide takes a look at cloud risks, as well as the components of infrastructure-as- a-service (IaaS) security that are important to consider.
If the rising number of cloud breaches and incidents are any indication, security is badly lagging behind the expansion of cloud infrastructure. It’s time to build a stronger security posture and limit risks when moving to the cloud.
Inside the guide you’ll find information on:
- What the responsibilities of cloud security providers (CSPs) should include
- The top four cloud risks
- Advice on building effective IaaS security
- Challenges organizations face when adding cloud operations
- What to look for when choosing an IaaS Security vendor
