For global organizations, the cloud has become a vital part of day-to-day operations. Alongside its rapid expansion, the cybersecurity world has witnessed a rise in cloud-related threats.
In fact, Sophos’s State of Cloud Security 2020 report found that 70 percent of organizations with some public cloud footprint experienced a cloud incident in the previous year. And organizations with multi-cloud environments experienced nearly a 50 percent higher rate of incidents than those running a single cloud.
Even with these figures in play, there’s no turning back. All indicators suggest the cloud will represent an even greater portion of a business’s IT footprint in coming years. Workloads in the cloud are growing, cloud spending is growing, and major structural factors of modern business will continue to drive cloud growth for the foreseeable future.
With such a rapid shift to the cloud, what can an organization do to stay secure? Unfortunately, legacy tools and approaches are not equipped to tackle these new challenges, putting cloud-enabled businesses at increasing risk of a data breach. Today’s organizations need a new approach to securing the cloud.
In our in-depth white paper, Protecting Cloud-Enabled Organizations with Cloud Security Posture Management, we look at the challenges and top threats in the cloud today, as well as offer advice on how to enhance your security posture and protect your business.
