According to an Attivo survey of security professionals conducted late last year, the cloud attack surface was the single greatest threat to enterprises. And a survey released earlier this year by Kansas-based security vendor Firemon revealed that 60% of those surveyed said their cloud deployments have accelerated past their ability to secure them.
“Because the cloud is a shared security model, traditional approaches to security aren’t working reliably,” said Carolyn Crandall, chief deception officer at Attivo Networks. “Limited visibility leads to major gaps in detection where an attacker can hijack cloud resources or steal critical information.”
Use of the cloud is now well established in many businesses. But that’s not to say that it isn’t still a fast moving sector of the industry. With greater competition than ever and the pace of innovation showing little sign of slowing down, we’ve put together some expert views on what might be in store for cloud users in 2019…Carolyn Crandall, chief deception officer and CMO at Attivo Networks also sees security challenges ahead. “Cloud will become an increased target in 2019 as adoption grows and attackers increasingly exploit weaknesses in shared security models. Cloud providers will protect the infrastructure platform with an increased awareness of hardware-based attacks, however the lack of understanding about…

Expands ThreatDefend Cloud Data Center offerings for Azure, AWS, and OpenStack.
Fremont, CA – Attivo Networks announced that it has expanded its ThreatDefend Deception and Response Platform cloud data center detection support to include Azure deployment capability in addition to existing support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and OpenStack. Additionally, the company announced its ThreatDirect solution, which is designed for remote and branch offices (ROBOs) and can be used for microsegmented networks. The technology removes the need for a local BOTsink deception server, reducing cost and eliminating the necessity for skilled local resources.

Is there a hole in your Amazon Web Services bucket?
Many organizations now rely on these cloud-based buckets, or virtual containers, to store and share data. By default, AWS Simple Storage Service, or S3, containers are not publicly accessible, and access can be tightly restricted. But many organizations inadvertently misconfigure their buckets to allow “public” or semi-public access, which can result in data being exposed.
Let’s just say cloud security on the up – Gartner
Growth cloud-based security services will remain strong, with the market reaching $5.9bn in 2017, up 21 per cent from 2016, analyst house Gartner predicts.
Growth in the cloud-based security services market will outpace the overall information security market. Email security, web security and identity and access management (IAM) will be priorities for firm looking to implement cloud-based security services, according to Gartner.
“Security information and event management (SIEM) and IAM, and emerging services offer the most significant growth potential,” said Ruggero Contu, research director at Gartner. “Emerging offerings are among the fastest-growing segments and include threat intelligence enablement, cloud-based malware sandboxes, cloud-based data encryption, endpoint protection management, threat intelligence and web application firewalls (WAFs),” he added.
