New research shows that the majority of all malware is now delivered via cloud applications, showing how attackers increasingly abuse popular cloud services to evade legacy security defenses, putting enterprise data at risk.
The report from Netskope reveals that 61 percent of all malware was delivered via a cloud app, up from 48 percent year-over-year.
On average it takes 25 days for companies to fix cloud infrastructure misconfigurations, according to a new report from cyber resilience specialist Accurics.
The research highlights security risks identified in cloud native environments. It shows that even organizations that establish a secure baseline when infrastructure is provisioned will experience 'drift' over time, when configuration changes occur in runtime, and these take an average of eight days to fix.
Detecting and resolving data leakage is a top security challenge for public sector organizations with 24 percent suffering accidental leakage of cloud data.
The 2021 Cloud Data Security Report from Netwrix finds phishing (reported by 39 percent of organizations) to be the most common incident that government agencies experienced in the cloud, followed by accidental data leakage (24 percent) and targeted attacks on infrastructure (22 percent).
The survey of almost 3,500 developers and technology managers finds that open source software is rated equal to or better than proprietary software by 94 percent of respondents. In addition when choosing cloud providers 70 percent of respondents prefer one based on open source.
We’ve all heard of the classic golden rule. For most of us, our parents would preach to us to "treat others the way we want to be treated," or another one of life's cliches. But the idea of a golden rule has gone a step further and is impacting modern business. There’s now the golden rules to cloud migration. As enterprises prepare for the future, many are continuing to look for ways to modernize their IT operations due to the cloud’s convenience, flexibility and scalability.
Migrating to the cloud from a traditional, physical infrastructure, is easier said than done as many business leaders know. This is why the seven gold rules are so critical to enterprises’ migration success. Let’s take a closer look at each rule:
There’s a serious cloud skills gap at enterprises around the world, and it’s growing broader as time goes on. The move to the cloud has been around for a number of years, but COVID-19 accelerated it noticeably.
The pandemic forced millions of employees to work from home, requiring cloud-based tools and connections to support smooth communication and collaboration from a distance. At the same time, fears of infection drove consumer adoption of digital interactions like mobile banking, online shopping, and app-based food delivery. Without embracing the cloud, businesses can’t develop the digital services their customers demand and will struggle to support streamlined remote working, but the gap between demand and supply is enormous.
Cybersecurity and risk management company RSA is launching Detect AI, a cloud-native advanced analytics and machine learning solution that provides rapid detection and actionable insights on data captured by the RSA NetWitness Platform.
It employs cloud-scale processing for behavior analytics and uses unsupervised machine-learning to allow it to detect and respond to threats without manual oversight.
Expense reporting can be a headache for both employees and businesses.
For employees, hanging onto receipts and filling out detailed paperwork is tedious and gets in the way of more productive tasks. It can be easy to lose track of important information needed to file reports correctly, especially for frequent travelers. Traditional reporting procedures put the onus on the employee to keep tabs on one more thing -- on top of doing their jobs.
In 2020, companies like Tesla and Aerion (supersonic jets) flaunted 'Digital Twins' as being the cornerstones of their product design prowess.
This concept of representing physical objects in digital fashion is an extension of the general computer simulation industry that has been decades in the making. If 'software is eating the world', it seems that for the applied sciences type of domain, computer simulations have officially become the standard utensils.
Ford and Google are to create a new partnership designed to accelerate the automobile giant’s digital transformation, and reinvent the connected vehicle.
The two firms are creating a new collaborative group, called Team Upshift, to leverage the talent and assets of both companies and unlock personalized consumer experiences and data-based opportunities. These will potentially include new retail options and ownership offers based on connected vehicle data.
If you’re an avid Sling user then you likely pay the extra $5 per month for the cloud DVR Plus service. It works like any other DVR, except recordings just aren’t on your hard drive. The TV service has been providing this for a couple of years and it’s been a big frustration for many users because the limit was a bit stingy.
No longer -- the company has upped the space in a big way and, if you haven’t already, you’ll be getting a notification the next time you sign in.
For companies that deal in sensitive information, keeping data secure in the cloud and for remote working is a major challenge.
To help meet this TetherView is launching an innovative managed private cloud service called 'Digital Bunker' which offers a 'one-way-in and one-way-out' private cloud solution for enterprise customers.
Digital risk protection platform CybelAngel has updated its offering to include asset discovery and monitoring in order to help businesses identify hidden risks.
It can uncover hidden, rogue or obscure devices and services existing outside of the security team's awareness and control. These shadow assets include file servers, cloud databases, connected industrial systems and IoT devices.
2020 showed all the ways that data protection could go wrong. Ransomware took off on a steady incline throughout the year with record numbers of data theft, corruption, etc. Data sprawl and cloud access to data have also become threats, as many employees moved to remote work and expanded companies’ potentially vulnerable data environments.
Organizations are paying more attention to security and data protection issues while utilizing cloud to better manage and protect their critical data.
According to a new report from mobile security specialist Wandera 52 percent of organizations experienced a malware incident on a remote device in 2020, up from 37 percent in 2019.
The report is based on captured data from Wandera's global network of 425 million sensors across both corporate-owned and BYOD assets, making it the world’s largest and most insightful mobile data set.
