How Secure is the Cloud? (Whitepaper)
More and more business-critical processes are ending up in the cloud. The number of apps and devices connected to it will continue to grow in the coming years. This not only requires a strategy to deal with the business aspects and process optimization. A security strategy that also considers the latest threat scenarios is essential as well. Companies should therefore draw on external advice in order to explore how cloud-based security solutions help to minimize the risk of attacks.
The easiest way for companies to defend themselves against the particularly feared DDoS attacks seems to be to block cloud services, if the attacks are from Amazon or Azure. As the companies often access these services themselves, this would also interrupt their own connection and business processes would come to a standstill. Companies should therefore draw on external advice in order to explore how cloud-based security solutions help to minimize the risk of attacks. AI-based systems promise effective protection that outperforms conventional solutions by far.
