Classic Rock and Cloud-Native Attacks Collide at Black Hat

Maybe it’s because of the ACDC-inspired CASB socks at the Bitglass booth. Or maybe people are just becoming smarter about cloud-security and realize the importance of cloud access security broker (CASB) technology. Whatever the reason, more people than usual who approached the cloud security vendor at this year’s Black Hat knew what CASB is — and what it does, said Jacob Serpa, product marketing manager for Bitglass. Serpa said that compared to past security conferences, many more people approached the Bitglass booth at last week’s Black Hat conference knowing what CASB is. Now the burning question is what is different about Bitglass CASB compared to others? Serpa also found that people were ready to discuss the cloud security landscape and emerging cloud-native threats. One major new one, he said, is context-aware malware.
