The Ransomware Threat

December 22, 2022

The Ransomware Threat
Ransomware continues to be among the most critical risks facing organizations of all sizes. Attackers have perfected techniques and business models that will pose a challenge to even the best prepared organizations.

While the encryption of a high volume of computers on a network can potentially be mitigated by adequate backups, ransomware actors have discovered new avenues of extortion, such as threatening to release data stolen prior to encryption. While ransomware attacks are time consuming to perform, ransomware actors have managed to achieve scale through the introduction of “ransomware-as-a-service” operations, renting out their tools and infrastructure to other attackers in exchange for a cut of the profits.

Guide to Cloud Security Posture Management Tools

whitePaper | June 16, 2023

Good cloud security hygiene starts with complete visibility into the security and compliance posture of every resource you deploy into your cloud. It’s one thing to achieve this visibility in a single cloud environment—you can lean heavily on the native monitoring and auditing tools of your cloud provider, using third-party solutions to fill in gaps (e.g., threat detection)—but in a multi-cloud architecture, maintaining robust cloud security posture becomes exponentially more complex. It is much more difficult to achieve centralized visibility as well as consistently enforce policies and compliance rules within a multi-cloud environment. It’s also more complicated to detect threats and fix vulnerabilities quickly due to the sheer complexity of threats across distributed, multilayered architectures. You can address these challenges, though—and you need to, if you want to take advantage of multi-cloud architecture without compromising on security.
