Whitepaper: Don’t think serverless security, think application security

April 21, 2019

As the next logical step in cloud computing, serverless is fundamentally changing the way developers need to think about applications and write code. While new technologies will always raise security questions, claims that serverless poses new risks are incorrect; there are no new cybersecurity threats that are serverless-specific. In fact, serverless can actually improve an application’s security posture. This includes advantages such as that the serverless provider handles security for major parts of the stack and a small, contained blast radius.

22 Cybersecurity Tips for 2022

whitePaper | June 13, 2022

The encryption is virtually unbreakable without the decryption key, and you should not spend valuable time seeking a way around the encryption if you are attacked with it. Ransomware can spread in multiple ways, but most typically, through phishing emails or by unknowingly visiting an infected website. Ransomware can be catastrophic to healthcare and other organizations, preventing critical information and systems for patient care from being accessed, for example.
