Public cloud computing adoption is outpacing cybersecurity defenses. Security and compliance risks involved in cloud computing threaten your organization. We are facing major security challenges that should not be neglected.

Agile DevOps Practices

With today’s agile development, DevOps delivers software on a daily or weekly basis and often without any security oversight. Although DevOps can shorten software development life cycle, the high speed of development creates extra risk of security, which leaves you exposed with every release. Security is therefore sacrificed for the sake of speed, leading to misconfigurations, unresolved vulnerabilities, and other flaws to remain and exposing the software to breaches or malfunctions.

Outdated Security Tools

Security tools rely on defining rigid policies based on fixed IP addresses in the past, which fail in dynamic cloud environments, where IP addresses are constantly changing. Moreover, agent or proxy-based solutions will not work with API-driven services in public cloud, such as Amazon RDS, Amazon S3, and Elastic Load Balancing.

Costy for Building Own Solution

Point security tools provide visibility into configuration issues, user activities, or network traffic in isolation. However, assessing the true risk across your entire public cloud infrastructure requires correlation across these data sets to produce context around issues. You can achieve this by aggregating the data in a security information and event management system. Extracting actionable insights involves complex correlations and artificial intelligence.
