Several factors are converging to exert pressure on how security operations centers (SOCs) traditionally function. Evolving information technology (IT) infrastructure, such as cloud migration, serverless services and endpoints being off-network, are straining existing SOC methodologies and tooling. The attack surface is expanding as a result of the distributed workforce and adoption of cloud-based infrastructure and…

Many organizations are facing new cybersecurity concerns as they look to accelerate their digital transformations for themselves and their customers. At the same time, information technology (IT) and operations are being challenged to unite and innovate to meet their enterprise’s digital objectives. Often, the company’s desire to accelerate, and the security team’s need to protect…

Given the new normal of so many more people working from home—on top of a pile of evidence showing that productivity and quality of life typically go up with remote work—it is inevitable that many more companies will continue to offer those…

Currently, organizations are struggling to adjust to the new normal amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, a Bitglass survey reveals. 41% have not taken any steps to expand secure access for the remote workforce, and 50% are citing proper equipment as the biggest impediment to doing so. Consequently, 65% of organizations now enable personal devices to access…

Many organizations are automating their cloud infrastructure deployments through code. This allows them to establish a secure configuration baseline early in their DevOps lifecycle, but the security posture of most cloud resources later drifts due to undocumented changes that often remain undetected. A new study from cloud security company Accurics found that in as many…

According to a recent survey of 241 industry experts conducted by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), misconfiguration of cloud resources is a leading cause of data breaches. The primary reason for this risk? Managing identities and their privileges in the cloud is extremely challenging because the scale is so large. It extends beyond just human…
