New eBook: Defending the Cloud

Tips and Best Practices from SC Media

Organizations are all-in on digital transformation to the cloud, with worldwide spending on cloud infrastructure increasing 38% year over year—topping $26 billion in the second quarter of 2019. Unfortunately for Security Operations, the number of threats to data in the cloud grows at an even greater rate.

SC Media's newest cloud security ebook focuses on the technologies and practices CISOs should adopt to secure data in the cloud and defend against cyberattacks. We've put together a few of their major recommendations, and you can download the ebook at any time.

  1. SC Media's panel of cloud security experts says strong encryption is a must-have to secure data in the cloud when it's in transit, memory, and at rest. They also point out a major downside of adopting stronger encryption such as TLS 1.3 with mandated perfect forward secrecy.

  2. Encryption creates darkspace that makes it difficult for tools without decryption capabilities to detect and respond to threats.

  3. Even with cloud-based network defenses in place, having the ability to decrypt SSL/TLS 1.3 traffic at line rate is a must for threat hunting in the cloud.

That's where cloud-native network detection and response (NDR) solutions with out-of-band decryption provide value.

Download the SC Media ebook to learn more about how NDR products that manage encrypted packets can prevent significant loss by giving security teams the ability to quickly detect, investigate, and respond to breaches in IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS environments.
