Websites & cloud applications

Embracing cloud security to enhance your business

Businesses are eager to exploit advantages of cloud-based technologies, such as cloud applications and websites to power their business. Cloud applications provide fast response to changing business needs, as they can be updated, tested and deployed quickly, thus reducing operational costs, improving business agility and reducing time to market. However, to deliver the rich business advantages that cloud applications promise, they must be harnessed by a comprehensive and stringent security strategy that methodically balances business needs and security risks.

Your Challenges

By moving business-critical applications to the cloud, IT administrators cede some security controls to cloud service providers and must therefore consider additional security measures. Internet-facing sites and cloud-based applications like Office 365 and Google Docs represent great opportunities for hackers to harvest sensitive data. SQL injections are one of the highest risks in SaaS applications, giving attackers potential access to backend databases, the ability to remotely execute commands, or worst still, to take control of the server hosting applications.

Another issue relate to cloud security is the negative impact of bad bots. While search engines (a type of internet bot) crawling websites is good for business, malicious or bad bots can have damaging and even devastating effects. It has been estimated that internet bots consume more than half the bandwidth and the majority of bot activity is actually used for malicious purposes. This raises serious security challenges for organizations with online presence. CISOs and security experts need to find ways to prevent vulnerability scanners, automated exploit kits and other malicious bots from consuming bandwidth, bringing down servers or stealing data.

User credentials is another easy target for attackers. Rather than try to hack into the application itself a much simpler approach is to gain access to sensitive data through stolen user credentials. This type of breach is becoming a new base for attackers while internet-facing websites and cloud applications are their primary targets.
