Cloud Security: The Honeypot Project
Effectively leveraging the cloud is not just about migrating data and applications. Security must travel into the cloud as well. As businesses have embraced cloud computing, attackers have turned their attention to cloud environments as well. In conjunction with Crusade Partners, Armor conducted a honeypot experiment to observe what the threat landscape can be like for small and midsized businesses. It didn’t take long for attackers to demonstrate just how challenging the situation can be. Almost immediately, attack activity began. Now as much as ever, it is critical for businesses to take a defense in-depth approach to cloud security that takes advantage of native controls, security best practices and additional security technologies and services that can detect, prevent and respond to the threats that can impact your cloud environment.
