Keep Your Data Secure On and Off the Cloud: Defense In-Depth

Maywun Wong
Director, Product Marketing

“In our recent Cloud Threat Report, we asked respondents how concerned they were with 13 different types of threats over the next 12 months. All 13 different types of attacks had at least half of all respondents highly concerned. That shows that external threats are highly varied, damaging, and keeping security experts awake at night.” – Laurent Gil, Architect, Oracle

Which bank would you trust with your money: The one with a locking vault door, the one with an alarm system, or the one with an armed guard?

It’s easy to see that it shouldn’t be an either/or question. You would want a bank to have all of the above, and then some. The more types of protection, the better.

Cybersecurity in the cloud era works the same way. It’s not about finding the one strongest type of security. It’s about defense in-depth, overlapping layers that protect from multiple angles of attack.

Better cloud security is crucial for every business, regardless of industry or size. There’s a lot at stake: Juniper Research estimates that data breaches will cost business $8 trillion between 2017 and 2022. To avoid contributing to that total, business leaders must take initiative on increasing their organization’s security capabilities.

“Companies need to evaluate what data is at risk. At the end of the day, companies must have a cybersecurity culture. They need to have multiple sets of eyes reviewing systems and procedures in the hopes that hackers will look for an easier target.” Rich Tehrani, Futurist & Corporate Advisor
