A successful cyber security strategy's key component is effective defence, especially in cases of cloud technologies. Cloud technologies are susceptible to same attack vectors as the more traditional on-premise deployments. For detailed attention to these, you can look at internal security events and other relevant...
To stop the DDoS mayhem, companies continue to invest heavily in deploying the most advanced hybrid mitigation solutions; however, attackers still manage to bypass them and create business disruptions.

Kubernetes brings some specific security requirements to the table. For a managed Kubernetes service like GKE, users have three main layers that require action: the workloads running on the cluster, the cluster and its components, and the underlying GCP services on which the cluster depends, and more.
Actors behind threats have a toolbox of exploit techniques at their disposal. They often
combine several intrusion tools and techniques in order to compromise and maintain
access to their target. The key to disrupting is breaking the kill chain.

As a result, security programs are now more proactive with analysts actively searching for the hackers that defeated their defenses.
Some security experts have prophesied the demise of traditional Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS) for almost 20 years, but this cornerstone of network security continues to soldier on. While next-generation firewalls have added IDPS functionality, they are driven more by policies than true threat...
With the volume of data breaches and cyberattacks continuing to rise, organizations are increasingly relying on breach and attack simulation tools to provide more consistent and automated validation of controls, says Cymulate's Tim Ager.
