Float safely through the cloud

Posted by: Aseem Rastogi | September 04, 2013

Alert Logic’s Fall 2012 State of the Cloud Security Report finds that anything that can be possibly accessed from outside, whether enterprise or cloud, has equal chances of being attacked. Web application-based attacks hit both service provider environments (53% organizations) and on-premise environments (44% organizations). However, the survey pointed out that on- premise environment users experience an average of 61.4 attacks while cloud service provider environment customers averaged only 27.8. On-premise environment users also suffered significantly more brute force attacks compared to their counterparts.
