Cloud computing is continually transforming the way organizations store, use, and share data, workloads, and software. And, cloud environments experience the same threats as traditional data center environments – cloud computing runs software, software has vulnerabilities, and adversaries try to exploit these vulnerabilities.
Cloud computing has enabled organizations to grow and scale without having to make large capital investments. But the public nature of the cloud also places you at risk from a variety of cyberattacks. Organizations can still enjoy the benefits, while minimizing the dangers by understanding the threats and taking proper preventative measures.
