Future of Cybersecurity in the Cloud
Cyber attacks are often launched by sophisticated attackers, at times are state-sponsored, therefore, taking over traditional and legacy security. Attackers generally use traditional espionage tactics, with disruptive and innovative malware to bypass defense-based security measures. Such attacks need to be defeated for which transformation in security systems is essential. Security needs turn into an active profile, hunting attackers today as aggressively as its predictions of the future threats.
To ensure that attacks are predicted and defeated in real-time, cybersecurity needs to move to the cloud. Cloud can leverage big data and instant analytics over numerous end-users to immediately address threats that are known and predicted.
To build a global threat monitoring system, a collaborative approach needs to be created by cloud security to analyze both normal and abnormal activity across users. This is because the same cloud environment is advantage by different users. Cloud security is precisely appropriate to creating collaborative environment that immediately foretells threats through a worldwide threat monitoring system, sharing threats amongst all users under the same cloud umbrella.
The future of security seems to be within cloud now. Cyber spies or attackers will surely get frustrated due to the way predictive security has innovated security in the cloud. The technology ensures that unfiltered endpoint data is collected and analyzed, thereby, making predictions of the attacks and protecting against the future. This means that predictive security in the cloud can recognize attacks which other endpoint security products often tend to miss, and over time provides visibility into attacks.
This new approach will provide security with an advantage, becoming the next generation of security.
