With the growing role of cloud in business processes, innovation and digital transformation, organizations face new security challenges in the move from on-premises environments. The new target: developers who built the applications and have the most significant access. If just one developer clicks a malicious link or publicly divulges too much information, an attacker can steal credentials, and access the entire cloud environment.
