Over the past decade, the cloud has become an integral part of an organizations’ business processes, innovation and digital transformation. And as with most new technologies, new security challenges arise.
The cloud attack surface is broader than traditional on-premise environments. Since many cloud services do not have a specific set of IP addresses, attackers are shifting their focus to the people who have the most significant level of access — the developers who built the applications. If just one developer clicks a malicious link or publicly divulges too much information, an attacker can steal their credentials, and access the entire cloud environment.
In addition to developer security mistakes, the most common vulnerabilities exposing cloud environments are misconfigurations, overly permissive access rights and unpatched servers.
X-Force® Red cloud testing uncovers and helps fix critical vulnerabilities exposing organizations’ most important cloud-based assets. From containers to images, operating systems, applications, developers and more. X-Force Red can find known and unknown security flaws during cloud migrations and beyond.
