To Address Cloud Security Challenges, Simplify and Unify

The cloud introduces a number of challenges that can be overcome by bringing as many controls as possible into a single solution, offering greater visibility across the organization.

According to a 2019 Cyber Security Report published by the International Information System Security Certification Consortium, 93% of organizations say they are concerned about cloud security, and 28% admit to having experienced cloud security incidents during the past year.

The reality is, most companies lack the specialized knowledge and skills needed to ensure that customer data stored in the cloud is protected. Cloud service providers (CSPs) do provide extra security layers, such as automating threat detection, with the intent of making their customers feel more confident in the security of the cloud. However, the number of cloud breaches that are being reported shows that CSPs and organizations alike continue to struggle with cloud security. Much of this is due to a lack of unified visibility not just in the cloud, but also across an organization’s entire network; siloed teams and technologies; a lack of threat intelligence; and partnerships with third-parties whose security controls are not up to snuff.

To address these challenges, many in the industry are advocating for organizations to simplify and unify their security approach—that is, to bring as many controls as possible into a single solution in order to break down the silos between security teams and technologies and to give greater visibility across the organization. We at AT&T Cybersecurity help organizations to accomplish this with our Unified Security Management (USM) Anywhere platform.

Of course, the effectiveness of any security solution is largely determined by the threat intelligence underpinning it. In any environment, we need to identify the common tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) adversaries are using in their attacks.
