As cloud adoption grows, Alert Logic has observed a shift in security concerns. While cloud security remains a major concern, the business benefits of moving applications to the cloud are too compelling to resist. Now, having largely committed to a cloud strategy, IT professionals are redirecting their focus to finding the best ways to secure their cloud-based applications and data.
Download the Cloud Security Report today to gain insight on how Alert Logic continues its practice of uncovering trends that threaten both cloud and on-premises environments.
Developing for and in the cloud has never been more dependent on data. Flexibility, performance, security—your applications need a database architecture that matches the innovation of your ideas.
Industry analyst Ovum explored how Azure Cosmos DB is positioned to be the flagship database of internet-based products and services, and concluded that Azure Cosmos DB “is the first to open up [cloud] architecture to data that is not restricted by any specific schema, and it is among the most flexible when it comes to specifying consistency.”
From security and fraud detection to consumer and industrial IoT, to personalized e-commerce and social and gaming networks, to smart utilities and advanced analytics, Azure Cosmos DB is how Microsoft is structuring the database for the age of cloud.

This Webroot whitepaper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications. In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as:
• Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers
• More comprehensive signature and URL database
• Supports remote users more securely and without the cost of putting servers in every location
Despite the range of functionality offered in Office 365, like any cloud-based offering, it cannot be all things to all customers. There are features missing in Office 365 that will prompt some customers to consider the use of third-party, cloud-based, or on-premise tools to enhance Office 365’s native capabilities. Specifically, these third-party enhancements are focused primarily on the security, archiving, and encryption capabilities built into Office 365. Read now!
"Agile companies push new application versions to production every few weeks, sometimes even faster. With super-fast Beta cycles being the norm, getting various user groups, such as remote QA teams, access to staging environments can slow down your delivery timelines. What if you could enable secure access for any number of users in 15 minutes?
BubblewrApp’s Service Access Service (SAS) is a turnkey, cloud-based service that acts as the first line of defense for your applications. BubblewrApp’s SAS enables its customers to grant easy access to applications deployed ""behind the firewall"" (on premise) or ""inside the Virtual Private Cloud"" (in a public cloud) from any remote location. Customers can begin leveraging SAS within minutes without requiring any changes to pre-existing network and security policies. The result is a vastly superior secure application access model that enables a zero CapEx, low OpEx model for secure application access, both on premise and in the public cloud."
"It’s important to understand the role that an Identity platform plays in modern enterprise IT. In the past, Identity and Access Management systems were an afterthought. They were put into place after making many of your other architectural decisions. With the move to web, cloud and mobile, IAM has become a key variable in hardware and software deployment, as well as in operational strategy.
This webinar will reveal why leveraging an IAM platform, built as a single cloud-based platform for security across on-prem and cloud, can solve these issues."
As a mid-sized or smaller organization, there is a lure of feeling safety in obscurity. “We’re too small to be a target for cyber attacks” is a common refrain used to justify a lax network security posture. Unfortunately, it’s a refrain that may come to haunt you.
Drivers for cloud solutions include the need to innovate, simplify and cut costs. Users say a key benefit cloud-based security is no need to deploy equipment or software. The cloud provider furnishes and hosts everything in secure data centers. This arrangement lets your business avoid capital expenses and to control ongoing costs.
This paper describes how your small or medium-sized company can manage IT risks and maintain regulatory compliance with minimal staff and budget.
This whitepaper discusses the challenges of security in the cloud and how the use of cloud-based services will enable organizations of all sizes, from the very smalles to multinational enterpries, to put trust back into the security equation.

The cloud is here to stay, and Microsoft SharePoint users are finally making the move. Since 2013, the number of SharePoint users with intentions of moving their SharePoint sites to the cloud has doubled, according to a 2015 AIIM survey.1 Many users are making the change to reduce IT costs, improve access for external partners and increase mobility.
Casey, IT manager at a mid-size healthcare organization, is one of those users planning to move his organization to a cloud-based SharePoint infrastructure. But because Casey works in healthcare, he’s especially concerned about the security of the cloud. And he’s not alone with that concern — AIIM reports that 62 percent of SharePoint users cite security as their biggest concern when considering a cloud or hybrid solution for SharePoint.
More specifically, many SharePoint users are concerned about the following three areas of security in the cloud:
• Identity and access
• Data protection and privacy
• Compliance and governance

Today’s workforce is increasingly nomadic. Employees use personal and company-owned devices desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with various operating systems to access corporate resources over different networks from virtually anywhere. Roaming users and cloud-based applications have eroded the network perimeter where enterprises have traditionally focused their security controls.
In the wake of this disruption, vendors offered myriad point products that solve only a portion of the security problem. These products usually require costly custom integrations and high management overhead to boot.
Making matters worse, traditional security approaches can’t address an evolving threat landscape that includes ransomware, stealthy attacks that dwell in a customer’s environment for months, and threats targeting iOS and Android devices. In fact, the mobile workforce is more vulnerable than ever before.
Address budget shortages and skills gaps with cloud-based Security Intelligence & Analytics. Use a Software-as-a-Service solution to replace aging security technologies and deploy a market leading solution in only weeks. Read how you can focus on monitoring the environment rather than updating software, and replace up-front capital costs with a monthly operational fee.
