Elsewhere this month we’re taking a closer look at the cloud. First, Nick Bowman at CyberArk explains how unsecured credentials pose a significant threat to cloud computing, especially when it comes to those with privileged access. Then Kevin J. Smith at Ivanti examines how effectively curtail the high cost of cloud sprawl, stating that “Cloud instances should be treated as strategic assets and rigorously recorded in an inventory, which must be constantly updated with the relevant attributes.”

We also have Aleksander Gorkowienko at Spirent SecurityLabs making the case for continuous testing and real-time monitoring of cloud environments as the most effective method of keeping them secure. As Aleksander explains, “Securing such a dynamic, diffuse, and fast-evolving architecture is a challenging task. It requires continuous, comprehensive testing of the platform, based on real-time threat intelligence.” Read his article featured here for more.
