Security for the Cloud Data Center

Securing cloud data centers is an ongoing challenge. Your adversaries—cyber criminals, nation state attackers, hacktivists—continue to develop sophisticated, invasive techniques, resulting in a continually evolving threat landscape.

 

Because clouds are dynamic in nature, with new application and services being spun up or taken down and virtual workloads being moved, security for the cloud should be dynamic also. That poses the question, are traditional firewalls that are focused on layer 3 and 4 inspection sufficient in today’s threat environment? Also, next-gen firewalls are powerful, yet not designed to protect from the velocity and variety of new attacks being created every day. In today’s world, shouldn’t firewalls be able to take immediate action based on known or emerging intelligence?

 

With the shift to cloud architectures, traditional firewall administration has become burdensome and fraught with human error due to the sheer complexity of distributed security. What’s needed is an effective network security solution that fights cyber criminals head-on and can adapt to emerging threats without exerting excessive load on the enforcement point.

  1.      Do you know if your infrastructure is under attack at this very moment, and by whom?
  2.      Are you concerned about the performance impact to the cloud if you use advanced security services available from your firewall?
  3.      Are you expanding your network and able to ensure there are no security gaps that can make the network susceptible to exploitation?

What other fears or concerns about securing the cloud data center keep you up at night?

 

Stay tuned to my blog for ideas on how to address these challenges.
