Through an analysis of over 1 billion security events observed during the study period, the findings in this study provide reliable guideposts for those deciding when and how to move infrastructure to the cloud.
Alert Logic is pleased to share with you the 2015 Cloud Security Report which uncovers consistent patterns when comparing security threats in cloud hosting provider and enterprise data center environments. Through an analysis of over 1 billion security events observed during the study period, the findings in this study provide reliable guideposts for those deciding when and how to move infrastructure to the cloud.
Alert Logic provides managed security and compliance solutions for over 3,000 customers around the globe.
As part of our cybersecurity research practice, we review threats and attacks against our vast customer base on a regular basis, looking for insight to share in our annual Cloud Security Report. Using the attack data we collect across thousands of organizations and a wide variety of industries—with IT infrastructure deployed across on-premises, hosting, and public cloud environments—our findings are representative of the current threats and attacks many organizations experience today.
For this report, we employed our big data security analytics engine to analyze over one billion events and identify over 800,000 security incidents. These incidents range in severity from “Review at your earliest convenience” to
“You are under a targeted attack; deploy countermeasures immediately.”
Unlike other security reports that offer a generalized analysis, our report is based on real data: our customers’ data, our analysis, and our stories. We believe that this firsthand accounting of attacks against cloud environments can provide insight into how to better secure your IT environments, protect your customer data, and ultimately continue to grow your business.
We hope that you find this report informative and valuable, and that it bolsters your efforts for continually improving the security framework of your business.
