Working on the cloud offers unrivaled benefits, flexibility, and competitive advantages. However, with such freedoms comes increased security risks. Any application, service, container, or database running in the cloud is a cloud workload. Protecting your cloud workloads should be a top priority to ensure smooth day-to-day operations and avoid costly breaches.
Benefits of CWP
How can CWP protect your business’ cloud infrastructure and workload?
CWP secures your cloud environment, including your entire cloud stack, on any cloud and any workload across containers and Kubernetes applications. With automated security and threat detection, cloud workload protection will stop suspicious activity without causing alert fatigue.
A cloud workload protection platform supports continuous integration and continuous delivery workflows. As DevOps moves faster and becomes more advanced, you don’t need to leave your security protocols behind. CWPP allows you to secure workloads at the speed of DevOps without sacrificing security or performance.
Cloud Workload Security Challenges
Cloud computing is dynamic. However, relying on a cloud environment means enhancing security measures around all workloads and endpoints. The unique characteristics and capabilities of cloud technology create new security challenges.
Expanded Attack Surface
While cloud software allows users to access your systems and instances anywhere in the world, off-premise locations mean higher risk and an expanded attack surface.
With cloud technology, you need to secure virtual servers, remote applications, cloud workloads, containers, and network communications. More users, with varying security expertise, in different locations also pose a risk.
Blind spots are the biggest downfall for many businesses. Without complete visibility, you won’t notice potential risks of vulnerabilities before they become breaches. Traditional security tools are not up to scratch. Moreover, containers are short-lived—making data collection and incident investigation difficult.
While cloud workloads and containers are highly dynamic, they pose more significant security challenges. Traditional solutions and processes are no longer sufficient. As cloud workloads allow rapid deployment and scaling, your attack surface continuously changes. Security solutions must match the speed of DevOps without limiting or sacrificing performance.
