For most organizations, cloud workload security is dependent upon the installation and maintenance of security agents across all assets. However, IT security teams are not always informed of cloud deployments, so this lack of visibility results in missed vulnerabilities and attack vectors.
While public cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) keep their platforms secure, customers are still responsible for securing the workloads, data, and processes they run inside the cloud – just as they do in their on-prem world. Such shared responsibility poses a serious challenge due to the speed and frequency of public cloud deployments.
Orca Security’s 2020 State of Public Cloud Security Report analyzed data from more than two million scans of 300,000 public cloud assets running on AWS, Azure, and GCP. Scanned accounts represented Orca’s customer base across numerous industries including financial services, professional services, travel, cloud computing, online marketplaces, entertainment, real estate, and more.
