The rise of cloud is creating security blindspots

Businesses are growing increasingly reliant on Amazon Web Services (AWS), but with all the good, businesses must also face the bad. This is according to a new report from threat detection and response company Vectra AI, which says that the rise of cloud means greater complexity and more security blind spots.

Basing its conclusions on a poll of 317 IT executives using AWS, most of which came from organizations with at least 1,000 employees, Vectra AI says 64 percent of DevOps respondents are deploying new workload services weekly, if not faster. Almost four in five (78 percent) are running AWS across multiple regions, and 71 percent are using more than four AWS services.
