We discuss the shift from information security in the 1990’s to the cloud security of today. We look at how Dome9 protects company security at the network-level by being proactive and continuously monitoring and updating security practices to mirror the constantly changing cloud environment. Dome9 is a SaaS solution that helps security teams streamline their operations, management, and compliance across their cloud infrastructure. Traditional internal security teams at large enterprises are well-equipped for traditional networking, but these teams are not ready to keep public cloud infrastructures secure on their own. The rise of public security breaches is a result of hacking being a business now. People around the world are monetizing knowledge, which is why there have been so many public data breaches now from Yahoo to Target, Home Depot to the DNC. What we have learned from these breaches is the importance of leadership being transparent with customers when they happen and taking responsibility for the breach. Most instances we hear of come from cloud-related hacking of hosted environments the brands used. Hackers are trying every door and window to get into a brand’s system every second, and the only way to stop this is through continuous proactive security. We also talk about serverless computing such as AWS Lambda and what that means for security. With serverless computing, functions are triggered by a change, so the function observes until it sees something it can act on, and it is given the right permissions to act on its own and make a change to the API or the VPC. This presents many security challenges that customers are not fully aware of because permissions can easily be given out more than is required.
