The world continues to ramp up its technological footprint, which in turn creates more ways to access the Internet of Things (IoT) from home and work. More technology inevitably leads to more technological threats looking to take advantage of holes in network infrastructure. “Globally, there was a 776% growth in attacks between 100 Gbps and 400 Gbps Y/Y from 2018 to 2019, and the total number of DDoS attacks will double from 7.9 million in 2018 to 15.4 million by 2023,” according to Cisco’s Annual Internet Report (2018-2023).

The ability to offload computing resources to a trusted cloud partner has reduced capital expenditures and maintenance overheads for companies worldwide. There is also an assumption that cloud security prowess is automatically transferred to the subscriber’s systems when they migrate to the cloud. This can be true, but BUYER BEWARE, no system is truly hands-off when it comes to security. The reality is all systems, cloud or otherwise, need to be configured properly to ensure security risks are eliminated.
