Clouds are tricky things. It’s hard to tell where the foundations of a cloud reside. You could point at the physical infrastructure. Some of the best side-channel attacks target hardware. There is the operating system that runs everything. And there is the middleware, billing, hypervisors, drivers and web front ends. The potential attack surface of a cloud service provider (CSP) or consumption market platform is gigantic. [Read More]

In the simplest terms, the cloud allows users to store and access data and programs on someone else’s hardware, usually over the internet, rather than using their local device or network resources. But it is much more than simply offsite storage. It also includes services that allow users to replicate some or all of their local environment, from running applications to designing complex infrastructures. And it needs to be able to scale to lots of users. Simply put, you do not have a “cloud” unless... [Read More]

Like data center sprawl, virtualization sprawl occurs when the numbers, locations, and functions of virtual machines distributed across a network grow to the point that they can no longer be managed effectively. As organizations continue to move applications and other core workloads into the cloud, virtualization sprawl can give way to “security sprawl” if not architected properly. In order to achieve the scale, elasticity, and efficiency benefits of the cloud, the data and security elements across all environments must be integrated,... [Read More]

Networks used by educational institutions benefit from being open and promoting a limitless flow of information and ideas. However, much like the student-teacher relationship, the user-network relationship is one that must be built on trust. The extent of personal information and intellectual data that is often housed on these networks requires a reliable cyber security platform. That’s where FortiSIEM enters the discussion. As an all-in-one platform, FortiSIEM provides networks with the opportunity to rapidly find and fix security threats,... [Read More]

One of the biggest security challenges organizations face is sorting through solutions from literally hundreds of vendors in the IT market to find the one that is going to provide them with the best protection at a cost they can afford. Each of these vendors claims to solve critical security issues, and they use volumes of white papers and marketing campaigns to promote their solutions. Of course, proper security is essential. As networks continue to expand and become more complex, organizations are increasingly reliant on effective... [Read More]

For many organizations, embracing the potential of the new digital economy involves migrating services, data, and infrastructure to the cloud. The cloud is a powerfully disruptive technology. It allows businesses to be more agile, responsive, and available than ever before by transforming traditional compute architectures and best practices that have been in place for decades. Most organizations today have some sort of a cloud strategy. Nearly all of them are adopting a hybrid cloud infrastructure that combines their private cloud with one or... [Read More]
