Detect security blind spots in your Azure cloud environment

Managing cybersecurity in 2024 has become the equivalent of wrestling a bear. It’s constant vigilance against a hefty opponent that doesn’t stop seeking out every vulnerability and blind spot. As the year unfolds, some clear trends are emerging within this space. Credential theft, phishing, misinformation, identity theft and ransomware remain the most prevalent forms of attack, putting organisations at risk from both within and without. According to the PwC 2024 Global Digital Trust Insights report, mega breaches are on the increase, as is the cost of these breaches – companies with more than $10 billion have revealed breaches of around $7.2 million.

In another report, identity threats and authentication attacks were responsible for 64% of threats with organisations experiencing an average of eight incidents throughout the year. The Google Cloud Cybersecurity Forecast 2024 predicted that zero-day vulnerabilities will increase to the point where they exceed their 2021 record as edge devices and virtualisation software are the most targeted.  Hybrid and multi-cloud environments will also come under hacker scrutiny as hackers look for gaps in their security – a particularly pressing concern in light of the complexities involved in curating and managing these environments.

Companies need smart ways of staying ahead of the hacks and attacks with tools that minimise the admin burden and support robust overall security hygiene. As security teams focus on education, training, awareness, patching and every other cog in the cybersecurity wheel, they need support from solutions designed to mitigate the risks while lifting the burden.
