Logicalis US to CIOs: Time to Take an Advanced Approach to Cloud Security Threats

Solution Provider Offers Enterprise Cybersecurity White Paper, “Security at the Speed of Cloud”

NEW YORK, December 13, 2016 – Headlines about hacking and malware prove that traditional security methods are not up to the task of protecting organizational infrastructures and data from theft and ransomware. As more organizations embrace cloud-first platforms for everything from customer relationship management (CRM) to enterprise resource planning (ERP) platforms and beyond, they place themselves increasingly at risk from cybercrime. That’s why Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), is advocating a next-generation approach to cloud security that reaches beyond the data center to multi-cloud environments. Logicalis security experts have identified five things an advanced threat approach for cloud security must provide and have included them in a new downloadable white paper, “Security at the Speed of Cloud: Advanced Threat Approach for Cloud Security.”

“The threats to enterprise security are real and increasing in their complexity and frequency. Today’s enterprise – and the digitally-enabled enterprise of tomorrow – requires a different approach that is up to the task of responding to the increasing cloud demands of customers while providing the highest levels of digital security,” says Jason Malacko, Manager, Security Practice Relationships and Offerings, Logicalis US.

Five Things an Advanced Threat Approach for Cloud Security Must Provide

An advanced threat approach for cloud security must address the full lifecycle of the advanced malware problem facing today’s enterprises. Here are five things an advanced approach must deliver:

  1. Integrated Architecture: Security modules must work together, not reside in independent silos.
  2. Superior Visibility: It must provide comprehensive insight with automated methods of determining risk and impact.
  3. Ability to Stop Threats: An advanced approach should be able to block existing known and new threats.
  4. Comprehensive Control: It must control what data is available, to whom it is available, and from where data access is provided.
  5. Predictive Activity: An advanced threat approach must measure baseline activity and be aware when suspicious activity is occurring.
