Malicious insiders has always been a big concern for security professionals in the traditional on-premises data center setting, but with more and more organizations moving some or all of their applications and data to the cloud, the very concept of “insider attack” takes on a new and much-broadened perspective.
One of the big concerns for both small businesses and enterprises, when moving to the cloud, is security. We all know that the traditional username-and-password method of authenticating logons is woefully lacking in a world where resources available over the Internet are constantly under attack. If an attacker can steal, guess or socially engineer a user into voluntarily revealing a password, it’s relatively easy to access systems and services and put a company’s data and applications at risk.
