Migrating workloads to Microsoft Azure is just the beginning of your cloud journey. A well-managed Azure environment should continuously improve, while maximizing ROI and security.
This white paper offers recommendations for optimizing your Azure environment from both a cost perspective and a security perspective.
For more than 20 years, many organizations have relied on Windows server as the operating system of choice for their workloads – but Microsoft is ending extended support and security updates for Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 on January 14, 2020, which is right around the corner.
GoldBrute is a botnet that conducts “credential stuffing” or brute force attacks on Windows machines with exposed RDP connections.
This blog provides a high-level explanation of a Defense in Depth strategy using a Castle Analogy to show how different security elements work together as critical components of a complete security solution.
As e-commerce expands rapidly and in-store checkout goes cardless, it's never been easier to get the products you need as quickly as possible. The flip side: cybercriminals have an ever-growing trove of personal and financial information within their reach.
We’re approaching the one-year anniversary of the ransomware attack that held critical City of Atlanta systems hostage, costing millions to fix. And although we don’t hear about high-profile ransomware attacks every day, they’re still a threat to government systems: in January, the city of Del Rio, Texas, suffered an attack that shut down city hall servers.
Atmosera, a leading Microsoft Azure cloud services provider, today announced two new products focused on uncovering customers’ existing network vulnerabilities and actively monitoring their systems for potential threats.
When you think of bank security, the vault is probably the first thing that comes to mind. All of your wealth locked behind a foot of steel and concrete. For decades, that was enough to protect a bank’s most valuable assets. Today, we’re managing a second vault: one filled with customer data, locked behind layers of encryption. The trouble is that today’s bank robbers aren’t working with dynamite, like in the westerns; they’re behind powerful computers.
Smartphone applications allow users to complete tasks in seconds that once required a visit to the bank, such as transfers and depositing paychecks. The cloud facilitates this increased activity, giving banks the computing power necessary to process millions of customer requests and payments through the application at any given moment. And by managing front-end functionality in the cloud, institutions gain an extra layer of security against growing cyberthreats.
According to a 2017 survey of financial services institutions, only 42 percent of respondents consider their organization effective or very effective at managing cybersecurity risks. Comparatively, 80 percent considered their organization effective or very effective in managing more traditional risk types, including liquidity, underwriting, and credit. Indeed, cybersecurity is the new frontier in risk management.
Cloud computing necessitates that businesses redefine their approach to information security, compliance, data back up, and disaster recovery, but there can be some confusion over what security concerns the cloud may pose for data protection. Adapted from Atmosera’s Chief Information Security Officer’s presentation at a SecureWorld conference, this article will attempt to dispel common myths about cloud security.
A year-and-a-half ago, as numerous countries dealt with WannaCry’s aftermath, ransomware was one of the hottest topics in retail IT—and all feared what would happen if their systems were suddenly held hostage. But even by the end of 2017, the security firm Malwarebytes found that ransomware attacks dropped off significantly.
The proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies continues to transform business operations and processes. The pace at which these devices appear increases at an astounding rate each year: at present, there are 23.14 billion IoT-connected devices online. By 2025, according to Statista, there will be 75.44 billion. It’s no surprise, then, that today’s manufacturers are more reliant on IoT technology than ever before.
It wasn’t long ago that the worst disasters a manufacturer had to fear were natural ones: fires, tornados or hurricanes. Machinery didn’t stop just because the internet went down. But like most industries, manufacturing is undergoing a massive digital transformation, driven by Industry 4.0 technologies such as IoT sensors and artificial intelligence.
Two executives from Atmosera, a leading Microsoft Azure cloud services provider, will offer sessions focused on cloud implementation during the 10th annual Cloud Expo, Nov. 12-13 at the Roosevelt Hotel, New York City.
