New cloud security technology
April 2018, This Week's Editor's Pick, Cyber Security, Security Services & Risk Management

It is clear to see that enterprise cloud adoption is accelerating, enabling greater business agility and efficiencies through both deployment of hybrid cloud infrastructures, like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and VMWare NSX, and migration to cloud-based applications such as Microsoft Office365, Google G-Suite, Salesforce, ServiceNow, Slack, Box, Dropbox, Egnyte and more.

However, as cloud adoption continues to rise, so are the attacks targeting cloud services. For example, we are also seeing an increase in multi-vector attacks on cloud workloads and cloud applications, including malware, as well as increasing incidences of account hijacking. According to Check Point research, half of all breaches of enterprise SaaS applications are the result of account hijacks.

It is evident that we have moved past a threshold where the traditional security approaches don’t fit with the dynamic nature of the cloud, leaving businesses exposed to a whole host of new threats. In 2017, unprecedented levels of cyberattacks played out as large-scale, multi-vector mega attacks that inflicted major damage on business and reputation. As a result, we find ourselves in the midst of the fifth generation of cyberattacks.

To succeed in business now, we must evolve to a new generation of cybersecurity: Gen-V hackers are exploiting the fact that most organisations rely on older generations of security. As the sophistication and scale of attacks has grown, previous generations of security, which merely detect, are no longer effective. What’s needed is advanced real-time threat prevention that protects all networks, virtual, cloud, remote office and mobile operations.

Check Point has introduced CloudGuard SaaS, protecting enterprises against cyberattacks on SaaS applications. CloudGuard is a part of the Check Point Infinity architecture, built to provide comprehensive Gen-V cyber protection for the cloud. CloudGuard SaaS also prevents account hijacking, using patent-pending ID-Guard technology. Key security features include:

Zero-day threat protection: Prevents APTs and unknown zero-day malware from infecting content in SaaS applications using real-time sandboxing, ransomware protection, anti-bot technologies and real-time cloud-based threat intelligence.

Identity protection with ID-Guard (patent-pending) technology: Identifies and blocks threat actors or impostors to access SaaS accounts, and blocks unauthorised users and compromised devices.

Data protection: Automatically forces encryption of sensitive data, and blocks and quarantines unauthorised sharing of sensitive files.

With the shared ownership of assets in the cloud between cloud provider and end-user, knowing who is responsible for security is often unclear, and can lead to additional confusion. CloudGuard is focused on advanced threat prevention and keeping enterprise cloud applications, infrastructure and data protected from Gen-V cyberattacks.
