I found some interesting statistics in this RedLock article that illustrate the severity of the cloud security problem:
- Only 7 percent of businesses have good visibility of all critical data, and 58 percent say they only have slight visibility. (ForcePoint)
- Vulnerabilities: 24 percent of organizations have hosts missing high-severity patches in the public cloud. (RedLock)
- More than three-fourths of security breaches (80%) involve privileged credentials. (Forrester)
- Almost half (49 percent) of databases are not encrypted. (RedLock)
It’s pretty depressing, considering that we have technology to solve each of these problems. What’s happening?
