Abnormal Outbound Network Traffic

Early detection requires more than monitoring what comes into the network; it is also about seeing what is leaving the network and applications. Unusual traffic patterns leaving a network or exiting an application are among the most telltale signs that something is awry. Compromised systems often call home to command-and-control servers, and IT staff members can catch this traffic pattern before any real damage is done.

With ever-increasing sophistication and frequency of attacks, rapidly detecting signs of breaches and insider activities is critical for any enterprise. According to recent research by IBM and Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a data breach for a company has increased 23 percent over the past two years, costing $3.79 million.

Cloud applications with a black-box approach are particularly challenging for enterprises to secure. Hence, enterprises are constantly looking for breadcrumbs or early warning signs to get ahead of the game. Organizations need to ask themselves, "What are the telltale signs of a threat in the cloud?"

In this slideshow, Palerra has identified the top five key indicators of threats to cloud apps that organizations need to monitor (in no particular order).
