    Five Burning Security Issues in Cloud Computing-

    Protecting tenants from each other

    Bad guys can purchase cloud just like you. Who is keeping watch inside the cloud environment to protect your data from threats?

    Form of remediation: You can deploy security tools that protect your servers deployed in the cloud. Web Application Firewalls detect and prevent server-based attacks, even if they originate from within the same cloud architecture. Also, future deployments of software-defined networking (SDN) will allow providers to use the network to find attacks as well. Security technology developed to work with any SDN controller can look for suspicious traffic and redirect it for remediation while allowing clean traffic to follow the normal path through the network.

As companies accelerate their adoption of cloud technologies – like infrastructure as a service (IaaS) or software as a service (SaaS) – the need for solutions that provide secure access and reliable operations in the cloud increases in importance. A top area of concern is defending applications from distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Any plan to move to the cloud should include a plan for dealing with the pervasive and growing threat that DDoS present. In this slideshow, Bill Lowry, director of cloud services at Radware, takes a look at some of the burning issues you should look for when adopting a DDoS mitigation strategy for a cloud-based solution.
