The ability to monitor for exceeded thresholds on reads is a critical element of security monitoring for enterprises.

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.

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).
