Why It’s Important
The partnership between Cado and Cosive is well-timed. IBRS expects more such partnerships as international security specialist vendors eye APJ markets.
Traditional cyber security tools and protocols designed for on-premises infrastructure are not fully equipped to handle the complexity of Cloud ecosystems. In addition, enterprises often have fragmented visibility into their cloud assets due to multi-cloud strategies or hybrid cloud and on-premises systems, making it difficult to effectively identify and address vulnerabilities or respond to incidents in real-time. This lack of visibility contributes to the persistent gaps in cloud incident response.
Forensic capabilities tailored to the Cloud environment offer granular visibility into data and activities that are otherwise difficult to monitor. This allows enterprises to track and analyse incidents more comprehensively, and gather actionable insights for both immediate response and future prevention strategies.
In addition, specialised Cloud forensics tools can adapt more quickly to emerging Cloud threats. Unlike traditional forensic tools which might require extensive modification to adapt to new environments or types of data, these solutions are built to be flexible and scalable, mirroring the Cloud environments they protect.
- Security analysts
- Incident responders
- Compliance officers
- Allocate resources to acquiring Cloud-specific forensic solutions that offer in-depth visibility and analytics for the enterprise Cloud environment. In addition, training sessions should be conducted to upskill the security and IT teams in the usage of these specialised tools, ensuring that they can operate them effectively during an incident.
- Periodically review Cloud forensic tools and strategies to ensure they are up-to-date. This could involve adapting to new cloud services, updating the tools to catch new forms of malicious activities, or revising protocols to incorporate lessons learned from past incidents.
