Public Cloud Security Represents a Massive Opportunity for NextWave Partners

Organizations adopt public cloud solutions for greater network agility and scalability, higher performance and faster access to innovative technologies, but they need help keeping their data secure. 451 Group predicts that by 2018, 60 percent of all workloads will reside in the public cloud while 91 percent of cybersecurity professionals have concerns about cloud security*. The top three challenges they face include protecting against data loss and leakage (67%), threats to data privacy (61%), and breaches of confidentiality (53%). Helping our mutual customers move to the cloud while addressing these challenges represents a massive opportunity for NextWave partners to provide their security expertise and position the benefits of our Security Operating Platform, which supports all major public cloud services, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, or GCP.

Unit 42 Report - Ransomware: Unlocking the Lucrative Criminal Business Model
Ransomware, specifically cryptographic ransomware, has quickly become one of the greatest cyber threats facing organizations around the world. This criminal business model has proven to be highly effective in generating revenue for cyber criminals in addition to causing significant operational impact to affected organizations. It is largely victim agnostic, spanning across the globe and affecting all major industry verticals. Small organizations, large enterprises, individual home users – everyone is a potential target. Ransomware has existed in various forms for decades, but in the last several years criminals have perfected the key components of these attacks. This has led to an explosion of new malware families and has drawn new actors into participating in these lucrative schemes.
