Cloud Security Blind Spots: Detecting and Fixing Cloud Misconfigurations

Published by Palo Alto Networks

At first glance, identifying and fixing security gaps in a cloud architecture may not appear very different from doing the same for on-premises environments. Most of the deployment technologies that run in the cloud, such as virtual machines (VMs) and containers, also run on-premises. In addition, modern management tools typically support cloud-based and on-premises environments equally well.

Yet even if the deployment processes and tooling for cloud environments look basically the same as those of on-premises infrastructure, there are a variety of nuanced differences that can be easy to overlook. If you fail to appreciate and account for them, these misconfigurations can cause security blind spots in your cloud architecture.

We’ve designed this guide to help organizations identify the cloud security blind spots they may be overlooking within their cloud environments. It walks through a number of common configuration oversights that affect cloud infrastructures, explains why they can lead to serious vulnerabilities, and offers tips for designing cloud architectures and technology stacks that protect against the risk of misconfiguration.
