Techniques to Defeat Malware Attacks Against Multi-Cloud Environments
In the past five years, Linux has become the most common operating system in multi-cloud environments and powers more than 78 percent of the most popular websites. This has not gone unnoticed by malicious actors who have quickly taken advantage of weak authentication, vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in container-based infrastructures to infiltrate the environment with remote access tools (RATs), and once in, deploy ransomware or cryptomining tools.

Current malware countermeasures are mostly focused on addressing Windows-based threats, leaving many public and private cloud deployments vulnerable to attacks that target Linux-based workloads.

As attacks targeting the cloud continue to evolve, how can organizations mitigate the growing threat that ransomware, cryptomining, and RATs have on multi-cloud environments?

Discussion topics will include:

  • Understanding the malware targeting Linux-based systems
  • How to gain complete visibility into all workloads
  • Techniques to mitigate threats to multi-cloud environments

Join ISMG's Tom Field for a moderated discussion that will feature insight from Chad Skipper, Global Security Technologist for the VMware Network and Advanced Security Business Group.
