13 Jul Banyan Cloud states the era of innovative technological trends are the reason for the evolution of Cloud Native Applications
The evolution of Cloud Native Application emerges from the adoption of multi- cloud with the recent technological trends of micro services, containers, serverless, and DevOps tools.
The Cloud Native Applications shift the security focus from the infrastructure silos to the application workloads. Likewise, making security automation a part of the entire pipeline ensure that applications can be developed and deployed safely to runtime.
Insights of the Cloud Security
The transition to cloud platforms has built up with cyber security posture model where it shares a security responsibility with the cloud service providers. And the businesses are responsible for securing application workload and data with the ownership of cloud service configuration. There is a certain risk of quantitative data breaches and cyber threats. It’s crucial to visualise these threats and their consequences to guarantee the security and safety of the cloud.
The key factors contributing to Cloud security threats are misconfiguration of cloud resources, unauthorised access, and open-source software. The businesses continue to face challenges in implementing the security on cloud environments because of
the shadow IT and lack of observability of multi cloud security posture.
Monitoring applications and services for vulnerabilities are essential to prevent data breaches and regulatory non-compliance. Every business would be secure to run on continuous and automated security controls to minimise the risk and impact of cyberattacks against cloud-based resources. Being compliant with industry regulations followed by the proven best practices is a must for the businesses in the digital economy.

Attacks by themselves are also becoming more aggressive by global driven malicious Cyberthreat actors using ransomware are leveraging tougher pressure tactics as well as going after more vulnerable targets, impacting public utilities, healthcare systems
and data-rich companies.
