Cloud security is a critical component of nearly every business. This year’s 2022 AWS Cloud Security Report shows that 99% of organizations employ cloud resources, with 87% using two or more cloud providers. As cloud footprints expand, gaps in cloud security—and in employee skills and understanding across a proliferation of security dashboards—increase the risk of costly cyber-attacks. Organizations are looking for unified cybersecurity platforms that reduce complexity and automate compliance while improving visibility and control.
This year’s 2022 AWS Cloud Security Report, produced by Cybersecurity Insiders and sponsored by Fidelis Cybersecurity, reveals how organizations that use AWS are adapting to evolving cloud security threats and reducing operational complexity with new security strategies.
