Massive Adoption of SaaS and Cloud Services Cause Security Challenges

#artificialintelligence

The global revenue from SaaS and Cloud services market is projected to grow by 6.3% in 2020, according to Gartner. The SaaS and Cloud services economy is so volatile currently that it is hard to exactly pinpoint to the factors attributing to this kind of growth. However, with companies switching their global operations to remote workplace management, Cloud and SaaS services companies have a big challenge to tackle in the middle of an ongoing pandemic -- the growing security concerns targeting Cloud and SaaS services. According to a recent survey by AppOmni, the security concerns of cloud SaaS applications have become more essential for enabling remote workers. More than 200 IT security professionals were surveyed, and two-thirds (66%) of organizations believe that their enterprise public SaaS application, above all others, would cause the greatest disruption to their business should there be an outage.

A new report from cybersecurity company Vectra has highlighted the top ten threats their customers face when using Microsoft Azure AD and Office 365. The list in the "2021 Q2 Spotlight Report: Top 10 Threat Detections for Microsoft Azure AD and Office 365" is topped by O365 risky exchange operations, Azure AD suspicious operations and O365 suspicious download activity. Between January and March, Vectra saw a startling increase in detections centered on attackers trying to manipulate Exchange in order to gain access to specific data or further attack progression. More than 70% of Vectra's customers triggered that detection per week, according to their data. More than 60% of Vectra customers also triggered weekly detections of abnormal Azure AD operations, meaning cyberattackers may be escalating privileges and performing admin-level operations after regular account takeover. O365 accounts downloading unusual numbers of objects was also high on the list of detections caught weekly, followed by other issues with O365 related to suspicious sharing activity and external team access.


AiThority Interview with Matthew Sappern, CEO at PeriGen

#artificialintelligence

I am the CEO of PeriGen. I came here from an EMR company because I knew there was more that technology could deliver to clinical care than was happening in the EMR space at the time. PeriGen was challenged by the pandemic in that our business requires consultative meetings to design, educate and measure the efficacy of our software. Our clinical and technical leads were able to create virtual programs for all of these requirements by creating personalities or avatars that operated on tablets, which we then shipped to our customers. We not only gained some efficiencies, but our customers also found this remote solution to be very efficient.
