Securing Application Infrastructure in Multi-Cloud Environments – A presentation from Webscale at RISK 2018

Software-Defined Web and Cloud controls – Securing Application Infrastructure in Multi-Cloud Environments

Web developers today often choose frameworks that are widely adopted because they are well documented, and have a large support community. Unfortunately, their popularity makes them a common target for hackers wanting to develop attacks to leverage their exploits. In the e-commerce vertical, these exploits can be particularly valuable as they can allow access to large amounts of data (financial, account credentials, credit card, PII, etc). Webscale analyzes billions of HTTP requests on a daily basis for application specific security threats. In this talk, we will walk you through a common attack pattern and discuss how, by leveraging the cloud and a powerful application and software-defined infrastructure control system, we can mitigate attacks and stop their spread through multi-cloud visibility across a community of applications.
