Digital Transformation is accelerating the adoption of cloud services and apps across the enterprise. With this rise of cloud, we see the “Dark Side of the Cloud” emerging to enable threats leveraging cloud services for various kill chain stages and an increase for data risks using cloud storage and services.
This report, based on anonymized data collected from the Netskope Security Platform across millions of users from August 1 through December 31, 2019, offers insights into how cloud-enabled threats and the shifts of sensitive data into and across the cloud are occurring and complicating the security posture of organizations.
