Understanding ‘Man in the Cloud’ Attacks

Already widely adopted by enterprises, use of cloud file sharing services such as Office 365, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box and Google Drive is on the rise. As adoption increases, so does the motivation for attack. The Imperva Application Defense Center (ADC) recently announced new research on a new type of attack we call “Man in the Cloud” (MITC). These attacks rely on common file synchronization services as their infrastructure for command and control, data exfiltration and remote access. Without using any exploits, a bad actor can turn them into a devastating attack tool undetected by traditional security measures.

Join Imperva CTO Amichai Shulman and Frank Cabri, Vice President of Marketing for Imperva Skyfence, to learn about:

* Cloud file sharing application trends, adoption and risk
* The anatomy of a MITC attack and how to identify it
* How traditional endpoint and perimeter security measures are insufficient to protect against these threats
* Recommendations for securing and protecting cloud apps and data
