Because they are open source, Linux servers have historically been treated as inherently secure. This is part of the reason 90 percent of cloud servers and 70 percent of web servers rely on Linux to operate and process critical business information.
Traditional options for safeguarding Linux servers are increasingly ineffective, however. With the Covid-19 pandemic inducing a mass shift to remote white-collar work, demand for cloud and web servers skyrocketed.
Threat actors noticed, vastly expanding the volume and sophistication of their attacks on Linux servers. Traditional signature-and behavior-based cybersecurity solutions such as next-generation antivirus and endpoint detection and response no longer protect organizations from advanced Linux cyberattacks. This has resulted in ever-expanding network breaches and ransomware attacks, despite these technologies being in place at the time of the attack. Download the white paper to learn:
