Rising cloud threats demand advanced AI-driven defenses: Check Point’s 2024 report

0 31

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. today unveiled its 2024 Cloud Security Report. The report exposes a critical surge in cloud security incidents, marking a significant increase from 24 percent in 2023 to 61 percent in 2024, highlighting the escalating complexity and frequency of cloud threats.

The latest survey from Check Point reveals a concerning trend: while most organisations continue to prioritise threat detection and monitoring, focusing on known vulnerabilities and patterns of malicious behavior, only a mere 21 percent emphasise prevention. This is particularly alarming as companies struggle to keep pace with rapid technological advancements, including the speed of DevOps and the deployment of new codes and applications in the cloud.

The survey underscores a daunting reality— although cloud attacks are on the rise, only four percent of organisations disclosed that they are able to mitigate risks easily and quickly. An overwhelming 96 percent have expressed concern about their ability to handle such risks. In addition, 91 percent of respondents are alarmed by the surge in more sophisticated cyber threats, including unknown risks and zero-day attacks, which cannot be detected using conventional security tools.

The data speaks volumes about the urgent need for organisations to shift their focus towards implementing AI-powered threat prevention measures,” states Itai Greenberg, Chief Strategy Officer at Check Point Software Technologies. 

“By adopting a consolidated security architecture and enhancing collaborative security operations, businesses can preemptively tackle emerging threats, ensuring a more secure and resilient cloud environment,” he added.

Other insights from the 2024 Cloud Security Report:

Escalation of cloud incidents: There has been a near 40 percent increase in cloud security incidents compared to last year, with 61 percent of organisations reporting significant disruptions.

Deep concerns over risk management: An overwhelming 96 percent of respondents reported concerns about their ability to effectively manage cloud risks, reflecting a considerable escalation from previous years.

Rapid adoption of AI technologies: With 91 percent of organisations now prioritising AI to enhance their security posture, the focus has shifted towards leveraging AI for proactive threat prevention.

CNAPP for enhanced prevention: Despite the growing threat landscape, only 25 percent of organisations have fully implemented Cloud Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPP). This underscores the urgent need for comprehensive solutions that go beyond traditional tooling.

Complexity in cloud security integration: Despite the potential for streamlined solutions, 54 percent of respondents face challenges in maintaining consistent regulatory standards across multi-cloud environments. Additionally, 49 percent struggle with integrating cloud services into legacy systems, often complicated by limited IT resources.

The report advises organisations to embrace a more comprehensive, collaborative, and AI-driven cybersecurity framework. Check Point CloudGuard offers actionable security and smarter prevention, effectively strengthening the overall security posture. CloudGuard is part of the Check Point Infinity Platform, which allows organisations to centralise and automate security processes, compliance, and rule sets, thereby enhancing visibility and control over cloud environments.
