What is Cloud WAF?

A cloud WAF is also known as a cloud-based WAF or cloud-native WAF and it provides web application security more cost-efficiently than traditional appliance-based web application firewalls while offering some distinguished advantages. Cloud-based WAF services offer more responsive, elastic, and customizable application security options based on predefined security policies that scale and react automatically to threats per application or tenant.

Kubernetes Application Security and Serverless Platforms

A lot of people aren’t aware of the nature of the term “serverless” and to understand the gravity of the forecasts mentioned in this article, understanding the nature of serverless is important. The nature of serverless computing framework is basically to abstract applications at a much higher level to provide portability, resource utilization and cost benefits. In an ideal situation, after developers have checked in code, a serverless computing framework will take control of the pipeline from build, ship, to run enabling users to easily scale and manage applications. As compared to the usual existing container framework, serverless is advancing much further in abstraction. It automates and responds to everything needed for running these services. All these are important for the rapid evolution of cybersecurity and tech in the next four years . Many of the forecasts of cybersecurity and tech  also revolve around the role of Kubernetes, which is an open-source container-orchestration system for automating computer application deployment, scaling, and management.

Apple encrypts its iCloud data on Google, AWS clouds

The cloud market has seen an exponential increase in 2020 and this trend was observed amid the steepest economic contraction in modern history. Therefore, it may not come as a surprise that Apple, a major player in the cloud industry, has emerged as Google’s largest customer of cloud data services, according to a report. Another report states that Apple spent $300 million for Google cloud storage services in 2021 alone, a 50% increase from last year. Even though this seems like a big amount, it is worth it. According to Law Floyd, director of cloud services at Telos, using Google Cloud makes sense as it is exponentially faster and cheaper, as opposed to obtaining more data centre space, power, cooling, and equipment.
