Cyber attacks have exploded over the past few years. And seeing as the average cost of a company data breach is $3.62 million, it’s no wonder businesses are bolstering their cybersecurity measures. Besides the financial hit, attacks put confidential data at risk and shake customer confidence. Bottom line: it’s all bad for the bottom line.

Cloud Cybersecurity

Cloud cybersecurity refers to the tools, data and infrastructure that protect cloud-based products from malicious actors. These cybersecurity protocols work in unison to prevent bot attacks, manage identities and secure all apps within an enterprises’ ecosystem.

Cloud servers offer a heightened inherent level of data safety compared to traditional servers, which helps explain why the cloud has become an extremely popular choice for stashing and safeguarding that data. Even so, cloud cybersecurity measures must still be taken in order to maximize protection.

Below are 17 companies that are all about enhancing cybersecurity for the cloud.
