The remote working order, which has increased with the effect of the pandemic, has revealed new security risks while rapidly growing cloud services. There is a need for new generation solutions that will secure the cloud infrastructure against cyber attackers. Cyber security distributor Axoft, which has recently increased its investment in Turkey, announced that Aqua Security, which specializes in cloud security, will offer its solutions to companies in our country.
While the cloud computing market is growing rapidly with the effect of the pandemic, especially employees who switch to remote working order and access their companies’ files and applications through cloud services open the door to cyber attacks. According to Report Linker’s estimations, in the cloud computing market, which is expected to reach 623.3 billion dollars in 2023, cyber security attacks increase not only in number but also in scope and complexity, while potential risks in cloud environments, which are increasingly used, pave the way for new security attacks. Research reveals that 90% of companies, or 9 out of 10 companies, are vulnerable to security breaches due to incorrect cloud configurations. This picture, which is similar in Turkey, highlights our country as an important investment route for cyber security companies. Finally, Russia-based cyber security distributor Axoft, which expanded its investments in our country by opening an office in Istanbul last May, announced that it has now shaken hands with Aqua Security, the world’s leading cloud cyber security initiative.
