Cloud. It's the land of opportunity. Enterprises are doing mass migrations from older and legacy systems to harness greater power and efficiency from innovative new tech. Following that money trail are opportunistic attackers, seeking the computing strength and near-invisibility afforded by enterprise cloud environments to mine bitcoin. Cryptominers are everywhere. And yes, Virginia, they are in the Cloud. These nebulous power-rich realms let attackers set up mining rigs to feast on enterprise resources, while flying below the detection of cloud or conventional security resources. The concern here is that once attackers gain access to our networks, they can pivot and move laterally, to find even greater reward in the vast amounts of data available.
