could compromise the security of your cloud environment consist of both
universal and cloud-specific risks. If you examine the Cloud Security Alliance report on
the 12 biggest threats to cloud computing, it includes elements such as system
vulnerabilities and malicious insiders. Security issues such as these two
examples have been prevalent in non-cloud computing environments for decades.
Although some stated cloud security issues may be universal, you still need to
follow industry best practice to ensure your environment is secure. Even though

Token authentication and URL signing are technologies which help you secure your CDN content. Using these authentication solutions, you can ensure only legitimate users or services are authorized to access and download the content you have placed on your CDN. Typically, web asset administrators use this type of solution to prevent the hotlinking of material, in which a third-party site or service uses your web assets without permission. This unauthorized access can result in your CDN costs increasing or [...]

When the internet was fairly new, users learned that all website URLs started with http:// followed by the website address. Today, browsers automatically add this part of the URL, so there’s no need to type it. Because of that, some people don’t even realize that many URLs now start with HTTPS instead of HTTP. What’s the difference, and does it matter? In many cases, it’s actually very important that the website URL shows HTTPS.
Hypertext Transfer Protocol, or HTTP, is [...]
When using technologies like caching and multi-node distribution, a content delivery network (CDN) can significantly reduce a website's load time. Rather than serving data from a single static server, it serves data from a network of servers to reduce congestion and improve performance. With data stored on multiple servers, though, you might be wondering about CDN security.
CDNs work by caching online content -- websites or apps -- on multiple servers and prioritizing its delivery based on the client's geographic [...]
