Applications are the software within a cloud-based environment that provide different services and functions to the end-users. The communication between the application and the end-user is a vulnerable channel if not monitored.
Cloud Security is developing new aspects to guarding the communication between the applications and the end-users. Current technology focuses on sensors at the network and also some installed pieces within the App itself. Cloud Security is moving beyond this to create a new dimension in App Security. It is developing an artificial intelligence module on top of the sensors and monitoring stations. This module will create a preemptive state of alert and record data before and after any suspicious activity. It will also learn to save bandwidth and computing resources.
