About this talk

90% of cloud runs on Linux, but current countermeasures are focused on addressing Windows-based threats, leaving multi-cloud deployments vulnerable to attacks. So, is it any wonder that malware is propagating in multi-cloud environments under the radar? Based on research conducted by VMware's Threat Analysis Unit, this webcast uncovers the unique characteristics of remote access tools (RATs), ransomware, and cryptominers on Linux-based systems and how you can mitigate these threats. You will learn more about: - Existing characterization techniques and how to protect against more sophisticated malware - Ransomware and cryptominer families that target Linux-based systems following their evolution and cross-pollination - How to fight back against these threats with a combination of approaches, policies, and mechanisms
