The threat landscape continues to expand as both the frequency and the financial impact of cyber security incidents increase. As a result, traditional host-based security evolves to counter new attack vectors and types of infections. On rare occasions however, two separate, independently evolving technologies can come together in a way that benefits both – and so it is, with host-based intrusion detection systems (IDS) and the cloud.
A lot has happened in the world of DevOps and Security this week. Here are the top posts we saw around the community:

For decades, Intrusion Detection System (IDS) technology struggled to deliver efficient, high quality intrusion monitoring, and is only now experiencing success with the arrival of an unintentional enabling partner technology – cloud computing.
