The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons:

1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations.

2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.
