According to an analysis by the Atlas VPN team, among cloud service providers, Amazon Web Services (AWS) have seen the most number of cloud-native exploits during the first four months of 2022.
According to the statistics, AWS had 10 cloud-native exploits in the first four months of this year, accounting for over a fifth (18.9%) of all such events. Microsoft OneDrive, Discord, Dropbox, Google Drive and GitHub occupy the second place as each endured 9.4% of cloud-native exploits.
AWS owns a 33% market share, followed by Microsoft Azure (21%), and Google Cloud (10%). Cybercriminals are following consumers as they migrate to cloud technology, and they are focusing on the largest market players.
AWS had seen the greatest number of cloud-native exploits among cloud service providers as of April 2022, according to data provided by the Atlas VPN team data which is collected by Hackmageddon.
It saw 10 cloud-native exploits in total, which represents nearly a fifth (18.9%) of all such incidents in the first four months of this year. Cyberattacks that take advantage of the cloud at one or more kill chain stages are referred to as cloud-native threats.
The second spot on the list is occupied by a total of five services. In the first four months of 2022, Microsoft OneDrive, Discord, Dropbox, Google Drive, and GitHub each saw five threats, accounting for 9.4% of cloud-native exploits.
Pastebin comes next. As of April, threats against the service made up 5.7% of cloud-native vulnerabilities, with Microsoft 365 Suite and Azure following closely behind at 3.8% respectively.
As the cloud service provider that is most widely used, AWS also dominates the overall cloud market. AWS is the largest cloud infrastructure service provider, accounting for approximately one-third (33%) of all cloud infrastructure service providers, according to data from Finbold and Synergy Research Group for Q4 2021.
Microsoft Azure comes in second place as a target of cloud-native attacks this year. It holds 21%. Google Cloud, which has a 10% share, completes the top three list.
Due to the wide availability of numerous tools within a single application to distribute harmful information as well as the enormous amount of sensitive data they store, cloud services are a desirable target for cybercriminals. Given that market leaders have the largest user base, this is particularly true in their case.
