Securing your cloud
Account credentials are a major cloud security issue because vulnerability scanners or penetration testing can’t determine if they’ve been compromised or if they’re being abused by attackers.
Compromised credentials become a problem when they are used. If someone shared cloud authentication credentials(for an example an employee left the company and never used the credentials, the organization might never discover the exposure).
Another example like multiple attempts to log in simultaneously from geographical locations could also compromise the cloud security according to experts.
