Summary : Servers contain an organization’s most valuable assets and underpin its operational capabilities. These are the ultimate targets of many cybercriminals. Yet strategies for defending them often rely on client-grade technologies like AV and EDR. This exposes the enterprise at a time when many companies are migrating workloads to the cloud. Gartner’s model for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms offers insights on the must-haves and nice-to-haves of server protection, on-prem and in the cloud. It also points to ways of safeguarding them from unknown attacks by using deterministic technology like moving target defense.
