However, did you know that securing your data in cloud environments, such as AWS, Azure, and Google, is your responsibility? These public cloud providers keep your data safe from anything outside of their environment but there is nothing protecting you from within their environment.
More specifically, nearly all cloud environments have unstructured security controls; and many have less defined security controls than the on-prem servers because the application owners no longer have a security team protecting their perimeter. The ease of use and construction, in fact, are the reasons for this degraded security configuration; it obfuscates the responsibility, creating a false sense of comfort. Security is still your responsibility, and in all public cloud contract language, the end user is ultimately accountable for their own protection, just like in a traditional data center.
