Cloud Storage: a Growing Security Blindspot

81% of security leaders believe cloud storage apps are vulnerable to attack

Cloud storage solutions are amongst the most exposed applications within an organization, and must play a part in any security strategy.

Apps like OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive can be highly effective malware distribution platforms. Once malicious content is on the file sharing service, it can easily travel to any unsuspecting user with access.

Insider Threats

A malicious attack via cloud storage can come from within the organization. For example, an unhappy employee who uploads a malicious file to the company’s cloud storage.

Unmanaged 3rd Parties

A malicious file or URL can come from an external source such as a customer or supplier. For example, a supplier may (unknowingly) sync a malicious file with a shared folder used to transfer files on an ongoing basis.

Impersonation (Account Takeover)

An attacker may take over a legitimate account or insert himself into a message thread. In this case, the attacker can send an email with a link to a malicious shared file on the drive.

Fortify a CASB with Advanced Threat Detection

CASBs are designed for monitoring access and data leakage, and enforcing policies that will ensure controlled exposure of private and sensitive organizational information.

However, CASBs are not designed for threat detection, including the detection of malicious files, URL or social-engineering attempts, nor are they able to provide forensics on any such attacks. If an organization is only reliant on a CASB for their cloud security, they are likely still very exposed when it comes to cloud collaboration apps.


Real-time scanning of all files being uploaded, downloaded, edited or updated. Multi-layered platform detects zero days, n-days, phishing, impersonation and commodity malware.


Upon set up or at regular intervals, scan all historical files to ensure anything malicious is removed from the drive.


Deploy in one-click to any cloud storage app including OneDrive, Sharepoint, Dropbox, Box and Google Drive. Simply change a setting and you are connected.

Proven Results



“After deploying Perception Point’s email security, we realized we were still exposed to malicious content in our Google Drive and other internally developed messaging applications. Using the same solution, we simply added these channels in a few minutes. Now we can see all threats from one platform.”


“We rely heavily on Dropbox for sharing files inside and outside the organization, and we needed to supplement their built-in security. Perception Point is the only company we know of that can truly scan all of the files without any impact on our users.”

I have a CASB - doesn’t that secure my cloud applications?

CASBs are focused mostly on policy, so they provide an organization with visibility in terms of what applications are being utilized. CASBs see what is being used, but not the content passing through it.

How can cloud storage be leveraged to attack?

A malicious file can be stored on the drive through various means – an insider attack, a file received through another channel, or through an account takeover. Once a malicious file is on the storage, any unsuspecting user across that organization that opens it can be infected.

Do the cloud storage applications have built-in threat prevention?

While these apps do have some degree of protection, they do not prevent the sophisticated range of techniques that are becoming increasingly widespread.
