To gain insight into this growing threat, Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 threat intelligence researchers analyzed data from a variety of public sources around the world. Additionally, they executed a red team exercise at the request of a large software-as-a-service provider against their cloud-hosted software development environment.

Unit 42’s findings, published in the recent Palo Alto Networks Cloud Threat Report, indicate that many organizations may still be lulled into a false sense of supply chain security in the cloud.

This report draws on Unit 42’s analysis of past supply chain attacks. It explains the full scope of supply chain attacks, discusses poorly understood details about how they occur and recommends actionable best practices that organizations can adopt today to protect their supply chains in the cloud.
