And cloud security should be a trending cybersecurity topic for 2018 because, as more organizations continue to bring cloud services into their business model, the risks increase. Hackers know you are using the cloud and they are going to target that vector more. For example, one cloud security trend I noted in recent months is that the cloud infrastructure is being used to spread malware to other cloud infrastructures. Your data stored in the cloud is likely more at risk than you realize, according to McAfee’s Cloud Adoption and Risk Report. One finding in the report is that your organization likely experiences about 12 compromised account threats per month. These compromised accounts give hackers access to the data you’ve stored in a cloud service. And this type of threat has increased over the past year, likely due to more companies using services like Office365.

My personal homelab has a very simple network topology, everything is connected to a single flat network. This has served me well over the years, but sometimes it can prevent me from deploying more complex scenarios. Most recently while working with NSX-T and Project Pacific, I had a need for additional VLANs which my home router does not support. There are a number of software solutions that can be used including the popular pfSense, which I have used before. Over the Winter break, a colleague introduced me to VyOS, which is another popular software firewall and router solution. I had not heard of VyOS before but later realized it was derived from Vyatta, which I had heard of, but development of that solution had stopped and VyOS is now the open source version of that software. Having never played with VyoS before, I thought this might be a good learning opopournity and started to dabble with VyOS over the holiday.
