MixMode’s VP of Engineering, Jeff Behl, discusses the limitations of cloud security solutions that come “out of the box” from cloud providers like AWS. While initially, the rules-based solutions do provide a level of security, Behl warns about the challenges of zero-day attacks as well as the overwhelming amount of alerts that fatigue security teams. 

“Rules can inundate the end users with too much data,” Behl says. “So, you have a thousand rules, that sounds more secure in your system, it’s probably not. Why? Because it’s generating a thousand times more information if not more. It’s going to overwhelm the people in the back-end, they’re going to get fatigued from it, and it’s going to put you in a more dangerous spot.”
