On top of the list of resources that enterprises need to secure are networks, endpoints, and applications. However, another critical asset that enterprises should give careful security consideration to is their back-end infrastructure which, if compromised, could lead to supply chain attacks.

Normally, enterprises use endpoint- and network-based security solutions to protect their back-end servers and internal systems that store and process a considerable volume of valuable data. To optimize their operational costs, some enterprises move their back-end infrastructure to the cloud, or run their own on-premises private cloud using cloud-based solutions.
