Cloud security

What is cloud security?

  • Solutions vary from simple usage monitoring and security exposure rating to very specific enterprise security policy enforcement.

Why it matters

  • As Cloud adoption and Multi-Cloud deployments spread exponentially, organizations are faced with unmanaged security risks and data exposure.
  • Organizations will need solutions for a single pane of glass security operation in their Cloud and hybrid environment.
  • Compliance with data privacy regulations and other legal rules will also require better Cloud security testing and continuous compliance monitoring/control.
