Building an Open Cloud Platform

Presented by

About this talk

Enterprise IT environments are getting exponentially more complex with the booming adoption of cloud computing. To attain seamless security and compliance, the key is to shift to open cloud platforms that interoperate with each other. This new model allows organizations to build security natively into their IT infrastructure, and to take a risk-based approach supported by an always updated global IT asset inventory. It’s the only way to have the scale, speed, accuracy, visibility and context needed to protect today’s hybrid and dynamic IT infrastructures. As IT teams embrace cloud services, mobility, containers, DevOps and other innovations, the job of security teams gets harder, especially if they have a heterogeneous stack of tools that are difficult and costly to deploy, integrate and manage. With such a siloed and fragmented toolset, visibility into the IT environment narrows, tasks can’t be automated, false positives abound, and security teams struggle to detect and respond quickly to threats. With an open cloud platform, organizations can replace their stack of legacy point solutions with a set of natively integrated, cloud-based security and compliance applications and services. The open platform has also offer a true risk-based approach to security, continuously balancing technology risks with business context.
