The Inevitable Path to the Cloud

As the world-wide cyber-threat environment continues to evolve, organizations need to begin thinking differently about information security and the protection of their infrastructure. Specifically, the evolution from perimeter-centric, hardware based environments to virtualized data centers and the cloud.  As IT organizations are driven to transition their CapEx investments to OpEx spending, the economic efficiencies of virtualization through SaaS, IaaS and PaaS, provide a rational path to those goals.  From a security perspective however, security models that don’t sufficiently address workload and application-aware segmentation, lateral traffic visibility, and network-based threat detection of on-premises data center and public cloud-based environments leave a huge gap in the overall security posture. This talk will provide CIO's and CISO's struggling with decisions about migration to the cloud with some thoughts about how the cloud can be the catalyst that improves security while also reducing costs and technology footprint.
