Solving the modern cloud security conundrum with automation


Solving the modern cloud security conundrum with automation

Cloud Risk & Security

Cloud security is as complex as cloud itself. SaaS-based, data-driven security-automation platforms can help companies automate much of their cloud security process, enabling them to reduce complexity and focus more on their business.

Using SaaS-based automation to reduce cloud-security complexity

Cloud has become so complex, and new technologies are introduced and deployed so quickly, that it’s often difficult for companies to keep up with security demands. Savvy companies are turning to SaaS-based, data-driven security-automation platforms for help. In this episode, David Linthicum and guest, Lacework’s Scott Ford, discuss how automation is helping companies implement effective security processes in their complex, multi-cloud environments. Scott’s take is that it’s essential to automate and continuously update the security process, so companies can get the information they need to secure their cloud environments and re-focus their resources on innovation and growing their bottom line.

The challenge in cloud security is, number one, the complexity that seems to be arising around the use of many technologies, the ability to deal with automation effectively...within multiple platforms and multiple security environments.

Scott Ford is Lacework's principal architect for technology alliances and strategic accounts. He is an expert level DevSecOps practitioner experienced in the design and deployment of large-scale, code driven solutions for applications and infrastructure.
