Navigating the COVID-19 disruption: Cloud can help with security and continuity

The unprecedented disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has forced many companies to retrench operations and adjust their business models to enable remote working, communication, and learning—while maintaining security. Those companies already in cloud are most likely able to adjust more easily than those who are still relying on on-premise systems that may be hard to access, support, or maintain. In this episode of the podcast, Mike Kavis and guest, Sumo Logic’s Ramin Sayar, discuss the disruptions that has pushed many companies to accelerate their journey to cloud. However, Ramin urges companies to focus first on security and business continuity with flexible, scalable architecture becoming the goal to operate effectively in a post-pandemic world.
