Shifting security left for enhanced multi-cloud security

Part of the On Cloud Podcast series

Much of cloud security is done with a reactive posture. To improve security, that must change. To achieve a more proactive security stance, it's essential to shift security left to the app development phase.

Cracking the multi-cloud security puzzle by shifting security left

Multi-cloud security is one of the most difficult pieces of the cloud complexity puzzle to solve for. It’s also one of the most critical. In this podcast, David Linthicum talks with Deloitte’s Ramesh Menon about how shifting security left—i.e., implementing appropriate security during application development to solve issues before systems go live—can help companies move from a reactive to a more proactive security posture and increase the effectiveness of their security program.


We're empowering the developers to invoke security and leverage security in different ways that are going to be more productive because they're more specific to the applications and the data sets that we're securing.

Ramesh Menon, a managing director at Deloitte & Touche LLP, is responsible for the technology, vision, and development of the Cloud Native Security Products suite. He also leads the Cloud Security Policy Orchestration offering, a solution focused on "Shifting Security Left" within cloud environments.


Solving the modern cloud security conundrum with automation

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