Cloud usage is proliferating, throughout organizations and business of all sizes. Adoption of cloud technologies is increasing at a fast pace, whether it be public cloud, private cloud, or in most cases, hybrid cloud platforms.
Applications are the focus of all IT infrastructures, with more and more applications moving to the cloud as the IT world becomes more virtualized. As a result, network security must be aligned accordingly. Private and public cloud platforms offer clear benefits to enterprises such as increased agility and cost-effectiveness. However, moving to the cloud often exacerbates enterprise network security challenges, exposing enterprise IT to new vulnerabilities and cyber threats.
