Large organizations are actively developing cloud-based applications, embracing SDDC technologies, and moving production workloads to the public cloud. This strategy delivers benefits like lower cost, simpler operations, and accelerated application deployment but also has a profound impact on cyber security. Why? These emerging technologies aren't well understood and organizations often lack the right skills or controls to address cloud/SDDC risks or respond ro security incidents. Smart CISOs will address these gaps with security policies, controls, and monitoring that align current best practices with burgeoning cloud and SDDC security requirements. Check Point Software's vSEC offerings can help by providing broad infrastructure support, strong management, granular policy enforcement, and end-to-end traffic visibility across physical, virtual, cloud, and SDDC infrastructure.
