The Practitioners Guide to Cloud Security

The Practitioners Guide to Cloud Security

Practiotioners Guide to Cloud SecurityThere are countless benefits to cloud computing including increased efficiency, streamlined processes and reduced costs. It also, however, threatens the security of your online services. Admins may leave ports open to connect to their servers while also giving access to hackers. Additionally, server sprawl deems security unmanageable. Worst of all, security solutions on the market today don’t have appropriate business models and/or technology that can migrate and scale.

In this presentation, Co-founder and CEO of Dome9 Zohar Alon will explain the need to:

  • Take responsibility for server security
  • Harden authentication
  • Use a Web Application Firewall (WAF) to protect web services, sites, and applications and monitor requests
  • Log and analyze insights
  • Lockdown and Automate Server Firewalls with Dome9

Find out how you can manage your OS and virtual firewalls, enable time-based secure access leases and stop attackers from targeting open admin ports.
