Public Cloud Security Technologies

Public cloud and the shared responsibility model present new risks and regulatory challenges to heavily regulated industries such as health and financial services. IT modernization demands the ability to bridge diverse functions and technical disciplines. DevOps, Cloud, modern application architectures and Cyber Security blur historical organizational boundaries and challenge legacy operating models.
