As per Gartner, “The automation, programmatic infrastructure, and built-in security capabilities of leading IaaS providers enable enterprises to improve and scale the protection of public cloud infrastructure. Properly managed, security and risk management leaders can secure cloud better than their data centers.”
This in-depth, foundational report details key challenges slowing the adoption of cloud computing, along with recommendations and best practices for ensuring most secure cloud infrastructure.
“In a world of cloud-based users and devices accessing public cloud-based services, the relevance of the legacy enterprise perimeter declines. Identity is the new perimeter. Specifically, the identities of users, administrators, devices, workloads, services, APIs and containers become key to establishing policies and monitoring security and compliance. The built-in IAM capabilities of the cloud providers are the foundation for this.”
