For many businesses, proper security is still a barrier to embracing cloud computing and taking advantage of the TCO, op-ex and efficiency benefits the cloud model promises.
Palo Alto Networks is tackling these challenges head-on, thanks in part to our just-announced integration with VMware NSX, which combines VMware’s network virtualization platform with our virtualized next-generation security platform and our Panorama centralized management software.
With this integrated approach, our virtualized next-generation security capabilities can be deployed in an automated manner and appropriate application traffic steered to our virtual platform without the hassle of constantly re-configuring the network.
We know that a more agile, more secure, more efficient data center environment is important to you – you told us so! Earlier this month, we conducted a survey about cloud infrastructure and security priorities, the results of which we’re pleased to share today.
Do any of these results surprise you? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.
