Public Cloud Security Represents a Massive Opportunity for NextWave Partners

Organizations adopt public cloud solutions for greater network agility and scalability, higher performance and faster access to innovative technologies, but they need help keeping their data secure. 451 Group predicts that by 2018, 60 percent of all workloads will reside in the public cloud while 91 percent of cybersecurity professionals have concerns about cloud security*. The top three challenges they face include protecting against data loss and leakage (67%), threats to data privacy (61%), and breaches of confidentiality (53%). Helping our mutual customers move to the cloud while addressing these challenges represents a massive opportunity for NextWave partners to provide their security expertise and position the benefits of our Security Operating Platform, which supports all major public cloud services, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, or GCP.
