Read this use case for a real-world example of how a civilian government agency chose Palo Alto Networks Traps advanced endpoint protection to secure up to 10,000 workstations and servers and prevent ransomware attacks. In their evaluations, Traps performed better than both their existing antivirus and endpoint security products combined.
The cloud has evolved from a helpful business tool to reduce costs and speed the delivery of IT services to a strategic resource that allows organizations to do more with less and better utilize our valuable people resources. However, with more and more data – much of which deemed mission critical – created, stored, and managed in the cloud, bad actors will naturally take aim. It’s up to us to do more to secure our cloud digital transformation. In anticipation of more penetration attempts, cloud security will become more intelligent, more automated, and more discerning, driven by advances in AI, machine learning, quantum computing, and other transformative technologies.
The container ecosystem is complicated to understand given the plethora of new and esoteric tools, and the unique problems they solve when compared with the traditional platforms (such as virtualization).
