The adoption of the public cloud is remarkable, but along with this rapid growth comes new security risks. As you evaluate options for ensuring cloud compliance and security, discussions around repurposing legacy data-center security, building your own security and compliance option, or buying a cloud- native security product are top-of-mind. The reality is, these options are ineffective and do not comprehensively address the most common and pressing cloud security challenges. To better understand the benefits, costs, issues and risks associated with implementing cloud threat defense, Palo Alto Networks surveyed its RedLock customer base to understand the specific areas of savings and cost avoidance. Read this report for an overview of how RedLock can reduce financial risks due to security breaches, third-party tools and labor requirements to resolve issues faster; provide security governance and increase cross-team visibility such as asset management; and easily generate compliance reports that map and provide audit trails for your cloud resources.
