CIO/ CISO National Workshop

Secure your Digital Transformation by Securing your Cloud

Gartner states that, “Through 2022, at least 95% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.”

The cloud’s the limit. But don’t let security fears stop you from doing what is best to enable the business. The most significant step an organization can take to ensure appropriate levels of cloud security is for the corporate leadership to agree that cloud computing has become indispensable, and that it should be governed through planning and policy.

Let’s discuss:

  • How to ensure that your cloud deployments are properly configured as your digital transformation efforts move forward
  • How to get a real-time infrastructure visibility across your entire hybrid cloud network
  • The benefits of automating policy changes in the cloud to reduce misconfiguration errors

FireMon is the only agile network security policy platform for firewalls and cloud security groups providing the fastest way to streamline network security policy management, which is one of the biggest impediments to IT and enterprise agility.
