There's a common saying that the cloud is "just somebody else's server". While there's an element of truth in that statement, it overlooks the fact that the cloud as we know it today is transforming the way companies do business. It allows large companies enormous flexibility in facilities and finance. It allows small companies the ability to adapt and compete in ways undreamed of just ten years ago, without massive amounts of capital. So why are we overlooking the opportunity to re-think the way we approach network and application security, and instead drag along the worst of our habits from the old world to the new?
This talk is about those bad habits, and how Microsegmentation can give you a whole new way to look at and solve your security and compliance concerns in the cloud, as well as your existing datacenter.
