On this episode of Fiberside Chat, a 3-GIS podcast, host Daniel Litwin and guests Damion Harrylal, 3-GIS Solutions Engineer, and Keith Mokris, Director of Product Marketing for Prisma Cloud at Palo Alto Networks, got right to the point.
In the post-pandemic era, companies are operating in a landscape featuring more cybersecurity risk than ever before, and migration to cloud solutions is further opening enterprises up to bad actors looking to prey on hurriedly implemented systems.
The two guests gave the security of the overall cloud a “B” grade, though it came with a caveat. That grade is indicative of the tools cloud service providers offer, but newer organizations and less-experienced ones in keeping their interactions with the cloud safe may fall significantly short of that mark.
“The cloud is incredibly secure if you’re just looking at what the cloud service providers are delivering to their customers,” Mokris said. “But, when you look at how organizations or telcos are using the cloud, that’s when you might evaluate organizations based on their maturity and how they’re looking at the security of their applications and environments.”
