1. Key Insights: The Broader Environment
Cloud Security vs. Traditional Network Security
Network security stacks were designed to protect enterprise networks, not the cloud. They can’t provide
the comprehensive cybersecurity and cloud data protection today’s cloud-based applications and
mobile users need. To support business-critical SaaS apps (e.g., Microsoft 365) and handle other
bandwidth-hungry services as well as more network traffic without added costs or complexity, you need
a multitenant security platform that scales elastically. You’ll never get that with a traditional network
The best way to secure apps, workloads, cloud data, and users—no matter where they connect—is to
move security and access controls to the cloud. Cloud-based security is always up to date, able to
protect your data and users from the latest ransomware and other sophisticated threats.
A comprehensive cloud security platform builds in security services and cloud access controls that give
you visibility into all traffic moving across your distributed networks (cloud and on-premises). Through
one interface, you can gain insight into every request—by user, location, server, and endpoint device
around the world—in seconds. API integrations with other cloud service providers, such as those who
offer SD-WAN, cloud access security broker (CASB), IAM, and endpoint protection services, further
strengthen your security posture.
2. Key Insights: Industry Dynamics
Several reasons are there why enterprises and companies need cloud computing today! I have come up
with few points that will be helpful for giving reason:
•One of the major reason why huge number of small scale and large-scale business sectors from all over the
world are using cloud today, is because of tremendous effect on cost saving. Yes, Cloud computing has
made drastic change in the reduction of hardware and software cost and other server resources as well.
•We can run all our workload data of applications and processes online over the internet remotely instead
of using physical hardware and software.
•Day to day issues related to server maintenance or installation of software/ hardware or whether it is
renewal of license, all those factors are undertaken via cloud computing service providers.
•With the help of cloud, we can access any data, applications whenever and wherever we want to, over
the internet. 100 of pre-configured applications can be install and updated.
•Cloud not only handles data storage remotely, but it also protects and recovers all crashed or loss data, so
we don’t have to worry about crashed or loss of data, it gives you high security.
