Aporeto Launches Security Solution for Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Applications

Grazed from Aporeto

Aporeto today announced the launch of the first Zero Trust Security solution for the enterprise based on finely-tuned application identity, context and intent. The solution continuously monitors and protects applications, by replacing network security based approaches with a radically simple identity and authorization system.

Aporeto's security is decoupled from the infrastructure and network; the solution transparently binds to applications to provide them with identity and protect them according to their context and operations intent using end-to-end cryptographic techniques. This approach is underpinned by the "zero trust" principle that assumes that any part of the infrastructure can be compromised at any given time. In contrast, the common approaches of security products are to provide static, infrastructure-dependent protection that must constantly be reconfigured to address application needs.

Enterprise Cloud Data Management leader, Informatica, is using Aporeto as the company continues to deliver and grow its portfolio of data management solutions as cloud services.

Why Small Businesses Need Cloud Security MORE than Big Businesses

Article Written by Avery Phillips

Cyber security is one of the biggest threats to small business we have right now. Of course, big businesses deal with a lot of cyber security threats as well. But the difference is a giant and established business can take a hit from cyber security threats more so than smaller businesses who may not have all of the resources to recover, or the finances. 

The cloud has without a doubt changed the way we store and safeguard our information, but with new opportunities come new threats. Here are some ways that cyber security applies to small businesses and affects them in the most crucial ways, even in the age of the cloud and increased cyber security. And it may be a bigger deal for you small business owners than the corporate giants.

Skyhigh Targets Cloud Adoption Challenges With Three Breakthrough Cloud-Native Data Security Innovations

Grazed from Skyhigh

At the company's first-ever livestreamed Cloud-Native Data Security Summit at 10 a.m. PDT today, Skyhigh, the cloud security company, will unveil three innovations that enable organizations to protect data in the cloud. These new breakthroughs aims to solve unique security challenges that the scale, speed and user-centric nature of the cloud present, and thus enable organizations to leverage the power of cloud to accelerate their businesses.

Data is an organization's most valuable asset. As organizations strive to identify, control and protect data in the cloud, and a world in which traditional network-centric security technologies become less relevant, they must reframe their security strategy to focus on securing data natively in the cloud. This is the foundational premise of Skyhigh's Cloud-Native Data Security (CNDS) framework.

"Today, we are in the age of cloud. And within the persistent ebb-and-flow of information, security needs to empower IT to provide data protection without disrupting the breakneck speed of modern business," said Mauro Loda, Chief Cloud Security Architect, DuPont. "With a CNDS approach, we can enforce security policies like data loss prevention (DLP), rights management, data classification, threat protection and encryption through a single security platform designed in the cloud, for the cloud."
