Cloud adoption is driving value into businesses like never before. Trying to manage security and compliance in the use of cloud platforms and applications, however, can drive stress and frustration into already overworked security teams. Sadly, turning off the cloud isn’t a viable option.

In this webcast, we will explain the importance of cloud adoption, and how cloud security platforms are enabling organizations to adopt transformative technologies without sacrificing the visibility or security of their critical information resources. We will also address some of the important questions to ask your provider to make certain the contract you sign protects your organization and your data.

Be sure to submit your questions and concerns for our presenters during the registration process.
