About the Webinar

Large and small organizations alike are increasingly turning to public cloud services for scalability, efficiency, and agility. To effectively leverage cloud services, organizations must understand their share of the cloud security model responsibilities and implement all guardrails effectively to ensure that their extended public cloud infrastructure is secure and compliant.

All large CSPs (Cloud Service Providers) provide a mix of native and third-party security tools to support their customer’s security needs. Often, organizations spend considerable resources upfront to procure and implement these security tools and services. However, the inadequate review processes, lack of automation, and misconfigurations of these tools and services can inadvertently expose your workloads to bad actors. As such, developing a comprehensive security strategy is quintessential to a secure and compliant cloud infrastructure.

A key part of that strategy should be to ensure that all preventative guardrails are planned and activated before proceeding with workload deployments on the public cloud infrastructure, which is what SixthUp’s Cloud Experts will be discussing in the webinar.

Ashish Choudhary – CEO, SixthUp, says – “With the rapid adoption of public cloud services going on these days, a comprehensive cloud security strategy is essential for organizations. Introducing security from the outset enables better business outcomes for organizations by helping them be agile, frictionless, scalable, proactive, and cost-effective. SixthUp has always believed in helping organizations realize the business value, speed, cost, talent, and innovation benefits of the Cloud, and this webinar is in line with our mission to make Cloud safer and secure for businesses.”

Chris Whitehead – Cloud Architect & Sr. Associate, SixthUp, states that – “Gartner recently predicted in April that the worldwide market for public cloud services will grow 23.1% in 2021. However, some organizations still have reservations about switching to the cloud due to security concerns. This webinar is meant specifically to educate businesses on the topic of cloud security, the steps they can take to alleviate their security concerns and to explain how a reliable cloud service provider (CSP) along with a sound security strategy can keep their data safe”.
