IS SECURITY IN THE CLOUD GIVING YOU A HEADACHE?

What Security do you need in the Cloud

Networking in cloud environments can be more complicated than traditional physical environments due to the software defined nature of the networks and routing that form the back-bone of the cloud estates. This complexity though provides additional opportunities for segmenting traffic that is not easily replicable in on-premise environments. Cloud Network Security products allow you to layer security on your network layer all the way from your cloud edge through to micro-segmentation between individual applications.
