As you can imagine, your security decisions now have huge implications on the likelihood of closing enterprise deals. Join us for a discussion on what enterprises look for when vetting possible tech vendors and the best practices to start implementing so that you stand out against your competition. We’ll also introduce you to vendor security questionnaires: the tool that most enterprises use to weed out their most secure tech vendors from the most risky.

Beyond Unification: How CNAP Should Reduce Cloud Security Risk


By now, every security team understands that unification is the first step to securing their workloads in the cloud. Disparate niche solutions are impossible to manage, with differing security needs at different points in the cloud tech stack and for different types of microservices at different points in the SDLC. Unification can’t be the end goal, though, because cloud security teams are still struggling with alert fatigue, friction with DevOps and manually trying to prioritize where their attention and remediation is required. In this webinar, we will examine how to reduce cloud security risk and eliminate existing complexity in the cloud, by using smarter unification tools that can help security professionals reduce risk in the cloud and DevOps teams to remain empowered and agile. In this webinar you will learn: How to pull business objectives into the security alert prioritization process Why establishing an asset's effective security policy in the cloud is critical to risk elimination How to eliminate friction with DevOps teams and turn your organization’s security into an innovation enabler
