Cloud Security 2.0: Taking an app, user, and data-centric approach.

The Saas market is exploding with an average of 715 cloud apps in use per enterprise. While increased cloud usage is generally a good thing for productivity, using the cloud can increase the probability of a major data breach by up to 3 times. Previous generation cloud security technologies were built to address a narrow set of use cases and often leave an enterprise vulnerable to the risks that come with using the cloud. Bob Gilbert, Netskope’s Chief Evangelist, will discuss the essential requirements for a comprehensive cloud security strategy and introduce next-generation technology that takes an app-, user-, data-centric approach to safely enabling the cloud.
