Event Details

Don't assume your Cloud is Enterprise Secure

When you deploy a solution in the Public cloud you need to ensure that it is secure and compliant. The service provider – Microsoft or AWS will only ensure security of the cloud, you are responsible for the security within the cloud – This Industry concept is called ‘Shared Responsibility’. You can also gain many cost savings and benefits with Advanced connectivity that can be delivered for Hybrid solutions.

How Redpalm and Barracuda will help
