As a result of the widespread adoption of public and private cloud, companies must rethink their network security strategies. While it’s tempting to think that you can just leave cloud security to your cloud provider, it’s too important not to play an active role in securing your resources in the cloud. Think of it like this, would you leave your on-prem network security up to the company that physically built your infrastructure? No, you invest in dedicated security tools like NGFWs, IPS, WAFs, and more to secure, detect, and protect your network from intrusion. A similar strategy must be replicated in the cloud.
