    Cybersecurity in the Cloud

    Presentation Title

    Secure Cloud Transformation with Internet Isolation

    Abstract

    The adoption of SaaS services is causing companies to rethink their security architecture as they move to the cloud. But what works on premises does not work in the world of cloud, and companies must fundamentally rethink how to secure their networks. Network isolation changes the game, and it can deliver 100% protection. This new approach must be a core component of the modern security architecture.
