COMPANY NAME:SOFTWARE ONE/MICROSOFT

SUBJECT TRACK: Automating Cloud-Security Compliance

TITLE:   Enabling Cloud Transformations While Reducing the Attack Surface

SPEAKER: Prasanna Mulgaonkar, CEO and Co-founder of Cloud Raxak

SYNOPSIS:

CEOs are keen to move to the cloud to effect a digital transformation: improve agility while reducing cost. CISOs however recognize that the attack surface greatly expands because of four key security challenges as they adopt Cloud Environments:    Scale, Dynamic Workloads, Naive users, and Hybrid environments.   Traditional manual or home-grown semi-automated approaches to managing security in such environments do not work when the “bad guys” are fully automated.

We will demonstrate that Raxak Protect dramatically decreases the attack surface and cuts costs by

Enabling the CISO to define security postures by application based on stringent security guidelines like ISO 27002.

  1. Fully automating the application (instantiation, checking and remediation)  of these profiles
  2. Ensuring these profiles are consistently applied across all computing assets, from birth to end of life; across traditional IT, public and private clouds; and from the hardware up to the applications.

We will show how this pro-active security stance reduces the attack surface and makes Cloud Environments safer. Further, we will show how Raxak Protect automation is more cost effective than manual methods. Our experience with large scale customers shows that automation can actually reduce the cost by 80% while improving the security posture of the entire organization by 97%. Therefore, we recommend that automated compliance should be integrated into the security compliance paradigm, to proactively reduce exposure from unexpected configuration drift.

This enables CISOs to enable their CEOs to effect Cloud Transformations cost effectively, and securely.
