Category 1: Public infrastructure as a service

Technology: There are two categories of security for public IaaS – point solutions and platform providers. Point solutions only provide one or two functions; an example would be the SIEM capabilities provided by ArcSight or Splunk. Broader cloud-forward providers focus on the strategic capabilities that transcend any specific cloud provider, similar to CloudPassage's software-defined security. These few technology providers offer a diverse group of security controls but all focus on securing the workload in the cloud. IaaS requires the ability to verify integrity of the workload, alert to unauthorized changes, and track for incidents of compromise – details that an IaaS provider would be unable to ascertain but are the responsibility of the business.

Businesses are nothing less than addicted to the speed and flexibility of using cloud-based software and infrastructure. However, there's persistent confusion about what cloud security technologies businesses need, and the risks those technologies mitigate.

In this slideshow, Carson Sweet, CEO and co-founder of CloudPassage, highlights a categorical review of cloud security needs associated with the use of public infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS) and governance of cloud services. This slideshow will help users navigate what cloud security technologies apply to their businesses.
