Seamless Multicloud Security In Financial Services

Background: Over the last few years many organisations have begun to consider adopting a multicloud approach, to ensure continued performance and resilience. However, great care must be taken as this can risk increasing the attack surface and amplifying the chance of issues caused by misconfigurations.

In this webinar, we hear from cloud security specialists GFT and Palo Alto on how to leverage the benefits of multicloud, reducing time-to-market and minimising configuration costs, whilst managing risk and regulatory challenges.

Hear how a real-world financial services client project was rapidly implemented in order to accelerate cloud security and provide a single security control in a multicloud environment.
