How to Enhance Cloud SecurityForcepoint’s Nick Savvides on the Role of SASE and a Cloud-Native Perimeter
Enterprises can enhance cloud security by taking several steps, including adopting the secure access service edge, or SASE, concept and using a proxy firewall, says Nick Savvides, senior director of strategic business-APAC, of Forcepoint.
“Change the perimeter to wherever the user is, and put SIEM between the data and user to gain visibility, he advises. “And the only way to achieve this is to implement a SASE and a cloud-native perimeter, a proxy cloud or firewall that enables you to see everything that a user is doing in accessing data.”
In this video interview previewing an upcoming Information Security Media Group virtual roundtable discussion, Savvides offers insights on:
- Top security challenges enterprises need to consider before embarking on cloud journey;
- Evolving compliance standards for gaining visibility and control;
- The relevance of SASE and CASB in enterprise cloud security.
