Cloud security can enable better business outcomes by being:
- Fast: Use cloud service provider native accelerators that enable security capabilities and controls to be deployed in minutes or hours, rather than months.
- Frictionless: Embed security into existing solutions, business processes and operational teams.
- Scalable: Apply automation and self-healing processes to reduce manual steps and break the resourcing model of adding headcount to enable organizations to scale.
- Proactive: Establish pre-emptive controls to block accidental or malicious security incidents from happening in the first place.
- Cost effective: Bake in security from the outset to avoid the additional costs incurred by having to re-do work.
