SaaS Applications and Hybrid IT Environments Require New Security Solutions

December 3, 2018


Delta Risk to Host December 5 Webinar on Why the Migration to the Cloud Requires New Approach 

SAN ANTONIO, TX — December 3, 2018 — Most organizations are transforming their IT operations by using cloud technologies and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications to move faster and lower costs. However, this shift requires security teams to change their approach, as conventional security information and event management (SIEM) implementations are not designed for the cloud. Delta Risk, a global provider of cyber security and security consulting services, will address this topic in a webinar on December 5 on “Why Your SIEM Won’t Work for Your SaaS Applications.”

The live webcast, featuring John Hawley, Vice President of Managed Security, will explore how organizations can secure their cloud applications faster and more cost-effectively with cloud-specific solutions.

Attendees will also learn about:

  • The current cloud security landscape
  • Pros and cons of SIEM versus cloud-specific solutions
  • Steps to implement a cloud security solution

“The rapid migration to the cloud is changing the role of IT and security professionals, and it requires a new way of thinking about data protection and access management,” said Hawley. “Cloud-native security solutions offer better threat detection and less manual effort for organizations that are using SaaS applications than traditional SIEM approaches.”

According to IDG’s 2018 Cloud Computing study, more than 90 percent of businesses have at least one application in the cloud currently, or plan to in the next 12 months. Although cloud providers include security measures, IT professionals still face a variety of security challenges with SaaS, including lack of visibility into who is accessing applications and insufficient access controls.

Built with a cloud-first approach, Delta Risk’s solutions provide clients with native integration to Microsoft Office 365, Google GSuite, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and the Google Cloud Platform.
