Cloud and DevOps changed everything.

Existing DMZ and network perimeter architectures are not built to properly secure the new cloud-connected applications now dominating the hybrid enterprise. Likewise, as both DevOps and the cloud drive faster application deployment, legacy DMZ architectures are simply too slow and complex to accommodate the highly agile cloud-connected enterprise.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why existing firewall and DMZ architectures are not suited for securing cloud applications 
  • How “Cloud-Aware” security policy can secure your cloud-connected applications 
  • How to make your enterprise “Cloud Ready”, and fix your aging DMZ architecture 
  • How to transform your enterprise and become a Cloud Enabler

Skyport delivers the industry’s first inherently secure, hyperconverged platform that simplifies IT infrastructure by converging compute, virtualization, networking, and storage onto a single platform without sacrificing security or performance. Our cloud managed, on-prem solution provides more control and flexibility, saving time and resources with streamlined and automated operations, putting the power of the infrastructure in the hands of the application owner.
