Cloud Security – Sophos Optix solution

Cloud Security Sophos Optix Solution

Deployment of business applications and systems in multi-cloud configurations across Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is common and rapidly becoming the default. The benefits of this deployment approach are numerous, but it also brings increased complexity. This complexity combined with the expanding network surface area due to the proliferation of mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, makes it hard for IT security teams to keep on top of the rapidly changing network landscape.

Staying current with security threats and the ever-changing network and application landscape is a time-consuming task. It is also not a good use of experienced IT security professionals time and skills. It would be much better if the job could be automated and the IT teams time then freed up to do more creative and business process tasks. Sophos Cloud Optix combines the power of AI and automation to give organisations the tools they need to take control of their multi-cloud infrastructure. This allows IT teams to focus on other business tasks. Follow the link above for details, and contact Renaissance to discuss your needs. Read on for a summary of what Sophos Cloud Optix delivers.
