Rapid cloud transformation, accelerated by the shift to work-from-anywhere environments throughout 2020, has accelerated the pace of change in nearly every industry. Security teams have been asked to do more with less, securing more cloud assets and workloads than ever before, while adapting to entirely new infrastructures and threat landscapes. They don’t have the time or resources needed to conduct lengthy evaluations for unified cloud security platforms, but they’ve found their existing tools inadequate, leaving dangerous blind spots in their environments.

Security leadership needs to accelerate the buying process. By asking pointed questions of cloud security vendors, and knowing the answers they should expect in response, they can select the best platform to keep their organizations secure. That’s why we enlisted the support of Dr. Edward Amoroso, founder of TAG Cyber and former Chief Security Officer of AT&T, to create an enterprise buyer’s guide for unified cloud security. 


Inside the Unified Cloud Security Buyer’s Guide

The vendor-agnostic Enterprise Buyer’s Guide for Unified Cloud Security and Compliance, written by TAG Cyber at the request of CloudPassage helps you drive the conversation around unified cloud security and compliance. With a brief introduction, important questions and answers, and a practical worksheet, you can prioritize your requirements and drive the conversation around cloud security. By asking the right questions, you can accelerate the buying process. You’ll be better equipped to find a unified cloud security platform to automate cloud computing security controls and compliance across servers, containers, and IaaS in any public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environment.

Unified Cloud Security Makes All the Difference

Having a unified security platform helps you automate security across your public, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments. A unified cloud security platform:

  • Replaces complex, unmanageable suites of tools by delivering multiple security controls and capabilities in an integrated, single platform 
  • Supports multiple workload form-factors including cloud servers, traditional on-premise servers, IaaS and PaaS services, and containerized stacks
  • Works across any combination of public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments
  • Prevents, detects, or mitigates exploits before negative consequences impact your organization
  • Scales and adapts security with both the elasticity and speed of dynamic cloud environments to stay ahead of threats in the cloud
  • Addresses compliance issues
  • Accomplishes more with fewer resources and in less time

With the automation capabilities of a unified cloud security platform, you can integrate security into your existing DevOps and ticketing/response workflows. These integrations make security and compliance a continuous part of your provisioning, development, deployment, and operational processes.

Founded in 2016 by Dr. Edward Amoroso, former Chief Security Officer of AT&T, TAG Cyber disrupts and reinvents cybersecurity research and provides advisory services. TAG Cyber analysts review hundreds of companies each year, providing them with free advisory and content services. Select vendors are invited each year, based on merit, to become TAG Cyber Distinguished Vendors. The company’s greatest value comes from its influence in the industry through portfolio management, world-class market reports, customized consulting, and CISO coaching for business and government organizations around the world.
