09 Mar 2023
Cloud Security Theatre 2
Why do cybersecurity professionals need to choose a single cloud security deployment model? Why are agent and agentless approaches seen as dichotomous? In this session, we’ll explore how the responsibility of collecting cloud telemetry, deriving detections, and delivering a positive security outcome are correlated to the Value of Choice.We will detail the fundamental differences between an agent and agentless-based approach, and explore why both deployment models may be required during a phased digital transformation journey. Maintaining flexibility and dismantling false binaries between solutions is a crucial aspect of cloud security in the contemporary threat landscape. The security needs of a cloud attack surface or cloud workload will change over time, and ensuring architectural choice is advantageous to every part of an organization.
