Application Security in Multi-Cloud:
Policies and Best Practices for Reducing Risk

PREMIER SESSIONS
Changes in Cloud Adoption Trends
Presented by: Matthew Chiodi, CSO Public Cloud, Palo Alto Networks
It’s clear that the world is trending toward wider cloud adoption across all industries – the State of Cloud Native Security Report 2020 revealed that 46% of enterprise workloads are already in the cloud, and is expected to grow to 64% in the next 24 months. Recent global events have further solidified this surge, with enterprises and governments rapidly shifting critical workloads to the cloud. What may have been a multi-year strategy for an enterprise has, by necessity, been reduced to months or less.

For many organizations, this accelerated shift to the cloud also means completely reimagining and optimizing their stacks to achieve cloud native implementations. In this session, Matt Chiodi, CSO Public Cloud for Palo Alto Networks, will explore key cloud security trends that IT and security leaders should understand to ensure they are prepared for the rapidly approaching cloud native future.
