It is important to work with a vendor who started their life in the cloud. Cloud vendors are pouring in a ton of money into R&D to the tune of up to $20 billion a year. They are adding a lot of features and capabilities that developers and operating staff want to leverage. Sometimes, three to five new features are appearing from cloud vendors every day. If you can imagine, it's like working in an operating environment where the chessboard is changing on you on a daily basis. It's not like the data center where you're used to working with a certain infrastructure in a certain way. As you built it, the cloud is constantly changing.
This is one of the challenges that security groups have: Maintaining consistency and keeping up with the rapid state of change which is going on in the cloud. As new features come on board, it's important that those features and capabilities get integrated with the firewall and the way that the policies can be applied evenly. The cloud changes so quickly and it is one of the main reasons that a lot of companies are finding themselves exposed in areas that they may not realize. This is why a cloud-based security vendor is important because they understand these changes. When there is a new feature or functionality that might expose you in a certain way, they make sure the integration applies evenly. This is important for us and the industry.

ShieldX makes the cloud safer than on-prem deployments and that is because that the number-one cause of security incidents today is human error, and that's often a result of very complex security structures. ShieldX makes it a lot easier and a lot simpler to define your policies and define your rules, and that greatly reduces the opportunity for user error.
