Intel video offers a guide to cloud security

The move to the cloud is an undeniable force driving the IT, innovation, and business agendas for organizations large and small. But security remains the most critical concern businesses have in moving workloads to the cloud.

The second episode of Intel Canada’s Path to Cloud series tackles security head-on. Host Phil Vokins, cloud services director for Intel Americas, is joined by two Intel subject matter experts who’ve played a significant role in the company’s cloud transformation.

Vokins is joined by Shachaf Levi, cloud security architect and Sridhar Mahankali, principal engineer for network security, to analyze Intel’s experience in building and securing cloud services. In less than 15 minutes, they offer critical insights into customers’ most significant security concerns in the cloud and how to steer clear of common challenges.

Vokins, Levi and Mahankali tackle topics including the single biggest risk in the public cloud, the differences in security challenges between cloud and on-premise workloads, the different risk profiles of IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS, and offer their thoughts on the best Cloud Security Frameworks.

The videos present an excellent opportunity to get recommendations on cloud security best practices for your customers based on the experiences of IT professionals at Intel and its customers who have driven a successful cloud journey for their enterprise.
