5. Cloud Security: Technologies You Need to Safely Use the Cloud

Software-as-a-Service and Infrastructure-as-a-Service are two of the fastest growing segments of cloud computing. The security that comes with them is not complete, and fails to protect workloads.

They need mechanisms in place to track, monitor and govern the use of these services.

Learn how moving from a traditional, on-premises delivery model to a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategy is a high-stakes, bet-the-company game for independent software vendors. Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.
