Cloud estates are a complex interconnection of technologies, architectures and environments – often managed by independent, autonomous teams. Answering essential questions like “where do I have publicly exposed containers with high Kubernetes privileges and vulnerabilities” or even more basic ones like “what databases are exposed to the internet” is painfully difficult. Current approaches require multiple tools that create a fragmented view of risk, perpetuate operational silos, and force teams to manually correlate thousands of alerts. Hear from local security leaders about the importance of unifying technologies to see your whole cloud environment, focus on the risks that matter, and prevent the next breach at your organization.
