Visibility in the cloud includes understanding all aspects of critical applications in the cloud and comparing this data in real time with historical data, says Sharon Besser of GuardiCore. This enables implementation of an effective and efficient security policy, he says.

"Visibility needs to be decoupled from the infrastructure today, because a virtual instance can be anywhere," he says.

In a video interview at RSA Conference 2018, he also discusses:

  • Hybrid cloud security challenges;
  • Microsegmentation benefits and challenges;
  • Granular elements of cloud visibility.

Besser is vice president of products at GuardiCore. Previously, he was the co-founder of Publicom (acquired by Comsec) and co-founder of EyeOTee Inc. He also worked at Net Optics (acquired by IXIA), Imperva, Check Point and Websense.
