Achieving Zero Trust in the CloudMenlo Security CTO Kowsik Guruswamy Shares Recommendations
Office365 and SaaS usage are driving a shift away from managing security on premises, necessitating stronger security in the cloud, says Kowsik Guruswamy, chief technology officer at Menlo Security.
"When people talk about zero trust today, that don't really mean zero," he says. "They are talking about granular trust - at the end of the day you are still trusting a little bit."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Guruswamy discusses:
- The nuances of zero trust in the cloud;
- Security challenges with SaaS app usage;
- Common challenges and key recommendations.
