Of those surveyed, 96% said they were moderately to extremely concerned about cloud security. "What was surprising is that a combined 44% of respondents perceived a higher risk of security breaches from public clouds compared to traditional on-premises environments," Harris said.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Harris discussed:

  • Findings from the 2024 Cloud Security Report and strategies for protecting complex hybrid and multi-cloud environments;
  • How to overcome visibility challenges with a unified security platform;
  • The key cloud security investments that organizations are making.

Harris has over 25 years of experience in the networking and security industry developing strategic partnerships, building channel organizations and bringing new products to market.
