The Rise Of Cloud Security

As cloud adoption continues to accelerate, demands for security are also rising. With that comes a need for solution providers and vendors to reinvent themselves if they want to stay relevant for tomorrow's cloud-first world, Zscaler CEO Jay Chaudhry said. Zscaler uses the cloud to offer a portfolio of security-as-a-service solutions – including firewalls, ATP, DLP, encryption and more - to protect web traffic. In an interview with CRN, Chaudhry said the cloud has flipped the partner model on its head, with security as an ever-more important piece of the cloud migration puzzle. However, the good news is that demand for cloud security is higher than ever, and he predicted those solution providers and vendors who can adapt to the new world will win in the market. Take a look at where Chaudhry sees the most opportunity for cloud security, and what partner models he predicted would succeed around the cloud.
