Why modern architecture requires modern protection

How customers can leverage the scale and intelligence of cloud computing to make their security systems as effective and performant as the rest of their networks

It’s no secret that securing a modern enterprise means keeping up with a vast and constantly shifting landscape of threats. However, this task is made exponentially harder when businesses are forced to rely on traditional, appliance-based security systems that route everything through a single choke point within your data centre. 

Cloud technology is critical to most organisations’ IT networks, but many are failing to use the cloud to effectively defend them. Join IT Pro reviews and community editor Adam Shepherd and Cloudflare director of security product management Patrick Donahue to find out how customers can leverage the scale and intelligence of cloud computing to make their security systems as effective and performant as the rest of their networks.
