Addressing Challenges in Hybrid Cloud Security

How can you secure your apps and services without compromising your schedule? (Hint: It’s all in the automation.) Enterprises are using hybrid cloud technologies to enrich the user experience and power their digital transformation. But running applications in public clouds while managing the application data in private clouds makes for a unique set of security requirements. We discuss the challenges that DevOps teams face in hybrid environments and how those challenges can be overcome.

Instart and Forrester Research: Staying ahead of the security challenges of modern web apps

Join VP, Research Director at Forrester Research, Amy DeMartine, and Chief Customer Officer at Instart, Mitch Parker, to learn how you should be thinking about web app security as the web continues to evolve.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • About the changing threat landscape of modern web apps, and where your security teams should be spending their time.
  • How attacks are becoming more sophisticated and harder to differentiate from real human traffic.
  • How existing CDN and edge architectures fall short of protecting your web applications.
  • Why going beyond the edge, and into the browser, is the only way to prevent sophisticated attacks.
  • Hear from Mitch on how Instart is the only platform to combine an intelligent cloud service with a browser virtualization layer for complete visibility and protection against both application threats as well as emerging threats.
