Public cloud adoption has soared in recent years. And throughout the pandemic, organizations expanded their cloud footprint even more. Today, 69% of companies host more than half their workloads in the cloud—a 123% increase from 2020.
But with great cloud power, comes great security responsibility. Public clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS) enable organizations to gain agility, cut costs, and reduce infrastructure management. Security is accomplished through the Shared Responsibility Model, where AWS protects the cloud infrastructure and customers secure their data. By working with a security partner like Palo Alto Networks, organizations can stay focused on running their business and gain advanced protection. The Shared Responsibility Model is crucial for organizations to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals and be ready for what comes next.
