Despite the efficiencies of cloud services, security remains a significant barrier of entry for many organizations. Mark Urban of Symantec offers advice to help security leaders navigate past cloud complexity and chaos.
"The challenge is that there are so many different [definitions] of what cloud is," says Urban, VP of Product Strategy and Operations at Symantec. "The biggest challenge really is understanding all the different segments of cloud security and how they can navigate them to fit their needs."
In an interview about overcoming cloud security barriers, Urban discusses:
- Initial barriers to entry;
- How to tackle specific challenges such as access governance and information protection;
- How Symantec is helping organizations rise up to meet these and other challenges.
In his role as Vice President of Product Strategy & Operations, Urban helps major enterprises navigate the evolving technology landscape to address key business and security issues.
He joined Symantec via the Blue Coat acquisition, where he led product strategy & go to market across the Blue Coat Cloud Security Services, Secure Web Gateway, Advanced Threat Protection, Incident Response, Web Application Protection, Encrypted Traffic Management and Network Performance Optimization.
