Small and medium businesses (SMEs) play a significant role in the development and growth of the economy of any country. They are also a vital part of the global economy. To stay afloat in an increasingly interconnected and competitive global market, SMEs also need to adapt to the latest technology. SMEs that fail to do so will eventually have to close their doors.One of the most crucial technologies that SMEs must start using is cloud computing. It can help your business grow swiftly, lower infrastructure costs, and help drive innovation. According to a survey by Gartner, up to 60 per cent of organisations will use an external service provider’s cloud-managed service offerings by 2022, doubling the percentage of such organisations since 2018.

These technologies will contribute to the high-performance, high-capacity, high-reliability and low-latency associated with 5G, all delivered at a low total cost of ownership (TCO). This combination of high performance and low TCO is essential, both in addressing the exponential growth in data traffic and in handling the increasing number of IoT devices.

Full Lifecycle Cloud Security

When security teams find cloud vulnerabilities and misconfigurations at runtime, they are often blamed for introducing friction into the continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline and stifling the enterprise’s ability to innovate as efficiently as possible. But it is not the fault of the security team; rather, it is the broader approach that limits the involvement of security until it’s too late. When put in this position, the security team must scramble to find the fault, determine the root cause, track down the right person and work to develop the remedy, and then ensure the fix is implemented correctly.
