Taos' Cloud Platform Foundation accelerates enterprise digital transformation

Taos | June 29, 2022

Even when the public cloud offers creative, scalable, and economical solutions, the majority of firms find it challenging to develop the skills, devote the resources, or put plans in place to move workloads to that cloud architecture effectively. This frequently results in stalling cloud-based projects as a business tries to deal with the associated logistical and operational challenges.

Taos has established the Cloud Platform Foundation to aid businesses in completing cloud efforts more quickly and successfully. In this program, Taos matches a company with top professionals who can help the organization identify its present and future needs in order to create a design and strategy for collaborating with a particular cloud service provider.

Business partners are guided through an iterative process that proceeds through five essential phases—discover, plan, create, migrate, and operationalize—using Taos' own Navigator Methodology. With the help of the Cloud Platform Foundation, a company may meet growth objectives more quickly, acquire a future-proof cloud architecture, reduce migration risks, and enable faster releases thanks to advanced CI/CD pipeline procedures and tools.

"We commit everything to our relentless focus on serving our customers and delivering the best available technology platforms that meet their needs. That's what spurred the development of the Cloud Platform Foundation, which is built on our deep technical expertise and backed up by proven results," 

Taos CEO, Hamilton Yu.

Organizations that invest in Cloud Platform Foundation can quickly achieve operational maturity in the cloud or in a multi-cloud environment by utilizing Taos' industry recommendations. In addition, by creating a future-proof architecture, a company can migrate more quickly and risk-free and begin reaping the rewards of cloud adoption earlier.

"Taos partnered with Gaia engineering to design and deploy a new hybrid cloud OpenShift environment with speed and precision to align core business objectives," said Justin Morant, Principal Engineer at Gaia.

Eighty percent of IT and security professionals prioritize zero trust, says a new survey

Cloud Security Alliance | June 07, 2022

The RSA Conference takes place every year in San Francisco. CISO Perspectives and Progress in Deploying Zero Trust was issued today by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world's largest organization dedicated to developing standards, certifications, and best practices to help ensure a safe cloud computing environment. The exploratory study, conducted by the Zero Trust Advancement Center (ZTAC), interviewed over 800 IT and security experts to discover where Zero Trust ranks as a priority inside their organizations, as well as the top business and technical difficulties they've faced throughout implementation. "The philosophy of Zero Trust has the potential to fundamentally reshape our approach to securing the technology we use across the board over the course of the next few years. Arriving at this destination requires greater clarity and a common understanding of Zero Trust principles as well as articulating concise strategies and adopting the appropriate frameworks. This survey is data rich and should be carefully contemplated by the industry to identify the roadblocks and opportunities for pervasive Zero Trust. CSA is aggressively producing valuable research such as this within our Zero Trust Advancement Center to bring the topic in focus for our community," said Jim Reavis, CEO, of Cloud Security Alliance. The study gathered 823 responses from IT and security experts from diverse business sizes and regions, including 219 C-level executives. This is the first part of a multi-part survey that will take place this year. Courses in Zero Trust architecture and strategy, a CloudBytes webinar series, multiple research whitepapers, an annual Zero Trust Summit to begin in Q4 2022, and new professional certification, the Certificate of Zero Trust Knowledge, are among the ZTAC's upcoming initiatives during the next 18 months (CZTK). The Zero Trust Advancement Center builds on the breakthrough Software-Defined Perimeter study series, Cloud Controls Matrix, Enterprise Architecture, and other relevant virtualized security concepts developed by the CSA. Organizations can sign up for the initiative and register their interest at cloudsecurityalliance.org/ZT.

Splunk and JupiterOne partner to improve cloud asset visibility and threat detection

JupiterOne | June 02, 2022

JupiterOne, the industry's leading cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM) platform, announced a new integration partnership with Splunk, the security and observability data platform leader, making it easier for organizations to connect and analyze security insights across their cyber asset landscape. Now, security teams may access data from both the JupiterOne platform and the Splunk Security Cloud to boost the value of user data among mutual customers. The volume of data and cyber assets grows quickly as firms speed digital transformations through cloud-native and API-first frameworks. To achieve better results, teams must have a better awareness of and visibility into all of their cyber assets. Users can leverage the JupiterOne and Splunk interface to dynamically assess the context of their cyber assets and automate incident response without having to construct or bring in additional infrastructure. "Security buyers today value integration across threat intelligence, vulnerability management, and security operations tools, while demanding cloud-based security technologies that are easy-to-buy and use. By working with Splunk, JupiterOne meets these requirements, while making it easier for business and security teams to manage actionable data and mitigate cyber-risks," said Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst and Fellow at Enterprise Strategy Group Users will be able to acquire context from a single source of truth across their complete security operations, as well as execute compliance assessments throughout their cyber assets and environment, thanks to this innovative cooperation between JupiterOne and Splunk. This can be done when analyzing Splunk alerts or looking into JupiterOne asset discoveries. Splunk's products aid in collecting and indexing real-time machine data so that situational insights can be generated. The JupiterOne CAASM platform's graph-based architecture, as well as its ability to query data, provides customers with complete contextual analysis, allowing a variety of use cases. Incident response, vulnerability prioritization, access management, security engineering and automation, application and product security, DevOps, and cloud and SaaS security are just a few topics covered. "Context is essential for sound security decision making. By adding context from JupiterOne about an organization's complex cyber assets relationships to the situational awareness they get from Splunk, users can take action on incidents and meaningfully reduce risk. We believe that connecting Splunk's event data with JupiterOne's structural data in this way will become the future of real-time and contextual security, and this unique combination will provide a powerful market differentiator," Erkang Zheng, Founder and CEO at JupiterOne
