Valtix Proof of Concept: Achieving Multi-Cloud, Cloud-Native Security with Valtix (Part of Cisco)

Spring 2023

When enterprises first experimented with the cloud, developers using what the cloud provider made available for security was fine – it was an experiment. When enterprises started lifting and shifting apps/workloads, it was acceptable to lift-and-shift security – using old approaches but applied to the cloud (i.e., virtual appliances).

But looking at cloud, re-factored or born-in-the cloud apps and workloads, all of the existing approaches become cumbersome at best and broken at worst. They miss out on cloud agility, scalability, enterprise security capabilities, and multi-cloud support.

In this presentation, Vishal Jain will discuss some of the challenges faced by enterprise organizations trying to secure cloud networks across multiple clouds. You’ll come away with a clear picture of the technology market landscape, the pros cons of different approaches, and how the Valtix Multi-Cloud Network Security platform helps a large data-as-a-service provider deliver egress security at scale.
