Saad Mirza, Sr. Dir. of Solutions Architecture, Aviatrix


Every CISO or CIO has tasked their architects to secure the ever-growing cloud footprint. With so many different tools and options to choose from, the lack of a prescriptive approach can result in both wasted time and resources. The net effect is that cloud adoption is slowed by security, when in fact, the right approach to security will accelerate cloud adoption.

In this TechTalk, you will hear from Aviatrix Architects on the seven fundamentals of how to transform your cloud security model from a gatekeeper to an accelerator.


Highlights include:

  • Accelerating operations with end-to-end visibility
  • Achieving line rate encryption throughout the data plane
  • The benefits of a uniform security model
  • Dealing with ransomware, bit mining, and data exfiltration at scale


Join us as we cover the fundamentals of secure cloud networking!
