According to Steve Mullaney, president and CEO of Aviatrix, treating cybersecurity as an add-on or add-on is the wrong approach, as it should be part of the architecture.
By integrating cybersecurity into the fabric of the architecture, Aviatrix Systems Inc. Thus, the cloud makes this a reality based on the displayed agility, USAullaney more.
“So what happens is you should do security everywhere; the place to do that is at every point in the network where you can make a decision and you actually embed it in the network,” he said. “So when you’re making the decision whether or not traffic needs to go somewhere, you’re doing a little bit of security everywhere. So it effectively looks like a giant firewall, but it’s actually distributed in software through every point in the network. It’s a kind of net. “
Mullaney talks to industry analyst CUBE Dave Vellante in AWS again: Execution, during an exclusive broadcast on CUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s live streaming studio. They discussed how Aviatrix enhances cybersecurity in the cloud by ensuring it’s everywhere. (*Disclosure below.)
Anti-recession cloud (type)
As the economic downturn is likely to continue to intensify, the skills gap is expected to widen. However, according to Mullaney, the cloud will help fill the void.
“Now with the recession, you think you would be able to add more people, sir,” he explained. “You will have fewer people. You have to put intelligence in the software, not in your people. I don’t want to say the cloud is recession proof, but it is. “
As a cloud networking company, Aviatrix treats cybersecurity like the air, because it has to be everywhere, according to Mullaney. So security comes first in terms of architecture.
“You can’t point to cybersecurity,” he noted. “Like, can you point to the net? It’s everywhere. Just up in the air, it’s everywhere.”
The lift and change mentality is not the correct path to take regarding cybersecurity in the cloud. Therefore, safety should be included in the framework, according to Mullaney.
“Cybersecurity should be built into the fabric, and that’s not done in the first place,” he said. “They use their firewall; they take all the things they’re currently doing and try to do it in the cloud. That’s really not the right way to do it.”
Aviatrix will accelerate the multi-cloud concept by acting as a stepping stone to integrate cybersecurity in different clouds. According to Mullaney, multiple clouds will appear based on the presence of different industrial clouds.
“Network and cybersecurity is the bottom layer where Aviatrix helps once everything is in place,” he points out. “The app people will say, ‘So there’s no friction. Maybe I could use an autonomous database here; I could take that service and put it all in one app ‘… it’s a multi-audio app; does not exist today. ”
