As consumption of cloud services increases, security teams struggle to maintain visibility of the cloud assets in use across multiple environments throughout the enterprise. In fact, 43% of security pros say lack of visibility into cloud environments are their biggest operational headache. Cloud defenders struggle to answer two simple, but important questions: what do I have, and is it secure? The only way to answer these critical questions is with comprehensive security visibility of your AWS public cloud environments.

Join us for a discussion on gaining security visibility across all of your AWS accounts, including best practices for:
- Discovering workloads and resources in use across your AWS accounts, services, and regions
- Reducing your attack surface by identifying and remediating security issues
- Finding and responding to critical risks using different assessment methods (agent-based, agent-less, API, etc.)
