The old way of protecting endpoints and servers doesn't translate well to the modern era of IT. Cloud environments require speed, scale, and most importantly, a security solution that doesn't degrade performance.

To meet the unique performance needs of the cloud, companies often conduct pre-runtime security scanning before deployment. This approach has been proven to mitigate certain attack vectors really well, especially known vulnerabilities. However, pre-runtime protection provides limited coverage and leaves organizations blind in runtime. In recent years, CISOs have expressed increasing concerns over a lack of visibility into what code is actually running on their cloud servers.

This poses several questions. Pre-runtime vs. runtime protection ' if you can only have one, which do you choose? Do organizations typically have both? Should they have both in order to protect against a wide range of attack vectors? Which do you prioritize?

Virtualization security expert and SANS analyst Dave Shackleford and Intezer CEO Itai Tevet will answer these questions in this upcoming webinar about best practices for securing your cloud workloads. Intezer provides protection and visibility for cloud workloads.
