00:25 — Rob takes a look at multi-cloud implementation and its implications for security. There can be a big security benefit if you’re choosing to go multi-cloud in terms of the intentional segmenting of data, security logs, and so forth.
00:48 — However, if you’re running production workloads, you want to make sure that you have some level of consistency in control guard rails, policy implementation, and things like that across your different infrastructures and service providers.
01:03 — To make that happen, you’ll want to bring in some kind of control plane that works across these different solutions. The control plane will provide a uniform security control and assessment experience for your team.
01:19 — It will ensure that you’re not going out and putting the burden on your security team to understand and assess however many infrastructures and cloud service providers you have in place.
01:30 — The complexity of having to understand and assess all of that could bury your team and lead to inefficient, inaccurate, and inconsistent results, which won’t benefit your program.
