Network World - National Harbor, Md. — Security monitoring — the type involving traditional security information and event management (SIEM) — can be done in some public cloud environments, according to Gartner. And if you’re using public cloud services, it’s time to think about doing it.
Security monitoring of assets that the enterprise has placed in cloud is still not a common practice, but it really should be, said Gartner analyst Anton Chuvakin during his presentation this week at the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit. There is always a “loss of control” when turning corporate data assets over to the cloud, Chuvakin says, but “you can compensate by increasing the visibility that comes with collection of logs and network traffic.”
