Choosing Between Native CSP vs. Third-Party Cloud Security Tools

The rapid movement from on premise to the public cloud has created an entirely different paradigm for implementing network segmentation and controlling access.

This new environment is also highly distributed, with additional cloud cyber security capabilities provided by Cloud Service Providers (Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, etc.) themselves.

Traditional firewall vendors (Palo Alto Networks, Cisco, Juniper, Fortinet, etc.) have also made their cyber security products available as software that can be deployed into the cloud.

Determining what mix of cloud security tools (native cloud and third party) and how to have the cyber security team maintain some semblance of control is a significant challenge.

In this whitepaper, we’ll take a look at some of the key players in both cloud security segments and then provide guidelines on how you can design your cloud security infrastructure and then implement the right cyber security controls.
