For those of you who were able to stream the “Your Move to the Cloud Secured” event on Thursday, September 20, 2018, we are glad you were able to participate and learn more about Palo Alto Networks and Securing a Cloud environment.

For those who were not able to attend for whatever reason, I will try to catch you up on what happened and what you missed.


The cloud is a big and daunting place, full of a lot of challenges. Securing the cloud can be hard, as you have to worry about Fragmentation & Complexity, Manual Processes, Human Error, and New APP Architectures. Your security needs to adapt, and your security strategies need to be broad to cover Mobile, SAAS, and Cloud.  

Palo Alto Networks Vision of Cloud Security consists of:

  • Inline – Protect & segment cloud workloads
  • API Based – Continuous security & compliance
  • Host – Secure OS & apps within workloads

In the event, we answered the following questions:

  • Applying consistent protection across cloud environments
  • Embedding security in your DevOps processes
  • Automating incident response in the cloud
  • Ensuring new technologies—like containers—are protected



The speakers include:

  • Nir Zuk – Founder and Chief Techhnology Officer Palo Alto Networks
  • Tim Prendergast – Chief Cloud Officer Palo Alto Networks
  • Maya Kaczorowski – Product Manager, Container Security Google
  • Adam Geller – SVP of Cloud Products Palo Alto Networks
  • Bryan Lee – Unit 42 Threat Intelligence Analyst Palo Alto Networks
  • Armon Dadgar – Founder and Co-CTO HashiCorp



The agenda consisted of a Main Session (about 39 minutes) along with a total of five different breakout sessions to address the many aspects of securing the cloud environment along with additional resources listed at the bottom of the page.



  • Hosts
    Janet Matsuda - SVP, Product Marketing Palo Alto Networks
    Nir Zuk
     – Founder and Chief Techhnology Officer Palo Alto Networks
    Tim Prendergast – Chief Cloud Officer Palo Alto Networks
    Maya Kaczorowski – Product Manager, Container Security Google

We’ll cover the security challenges organizations are facing in their move to the cloud, ways to address these obstacles, and how the future of cloud security is changing as new technologies like containers are deployed in enterprise cloud environments.


Then attend one—or all—of our breakout sessions:

  • CISO/Network Practitioner Perspective:
    Three Perspectives on the Changing Expectations for Network Security
    Derek Vadala – Managing Director and CISO Moody’s
    Shankar Chandrasekhar, VP of Cyber Security Engineering Moody’s

    The rapid adoption of public cloud has disrupted well-established enterprise IT operating models, including network security. Network security teams are facing new and changing expectations around their role in the cloud. New skills for managing and securing cloud infrastructure are required, and closer interactions with DevOps teams is the new normal. This session will provide both C-level and practitioner perspectives on how networking and security roles have changed, what has remained the same, and, most importantly, how security can be an enabler for the move to the cloud.
