Episode description

In Cloud Provider Comparisons, we take a look at the same cloud services across the three major public cloud providers – Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). In this episode we put the focus on security. Often, there’s confusion surrounding cloud security because organizations don’t always know what they’re responsible for. In addition, with security breaches happening around the world, knowing how to secure your resources in the cloud has become a key focus area. Join Riaan Lowe in this episode to learn about the shared responsibility models across AWS, Azure, and GCP, as well as Identity and Access Management (IAM), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) data security options, and built-in security and compliance.
