Guest of the Week (2/17/17)
George Gerchow, Vice President of Security and Compliance, Sumo Logic Inc.
Congratulations George! You are theCUBE Guest of the Week.
Many successful built-in-the-cloud companies are emerging, and they are finding that being cloud-native provides the opportunity for better cloud security. The benefits of the cloud — flexibility, simplicity, scalability and reliability — all extend to securing data in the cloud.
“Being native-born, understanding how the cloud works and how to secure data in the cloud has really put us ahead of the curve, and the industry is just now catching up,” said George Gerchow, vice president of security and compliance at Sumo Logic Inc.
Born in the Amazon Web Services Cloud, Sumo Logic, a cloud-based log management and analytics service, has an advantage when it comes to security in the cloud, according to Gerchow. The cloud-native platform runs by using machine learning and artificial intelligence to secure data in the cloud by providing real-time threat alerts.
During the RSA Conference in San Francisco, CA, Gerchow met up with Jeff Frick (@JeffFrick), co-host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile live-streaming studio. During the interview, the main topic was about threat intelligence and built-in security on cloud-native platforms.
