Cloud transformation

Cloud transformation is the process of migrating traditionally on-prem techniques and tools into a cloud environment. Many businesses move their data, applications, and infrastructure to the cloud because it supports increased flexibility and speed. While beneficial in many ways, cloud transformation also brings new security risks such as misconfigurations, unauthorized data access, or unmanaged or unsecured sensitive assets.
