Public cloud security

Public cloud security focuses on securing public cloud environments that are managed by cloud service providers (CSPs).

Public cloud security follows the “shared responsibility” model, meaning that cloud providers and their customers must jointly take responsibility for security. Learn about public cloud data security.
