Palo Alto Networks: Bridging the Gap between Cloud Security and the SOC

Published on
palo alto networks podcast em360

Integration and communication between Cloud Security and the Security Operations Center (SOC) is now a top priority for effective security. Cloud Security teams focus on securing cloud infrastructure, managing identity and access, and ensuring data protection, while SOC teams monitor, detect, and respond to threats in real time. Effective collaboration between these teams is crucial to addressing the unique challenges and dynamic threats seen increasingly today targeting cloud platforms.

Despite their shared goal of safeguarding organisational assets, Cloud Security and SOC teams often operate in silos, leading to communication gaps and inefficiencies. Bridging this gap requires unified strategies, shared tools, and streamlined processes that enable real-time information sharing and coordinated responses. By integrating Cloud Security with the SOC, organisations can enhance threat visibility, improve incident response times, and fortify their security posture.
