SENSITIVE DATA CENTRICVSNOT DATA FOCUSED
CloudGuard centres our focus on sensitive data, adding appropriate protections based on the type of and sensitivity of your data no matter where it lives in your environment. Meanwhile, the industry is focused on coverage of systems, networks, and applications without considering the sensitivity of the data. This leads to either more expensive solutions or ones that indiscriminately spread limited budget across critical and non-critical assets alike – resulting in mediocre security.
TTP DETECTION & PROTECTION COVERAGEVSDEFENSE-IN-DEPTH
By focusing on detecting the TTPs that threat actors use and protecting against them, CloudGuard delivers security outcomes that outperform those of defense-in-depth approaches – on speed, accuracy, comprehensiveness, and budget.
GLOBAL FRAMEWORKSVSPROPRIETARY STANDARDS
CloudGuard defaults to global, portable frameworks to ensure any work you put into your security programme (or any that CloudGuard does for you) is transferrable should you decide you want to switch providers. This approach also means you can communicate apples-to-apples with the worldwide community and not have to translate from proprietary standard to one more globally accepted.
STAKEHOLDER UNDERSTANDINGVSTECHNICAL JARGON
At CloudGuard, we prioritise stakeholder understanding through our learning programmes, consulting, and most importantly our easy-to-understand user experience (UX). We believe that the value and advantages of our solutions are obvious given an understanding of the related security concepts, and we don't hide behind a veil of technical jargon.
PERPETUAL PLATFORM OWNERSHIPVSVENDOR LOCK-IN
We believe the continuous addition of valuable features, our consistent delivery of insights and outcomes, and our modern approaches to integration will keep you coming back for more. That's why we want you to own the platform — not beholden to a proprietary tool set. If you do choose a different MSSP or want to bring some or all of the security responsibility in-house, you retain all of the custom rules, tuning, and integration work because you own the platform on which it was built.
CLOUD CONSUMPTION MODELVSENTERPRISE LICENSING MODEL
Why pay more for security services you won't use? Why speculate every budget cycle and deal with complex capacity planning models when you can choose a cloud consumption model for security? Because most other security firms only offer a legacy licensing model designed to force you into buying capacity you don't need. With CloudGuard, pay only for what you use and scale up when you need.
DEVSECOPS REALITYVS"WHAT IS DEVOPS?"
CloudGuard delivers its solutions using infrastructure-as-code modules with support for all major cloud providers, allowing you to integrate with your own DevOps practices and workflows. Other MSSPs might provide you with VM images or deployment scripts but leave it up to you to figure out. CloudGuard provides access to our entire infrastructure library and reference architecture.
FOCUSED INVESTMENTSVSSPRAY AND PRAY
Security budgets are often constrained to begin with. Spreading it thin across different aspects of your environment and hoping for outcomes is not an ideal strategy for cybersecurity. CloudGuard uses an intelligent, focused, and informed approach to deliver the controls that matter, whereas others leave you to manage a never-ending sprawl of tools and bury the signal in a chorus of noise.
