Validate cloud applications and security with real-world applications and threat vectors.

Problem: WITH cloudification OF NETWORK AND SECURITY FUNCTIONS, EVERYTHING KNOWN BECOMES UNKNOWN

Moving IT infrastructure to public clouds creates a model of shared responsibility between the customer and the cloud provider. This shared model eliminates the operational burden on the organization using cloud services, however, they are still responsible for the security, availability, performance, and management of all the controls and processes associated with operating over the cloud infrastructure. The cloud needs to deliver the same or better performance and similar levels of security relative to on-premises infrastructure.  Without a way to properly validate these cloud application workload and security controls, customer quality of experience (QoE) is at risk.
