Modern Software Podcast
The New Relic Modern Software Podcast is back! For the first episode of 2018, I’m joined by my co-host, New Relic Developer/Evangelist Tori Wieldt, along with Lee Atchison, Senior Director of Strategic Architecture, to discuss the hot-button issue of SaaS security. Specifically, the heretical idea that your precious data may actually be safer with a Software-as-a-Service provider in the cloud than in your own data center.

For many enterprises, finding success in the cloud is still a daunting challenge. Too often, organizations set overly high expectations for the benefits while underestimating the amount of work required. An unfortunate result can be a vicious cycle of blame, finger pointing, and grasping for something—anything—that could be considered a victory.
