Introduction

Nowadays, more people regard the native security of public cloud providers as a way to deal with their main security challenges. As security and risk (S&R) professionals increasingly trust public cloud providers as strategic partners and provide them with advice on top-level cloud security decisions, the public cloud market has increased.

Alibaba Cloud in the Report

Alibaba offers high SLAs and simple guest VM encryption. Forrester's customers find Alibaba's RFP responses easy to evaluate. The solution provides simple and effective guest OS encryption, has its own key management system, and offers DDoS and firewalling with deep learning capabilities and strong dashboarding. The solution is not yet ISO 270017/19 certified and lacks an extensive security partner ecosystem. It has no native support for containerization and lacks English admin UIs for about 30% of the total PCPNS functionality.
