testing and defenses 

Advanced cloud penetration testing and defenses training is designed to focused on addressing the critical issues on cloud environment and provide a systematic solution for defending the workload .On-premises environments have been moving to the cloud for last decade. The global business analysis predicts that almost all companies will have workloads in public and other cloud environments very shortly. when it comes to assessing risk to businesses, we need to be prepared to evaluate cloud-delivered services’ security. In advance cloud penetration testing and defenses training, you will learn the penetration testing techniques focused on cloud and assess cloud environments.

Today I’ve completed my one 2 one online training by Mr Naresh sir from Certcube Labs .
This is the first time I have attended a class in this format and wondered how effective it would be. It was very effective and therefore I would definitely be interested in attending other classes in the same format. The instructor was very knowlegeable and provided a wealth of information about the current version, especially since the last version I used was several releases ago.
