Deploy a security-focused hybrid cloud
Today, 94% of organizations use some type of cloud, and 58% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
Hybrid cloud is an IT architecture that incorporates some degree of workload portability, orchestration, and management across two or more connected but separate environments, including bare metal, virtualized, private cloud, and public cloud. With a hybrid cloud architecture, you can run workloads in any of the connected environments, move them between environments, and use resources from those environments interchangeably.
Organizations adopt hybrid cloud environments to:
• Connect infrastructure, platforms, applications, and tools from different vendors.
• Increase efficiency and scalability.
• Reduce costs.
• Increase agility.
• Optimize data placement.
No matter where you are in your hybrid cloud journey, security is a big concern.
In fact, 81% of enterprises cite cloud security as a challenge.
Hybrid cloud security vulnerabilities typically take the form of loss of resource oversight and control, including unsanctioned public cloud use, lack of visibility into resources, inadequate change control, poor configuration management, and ineffective access controls. Unauthorized users can take advantage of these gaps to gain access
to sensitive data and internal resources.
Security breaches can be costly. The average cost of a data breach is US$3.92 million, with lost business accounting for 36.2% of this cost.
And threats are growing. The likelihood of experiencing a breach within two years is 29.6%.
Both the average number of data records and the time to identify and contain breaches increased in 2019.
Even faced with these challenges, you can deploy a security-focused hybrid cloud by adapting your methods to account for the differences between on-premise and cloud architecture. This e-book discusses new approaches and considerations for protecting your business in the hybrid cloud.
