Minimize risk and gain visibility into your cloud environment to secure your infrastructure.
Enterprises are turning to the cloud to reduce capital expenses and increase agility as part of their digital transformation initiatives. Despite the benefits, cloud migration results in business-critical data and services being scattered across clouds and data centers. This leads to an expanded attack surface and a corresponding increase in security risk. Some organizations are unknowingly stumbling into a new security paradigm - the shared responsibility model, a model that is built on the assumption that the cloud infrastructure will be secured by cloud providers, while security for services used in the cloud are the responsibility of the organization.
Without the right security infrastructure and operational framework in place, the cloud presents serious security challenges that can have far-reaching repercussions. With each cloud provider using different tools and approaching security differently, this creates additional complexity for enterprises that must connect those into the security tools they employ to protect their applications. To secure multi-cloud environments, enterprises must follow three principles:
- Native integration with all major cloud providers
- A broad suite of security tools that cover the entire attack surface
- Centralized management of security, including automation of workflows and threat-intelligence sharing
