Hybrid Cloud

Secure Your Hybrid Environment

Security considerations for the cloud

The reduced costs and increased operational efficiency, productivity, agility and flexibility promised by Cloud have made it hard to ignore. As organisations of all sizes and in all industries look to take advantage, whether the target is transition to a full cloud environment or a hybrid environment there are significant security considerations that need to be managed.

Data protection compliance

Perhaps your organisation handles customer credit card data, patient health information or other PII, or you work with data spread across multiple countries. Even if your infrastructure, applications and data are in a cloud that is supplied by AWS, Azure etc. you are still ultimately responsible for complying with laws and industry specific regulations pertaining to security and privacy such as the new General Data Protection Regulations coming into force in May 2018.

Concerned about securing hybrid?

You're not alone. According to a 2019 survey carried out by by FireMon (FireMon 2019 State of the Hybrid Cloud Security) highlighted that 60% of respondents said cloud business initiatives were accelerating faster than their security teams’ ability to secure them.

Whilst only 28% used tools that work across multiple environments to manage network security within the hybrid environment.

“Cloud shift is not just about cloud. As organizations pursue new IT architectures and operating philosophies, they put in place a foundation for new opportunities in digital business, including next-generation IT solutions such as the Internet of Things (IoT). Organizations embracing dynamic, cloud-based operating models position themselves for cost optimization and increased competitiveness.
