We live in a cloud-first world. What’s more, that world increasingly leans on multiple clouds for success. Whether it’s public, private or hybrid environments, organisations are leveraging the benefits of the multi-cloud world to drive operational efficiencies, scale quickly and expand growth. Multiple clouds allow for greater flexibility, and the ability to leverage the most appropriate cloud-services from different providers.
Yet while the benefits are clear, securing multi-cloud environments is complex. Securing workloads and protecting data in a consistent fashion across diverse cloud providers, technologies and use cases remains a challenge. And with a recent report suggesting 84% of companies today use multiple clouds, it’s a common issue across all industry verticals.
So how do you deploy effective security for a multi-cloud world? How do you secure both access to the cloud and usage of it? How do you get greater visibility into those environments and reduce the risk of attack? And what do the tools and methodologies for greater cloud security look like?
Join us as we explore how a vision of “visibility and protection everywhere” can be realised to secure access and usage of the cloud, and give organisations confidence that all employees and data are protected.
- What challenges are you facing (or have you faced) in implementing cloud security solutions? What are your concerns? And for those who have already adopted cloud, how did you overcome those challenges?
- What does the advent of the multi-cloud era mean for you in terms of security? How are you managing security across multiple cloud environments? How do you get visibility?
- Where do you see the largest benefit in moving your security architecture to the cloud? How can it help you address concerns such as ransomware, malware and C2 callbacks?
