As organizations continue to migrate their workloads to the cloud, 89%1 have selected a strategy of running their operations on multiple cloud service providers. Some reasons for a multi-cloud strategy include cost efficiency, increased speed of innovation, removing single points of failure, and workload optimization.
Organizations also are adopting a multi-cloud strategy to attract and retain top talent as this allows employees to work on interesting, innovative projects using their specific platform expertise. For all the benefits of a multi-cloud strategy, though, there are security implications to consider as an organization will have an increased attack surface.
Unique Challenges of Protecting the Cloud
Protecting the cloud has unique challenges as there are workloads running on infrastructure organizations don’t control but still are responsible for their security. Seventy-six percent of respondents to a recent study2 say existing tools have limited to poor cloud security features forcing organizations to invest in yet another security tool to gain proper visibility to cloud infrastructure and misconfiguration threats. This creates both additional complexity and burden for organizations to get their staff up to speed on both the tool as well as protecting cloud platforms.
