Organizations are increasingly deploying a variety of workloads across multiple clouds. In turn, business-critical data and services are increasingly scattered across this distributed infrastructure. Using the shared responsibility model as a guiding principle, enterprises rely on cloud providers to protect the network, storage, and computing layers, while enterprises (end-users) own the security for everything that is built, deployed, or stored in the cloud. Due to multi-cloud adoption, most enterprises maintain heterogeneous environments, with tools from each cloud platform differing significantly.
For organizations, this results in a complex, nonuniform network security infrastructure. The only viable answer is a unified security solution that runs across multiple cloud platforms. Organizations seeking to deploy applications in the cloud must deploy security solutions that embody key attributes and a security architecture strategy that supports a wide variety of use cases for various cloud deployments.
