A major part of digital transformation (DX) is enterprise adoption of multi-cloud tools and services. These include public, private, and hybrid clouds, plus Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). And while multi-cloud adoption is growing rapidly, existing security strategies can’t properly protect these distributed environments. Organizations must reevaluate their defenses at an architectural level. Modern security must be connected to share information and coordinate responses between solutions and network regions. This integration enables greater visibility across the infrastructure as well as the benefits of automation at the policy level that shrink the windows of detection and containment. The security architecture must be able to scale for continued growth. It also must offer unified controls and segmentation capabilities to keep threats from spreading.
A security architecture featuring integrated defenses offers the best approach to unifying and protecting all of an organization’s disparate cloud environments and applications. Learn more about the features and capabilities that a security architecture should offer for multi-cloud environments.
