Multi-cloud security concerns
Building a multi-cloud security strategy can be a huge challenge
Managing multiple cloud services can quickly become complex when each cloud service provider offers its own administrative and security tools. And that complexity can lead to silos, limited visibility, inconsistent application of controls, or unexpected and undetected gaps in enterprise security, creating new, potentially costly risks.
Most multi-cloud users today rely on a blend of private and public cloud solutions. The average user has nine cloud vendors in all. Among cloud-only enterprises, that number rises to 13. What’s more, the number of cloud-native organizations has doubled in the past year.
Lack of a common framework could prompt companies to adopt mass-market solutions that may not suit the nuances of their business.
It is surprising to note that companies tend to skip a simplified, centralized management console to manage applications and workloads across multiple clouds and face coordination issues.
Increasing use of unstructured data and voluminous data coming from connected devices is making multi-cloud vulnerable.
In an era of massive consolidation, mergers, and acquisitions across industries, enterprises are grappling with delivering multiple products and solutions consistently across multiple clouds. Choosing between applications with competing priorities and clashing workloads can deter even the most accomplished IT teams.
