The Challenges of Securing the Multi-Cloud Network

Organizations today are not only aggressively moving many of their workloads to the cloud, but many of them are doing so using a multi-cloud model. They leverage one provider for specific functionality and another for location or for cost. At the same time, critical data is being distributed and processed across a variety of additional cloud-based applications and services. Nearly all of them have some sort of a private cloud as well, with nearly half using multiple hypervisors to manage those environments.

Public Cloud Security: Making It a Business Enabler

In general, if a cybercriminal is able to successfully launch an attack at an owner-operated IT infrastructure, they can also launch one at a cloud service provider.

Moving to the Cloud? Top Security Factors to Consider

It seems like everyone is talking about moving to the cloud these days. The efficiencies, productivity, agility, elasticity, and cost savings all make a compelling case for migrating from traditional private networks and data centers to private clouds and other virtualized instances, and eventually into public and hybrid environments. Because of these advantages, government agencies and private enterprises across industries are all looking at ways to effectively embrace cloud-first strategies.  I attended a security conference just a few...

The Open Security Requirement in the Age of the Cloud

In a 2015 article posted by Forbes, it was reported that 87 percent of people hadn’t heard of the term “Internet of Things” (IoT). At that time, Gartner Inc. estimated that there were 4.9 billion connected devices in use. Fast forward to 2017, and Gartner now reports that number has grown  to 8.4 billion, with a look ahead to 2020 predicting that 20.4 billion connected devices will be in use. The IoT has gained traction in day-to-day life by adding new applications and capabilities at a rapid rate, and as this technology begins...
