Securing a Hybrid Cloud Model

In this Gartner Research report, the challenges network and security leaders face while trying to secure the hybrid cloud are explored, and guidance is given.

We believe this paper indicates that as network edges expand beyond the data center to accommodate new workforce requirements, organizations are faced with changing their security postures in order to keep pace with new types of cyberattacks.

The report will discuss the pressure to adapt and scale hybrid models across the expanding network, engaging secure access service edge (SASE) and zero trust protections in an effort to provide comprehensive security.

At Fortinet, we believe our key differentiator is that we provide consistent security (on-prem, segmentation and cloud-delivered models) across all edges from the data-center to the cloud edge with our Security-Driven Networking vision. SASE is a journey and customers will need a hybrid approach to provide best-in-class security everywhere to have better security efficacy.

Download this research report to better understand how to drive digital transformation to accommodate the shift to remote work, while augmenting your existing network security. Plus, gain guidance on enabling users anywhere to safely access distributed network resources and applications.
