John Swensson, Customer Success Manager, CloudPassage
As more organizations experience the benefits of public cloud infrastructure, we’re seeing an increase in the adoption of hybrid- and multi-cloud environments. This enables development teams to select the best infrastructure for the specific needs of their application, such as one cloud provider over another, or leveraging the data center to host a portion of their assets and resources. This creates a challenge for InfoSec, as the security tooling used for one cloud service provider is often not portable to another and the security tooling for the data center is not optimized for the cloud. As a result, InfoSec can find themselves accessing multiple dashboards and security tools in the course of their daily activities, reducing productivity, increasing costs, and leaving gaps in security controls across environments. This session will look at the key pitfalls to avoid and the success factors for effectively securing these diverse and complex environments.
