How to Build a Secure Enterprise Hybrid Cloud
How can IT managers sufficiently prepare and monitor their environments to ensure the shift to a hybrid cloud be as clean and efficient as possible so that organizations can take advantage of the on-premise assets and unlimited cloud scalability? For a while there several years ago, industry prognosticators wrote that once enterprises decided on their cloud IT strategies, they would build private clouds first and add public cloud services later as needed. Well, that didn’t happen. Turns out they jumped right into hybrid as fast as they could get their boards of directors to allocate the funding. This trend is only picking up speed. Gartner Research has predicted that 90 percent of organizations will have adopted hybrid infrastructure management capabilities by 2020. However, any disruptive trend comes with other considerations. Along with this massive shift to hybrid come more open doors to security threats. A recent study of 250 hybrid cloud security leaders found that only 30 percent of those professionals are using unified security tools that span on-premise and the cloud. With AWS and Azure both leading the way in cloud adoption among enterprise users, many other large enterprises are hot on their heels. How can managers sufficiently prepare and monitor their environments to ensure the shift to a hybrid cloud be as clean and efficient as possible so that organizations can take advantage of the on-premise assets and unlimited cloud scalability? Turns out there are answers for that. This eWEEK Data Point article, using industry information compiled by David Ginsburg, a vice-president at cyber-intelligence software provider Cavirin, offers readers his 10 key criteria for building a secure hybrid environment.
