Your organization needs a new approach to secure hybrid IT – one that enables strong cloud security and visibility.
CIOs are increasingly drawn to public clouds, but there are still significant legacy applications, data centers and mission-critical systems that remain on the inside. Whether you are only using cloud computing for limited applications and workloads, or the cloud is a major component of your IT strategy, your security needs to keep pace with hybrid IT. Hybrid IT balances the best of both worlds: the control inherent in on-premises technology with the scalability of public cloud. A strategic security plan can help reap the full rewards of cloud computing without sacrificing flexibility and governance.
This white paper outlines the 12 cloud security risks to hybrid IT and the 5 considerations for ongoing cloud security planning.
