Cloud Security Requires a Holistic Approach
Securing the cloud requires entirely new strategies compared to on-premise systems, workloads and data. While cloud providers claim security is ‘built-in,’ you can rest assured that you assume the risk if your data is lost, corrupted or stolen… not them.
Security should be the ‘wrapper’ that encompasses every aspect of your cloud model, and today’s environment demands that you take a proactive, aggressive and holistic approach. That means ensuring you have protections such as encryption, data protection, and CASB to start. It also means bringing DevOps and security teams together to create shared cloud security metrics for an ‘all hands on deck,’ coordinated approach.
