Organizations should look for a unified Cloud Native Security Platform that can natively incorporate multiple CSPs to get the best multicloud capabilities.
Although several workloads remain on-premises, technology development has moved decisively toward public cloud, and companies seeking to future-proof their operations are shifting to the cloud at a faster rate than ever before.
The rapid expansion of cloud applications exposed to the Internet through mobile, web, and API-based interfaces has resulted in an increased attack surface and security risk for organizations, especially those with multicloud strategies involving multiple infrastructure service providers.
Cloud customers have a variety of use cases for their workloads in the cloud, and a multi-cloud approach will help them get the best-in-class cloud service for each one.
Adopting a multicloud approach allows businesses to choose the best-in-class capabilities from each cloud service provider (CSP). As a result, CSPs are focusing on comparative areas of service intensity in order to differentiate themselves from competitors and increase their share of the multicloud market.
In order to capture all of the best-in-class technologies available in the market, organizations now need a cohesive, consistent, complete life cycle, and robust framework that completely integrates with multiple cloud service providers.
Single Control Plane to Unify Clouds
Expanding into multicloud environments introduces additional complexity, so it’s critical to handle the complexity and related costs with streamlined operations across multiple cloud service providers. The security control plane unifies multicloud security awareness, governance, and compliance allowing multicloud complexity to be managed and solved. This includes data management and identity and access control through clouds and multinational teams.
Businesses can standardize and leverage the experience with the product if they use the same security tool everywhere. It doesn’t matter if they are running the tool in their own data center or through several public clouds — it works the same everywhere.
Cloud Native Security Platforms
Businesses cannot achieve multicloud success with CSP-native capabilities that benefit just their specific cloud. As a result, an ISV — specifically, an agnostic and cloud-unifying security framework — is the catalyst for realizing the multicloud strategy and making it operationally successful.
Cloud Native Security Platforms offer a multicloud operational fit with deep multicloud visibility and native context in any ecosystem, whereas the single platform end-user interface remains the same for convenience. Therefore, adopting a cloud-agnostic security platform is the most effective multicloud strategy.
With a CNSP providing cloud-agnostic agility and multicloud visibility, businesses are free to choose the right cloud value for each project without having to learn a new collection of native services.
Increased Focus on Customers
CSPs often deliver new services, putting time-constrained teams under pressure to figure out how these new services fit into their current workflows. Using a CNSP as a multicloud strategy, on the other hand, removes the need to keep up with rapidly evolving CSP environments.
Organizations should allow a cloud-native platform with a focus on process fit and security make sense of new cloud services for them. This way, they can ensure that they adopt CSP innovation safely and efficiently in compliance with industry standards and cloud Shared Responsibility Models.
