Creating Strong ROI for Multi-Cloud Solutions Through Compliance & Security
Today’s corporations and service providers are decisively moving to a multi-cloud environment. The increasingly complex infrastructure landscape, and the need to create cost savings and business agility, are essentially leaving businesses no choice but to embrace the multi-cloud model, which leverages a mix of public, private, and hybrid cloud services. While the benefits of cloud solutions are evident, including the fact that some platforms actually add more security, a multi-cloud architecture also introduces new areas of exposure. From a compliance and security standpoint, the mixed environment can overwhelm organizations. Many services need to be secured, and a single misconfiguration in one service can result in a costly and damaging data breach.
