Key Principles and Strategies for Securing the Enterprise Cloud

Organizations are increasingly deploying a variety of workloads across multiple clouds. In turn, business-critical data and services are increasingly scattered across this distributed infrastructure.

Using the shared responsibility model as a guiding principle, enterprises rely on cloud providers to protect the network, storage, and computing layers, while enterprises (end-users) own the security for everything  that is built, deployed, or stored in the cloud. Enterprises use an average of 61 different cloud apps, which are 1/3 of their total applications.

For organizations, this results in a complex, nonuniform network security infrastructure. The only viable answer is a unified security solution that runs across multiple cloud platforms.

This whitepaper explores what steps you should take to ensure you have the right security infrastructure and operational framework in place to be able to protect your business-critical applications.
