Securing Hybrid Cloud
Moving to a hybrid cloud platform enables workloads to be shuffled and moved between public and private clouds as computing needs and costs change, giving businesses greater flexibility and more data-deployment options. However, hybrid clouds have their own merits and demerits. The convenience and adaptability afforded to those who use hybrid-cloud technology come with a cost: Security teams must protect company data, and in many cases, proprietary processes across multiple environments.
Hybrid-cloud environments almost always exist on virtualized multitenant servers, making it difficult to monitor them for attacks on a per-customer basis. The configurations especially important when it comes to cloud security are operating system version and patch level, local users and groups, permissions on critical files, and hardened network services that are running.
With the attack surfaces expanding due to cloud adoption, innovative approaches, as well as best practices, are becoming absolutely vital for safeguarding data across various environments. Moving to a hybrid environment, organizations need to reassess their approach to security fixes and updates diligently.
