Public and Hybrid Cloud

Public and Hybrid Cloud
Do you think the majority of enterprise companies will move to the cloud in the next 5 years?

Top Answer : There are issues with the wording of the answer choices for this question. The mainframe was digital before there was a cloud. Moving some workloads to the cloud, and retaining some workloads on the mainframe are valid strategies that are not mutually exclusive.

Benefits and challenges of migrating to the cloud

Hybrid IT Management & SecurityHybrid IT Management & Security

Pulse surveys 100 IT and security leaders to find out how they’re managing hybrid IT infrastructure—and keeping data, access, and users secure.

What’s the biggest challenge you face when it comes to cloud configuration management?

Top Answer : While cloud offers lots of benefits, it’s also extremely hard to manage and do well. It’s a huge opportunity for new innovative companies, but the challenge is there's no one-size-fits-all solution. Every company, every individual, every team is trying to solve this to the best of their ability, and so far I haven't seen anyone do it well, including myself. A lot of companies are coming up with point solutions and have done a good job of developing them around cloud configuration management, doing discovery audits, looking at those configurations and mapping them to best practices, whether they’re NIST or CIS controls, and flagging when things are not aligned. What it's coming down to is you pick something as simple as Office 365 or Microsoft 365 and there are 7,500 settings that you can configure. Of the 7,500, 2,500 are related to cybersecurity or security settings. How do you manage that?

Is process improvement part of your cloud security strategy?

Top Answer : There are several elements to building a more robust security footprint, and process is number 1: you're never going to get rid of people in the chain and therefore process remains important. And it’s also important to make sure people have a good understanding of what that process is, that they know how to run it and have the discipline to do it effectively—not create artificial constructs that just make you appear to be secure. The second element is that you need to have something—not somebody—watching your security on a 24/7, highly scalable basis, and looking for vulnerabilities to take immediate action. Because you might have identified the compromise and developed a fix, but now you've got to roll it out to billions of nodes. That is a daunting task in and of itself.

What are the best solutions for cloud security?

Top Answer : There is no silver bullet solution, I don't think anybody has it figured out. We just need to continue to use the tools that we know, love and hate simultaneously, around processes, education, and walking down—as much as we can—endpoint compute devices, etc., and look constantly for suspicious behavior out there. Whether it's coming from individuals or from devices, whether it's unusual traffic on the network or otherwise, it's really the only thing that we can do. The cloud hasn't necessarily made that any worse than it was but perhaps it's made it easier than it was in the past to do something dangerous in a single push button mode. It wasn't always as easy for you to do that.
