The Hybrid Cloud Chess Match

As enterprise workloads proliferate, the dynamic nature of hybrid cloud deployments make the management of both cyber threats and compliance a significant challenge.According to RightScale, on average, companies are using nearly five different cloud environments at a time. Just over one-half are deploying a hybrid cloud strategy, as opposed to only one of five which are committed to a multiple public cloud environment and one of ten which are deploying a multiple private cloud strategy.

In this talk, Caveonix CEO and co-founder, Kaus Phaltankar will address how enterprises must manage their risk posture given this new state of complex hybrid cloud environments, regardless of where workloads reside.

To win in chess, you must stay at least one step ahead of your opponent by anticipating what you have that’s valuable and then developing strategies to keep it “safe.” Workload protection functions very much in the same manner, only at a far greater scale.

Hybrid cloud workloads are highly volatile and have a multitude of potential configuration issues, and potential vulnerabilities due to their installed software versions and patches. They may also have dynamic inter-dependencies and exposure to other application workloads.

In multi-cloud environments, each individual cloud may be based on different technology implementations that result in inconsistent security and policy frameworks. This makes the management of cybersecurity and compliance requirements across the hybrid cloud increasingly complex.

Kaus will address how to protect these workloads in a hybrid cloud environment. Attendees will learn why enterprises need to have a consistent security solution that understands what is being deployed, where it is deployed, what has changed, how they may be subject to the latest threats, how to deploy consistent security policies, and how to proactively mitigate these risks.
