As the cloud computing dust settles, it is now becoming clear that the hybrid security model makes more sense to many organisations. As companies continue embracing hybrid environments, they must find a way of ensuring proper administration that addresses the traditional and modern environments.
What is Hybrid Security?
Hybrid security is the protection of data, infrastructure, and applications in an IT environment within an organisation on-premise and in the cloud. Hybrid is a mixture of on-premise and cloud. It entails ensuring workload portability, orchestration, and managing the security of data and information across multi-platform environments which include cloud – public or private and on-site.
According to the latest statistics by Forrester Research, most companies use hybrid solutions in their operations. Accordingly, the majority of the adopters have opted for hybrid cloud with 62% stating that they have opted for 2+ unique cloud environments. Of all these 74% describe their strategy as hybrid/multi-cloud. Hybrid cloud security presents unique challenges for network administrators. These challenges are best addressed through utilities and tools that are implemented in a network to ensure real-time data packet scanning, network analysis through applications, and network monitoring.
Hybrid Security Challenges
A hybrid environment brings a promise of choice, flexibility, and scalability. It allows enterprises to keep data in an environment that works best for them – in terms of both compute and security aspects. It presents an opportunity to store sensitive information such as personally identifiable information (PII) on site, while at the same time embracing the advantages offered by the cloud. However, it is not without its fair share of challenges that must be understood and solved:
