Importance of Hybrid Cloud Data Protection
Cloud security remains unpredictable, as organizations struggle to obtain the appropriate tools to scrutinize business operations. With more workloads migrating to the cloud, the security issues become more serious. Fortunately, organizations are taking steps with respect to their business operations for hybrid cloud data protection. Combining security and DevOps is one of the most important steps taken by enterprises for cloud security.
Eliminating the functional barriers between the departments of security and DevOps is challenging, but organizations have already started to make noteworthy moves to merge the two groups. Enterprises are also going onboard with security by creating a new position, Cloud Security Architect. The key responsibility of cloud security architect is to manage the movement of traffic to cloud suppliers.
The cloud security teams must be able to supervise and guard the ever-changing array of cloud-based workloads across different public cloud services. In addition, the information security groups must securely integrate agile development and DevOps processes.
Though merging security and DevOps is challenging, some of the organizations have already employed DevOps and cybersecurity extensively, while the others are just evaluating the combination of security and DevOps and looking forward to a stronger integration in the future.
Many organizations are moving towards unified teams, technologies, and processes for cloud security. Cloud security has been a strategic exercise hence, companies are employing different people, technologies, and processes to support hybrid clouds. In the near future, most of the enterprises would want standard security teams, technologies, and processes that cover all the aspects of hybrid cloud.
