What Aspects Will Influence The Adoption of Cloud Security Solutions In The Upcoming Years?

Whether the organizations have already adopted the cloud or are just embarking on the journey, protecting data from theft or loss is their ultimate goal looking forward. For this, embracing the opportunity to redefine their deployment strategy is essential for the organizations. This and to ensure that their strategy integrates the cloud considerations throughout.

2019 saw a splendid growth in the cloud computing market, with an increased focus of organizations on protecting their data throughout. As organizations move from their legacy systems to cloud computing, they realize the benefits of capital expenditure and cost savings while leveraging SaaS solutions. However, with continued cloud adoption, it has become indispensable for organizations to maintain an unshakable cloud security posture.

Decoding the Impacts of Future Regulations on Cloud Security

Achieving compliance is an upstream hassle for organizations. Existing regulations are updated regularly while new ones are implemented to handle evolving issues. While compliance does not guarantee security, without being compliant achieving security is difficult. For example, the EU’s GDPR is created to stub data breaches faced by businesses and safeguarding personally identifiable information (PII) from attackers. Such regulations impact the growth of most organizations even slightly linked to businesses in Europe.

As the consequences and penalties imposed on non-compliance are hefty, it is most likely that organizations uncover their limitations. Security techniques and legacy architecture are key limitations that prompt them to adopt public cloud services built with compliance policies in mind. It has become highly important for organizations to put security first, which otherwise can result in solving the issue of compliance at the cost of complete security and visibility.

‘Shift Left’ Approach to Cloud Security

Organizations are realizing that their application or workload security is not the responsibility of cloud providers. They have to be responsible for themself, when it comes to data compliance and security. A popular trend in the cloud security landscape is that organizations seek early and continuous security solutions for addressing the challenges head-on. 

Micro-segmentation, the latest technology, is modern, smart and strong enough to handle an increasingly complex environment. This technology is smooth in accomplishing early-value applications when it comes to addressing infrastructure problems.

The strongest micro-segmentation technology serves as a built-in security solution, with the capability to handle heterogeneous data centers. This explains why several organizations are choosing solutions that comprise robust complementary controls like incident response and breach detection.

Looking Into Cloud Security in 2020

The top priority of organizations who are moving to cloud security is protecting their data, wherever it resides. A comprehensive description of this will depend on the position clients are in their cloud journey. Are they just embarking on their cloud journey? Have they completely adopted the cloud as a deployment platform of choice?

Protecting data from leakage or loss remains the ultimate goal, for which, organizations must embrace the opportunity to redefine their deployment strategy overall. As the adoption of private and public cloud continues, the majority of organizations find themselves in a hybrid cloud environment. Moving ahead, the ability to protect critical assets and applications across multiple environments remains the key for organizations, while ebbing the overall attack surface.
