September 30, 2014

Boston, MA – AlgoSec, the market leader for Security Policy Management, today announced the results of its “Security Policy Management in Hybrid Cloud Environments” survey. The survey focuses on the network security challenges facing companies that are deploying or planning to deploy their business applications on public Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platforms.  A key finding of the survey shows that 79 percent of organizations stated that they need better visibility in order to unify security policy management across their on-premise and public cloud environments.

Conducted in August 2014, the survey polled 363 information security and network operations professionals, data center architects, application owners and CIOs worldwide. 239 respondents (66 percent) reported they are currently deploying or planning to deploy business applications on an IaaS platform within the next 12-36 months. The following key findings are based on these 239 respondents, and include:

“Network security in public IaaS is fundamentally different compared to traditional on-premise data centers, which results in the myriad of operational, security and compliance challenges highlighted in this survey,” said Nimmy Reichenberg, Vice President of Marketing and Strategy at AlgoSec. “As organizations look to strategically adopt public IaaS, they must ensure they have holistic visibility and a platform that can manage their network security policy consistently across their entire environment.”
