Security Challenges Delay Enterprise Migrations to the Cloud, New AlgoSec Survey Shows

Enterprises embracing hybrid cloud gradually, but need better visibility and security management processes to accelerate application deployments in the cloud, prevent cyberattacks and compliance violations

October 31, 2017



Ridgefield Park, NJ, October 31, 2017 – Most enterprises face major challenges when managing security across their hybrid enterprise networks both during and after cloud migrations, according to the new ‘Hybrid Cloud Environments: The State of Security survey from AlgoSec, the only provider of business-driven security policy management solutions.

The international survey of 450 senior security and network professionals reveals the insecurities around enterprises’ hybrid cloud strategies. While nearly a third (32%) plan to increase their public cloud usage in the next 12 to 18 months, the majority harbor significant concerns about cyberattacks and breaches in their hybrid environments, and encounter problems with their visibility and security management processes.

Key findings from AlgoSec’s Hybrid Cloud Environments: The State of Security survey include:

“The survey clearly shows that most enterprises are driving their business transformation strategies by expanding their usage of public cloud infrastructure. But they also have significant security concerns about how they will secure and manage their increasingly hybrid environments,” said Joanne Godfrey, director of communications at AlgoSec. “As organizations increase their public cloud deployments and migrate applications, it’s essential that they have complete visibility across both on premise and cloud networks, together with the ability to automatically and holistically manage security policies.  This enables them to better protect the business and fulfil compliance demands, while taking full advantage of the cost savings and agility offered by the hybrid cloud model.”

About the Survey

Conducted in Summer 2017, the survey polled 450 C-level executives, and senior security and network professionals in organizations worldwide, from a range of industry sectors. All the companies that participated in the survey were required to have at least some of their business workloads in the cloud.
