Managing Effective Security Policies Across Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Environment

Enterprises are not only migrating applications to the cloud from on-premise data centers, but they are developing multi-cloud strategies to take advantage of availability and cost structures as well as to avoid vendor lock-in. In fact, IDC has predicted that more than 85% of IT organizations will commit to multi-cloud architectures already by the end of this year.

In complex, multi-cloud and hybrid environments, security teams need to understand which network flows and security controls impact application connectivity, including cloud-specific security controls (Network ACL and security groups) as well as virtual and physical firewalls that protect cloud resources. They need to manage policies that maintain their compliance posture across multiple clouds and hybrid environments.

In this webinar, Yitzy Tannenbaum, Product Marketing Manager at AlgoSec, will illuminate security-policy issues in multi-cloud and hybrid environments and show you how to achieve:

Security Policy Management for The Hybrid Cloud Environment

Enterprises are flocking to the cloud because of the agility and ease with which business applications can be deployed there. However, the cloud is based on a software-defined security architecture that is fundamentally different from that of physical networks. As a result, security, network operations and application teams are struggling to identify and migrate the necessary application connectivity flows to cloud security controls, and then manage network security policies cohesively across the entire hybrid enterprise environment. It’s currently a complex, tedious and error-prone process that compromises security, compliance and business agility.


Multi-Cloud Security Network Policy and Configuration Management

Taking advantage of cost and performance improvements, enterprises are extending their networks far beyond the traditional perimeter to incorporate multiple public and private clouds. Migration of applications to clouds has become an indispensable strategy for enterprises as clouds deliver many financial, performance and other advantages. Public clouds have become part of the computing fabric of millions of enterprises.
