Managing Security Policies Across Hybrid Environments

Organizations will need to face and solve significant security challenges as they attempt to unify their security policy strategies across hybrid cloud environments, including:

  • Lack of visibility across the hybrid environment
  • Lack of tools to extend the corporate policy across the hybrid environment
  • Lack of operational workflows across the hybrid environment
  • Problems demonstrating compliance

AlgoSec predicts that both vendors and enterprises will be scrambling to solve these challenges through product enhancements and extensions, partnerships and integrations. For example, Amazon Web Services followed by Microsoft Azure have already become the IaaS platforms of choice for most organizations, and therefore development and integration efforts will focus on them first.

It's once again time to make predictions and identify trends for the coming year. The debate over public versus private cloud has been brewing for a while now and, in 2015, many organizations will find that a compromise between the two – hybrid cloud – is actually a better fit for their needs.

According to Gartner, 75 percent of large enterprises will have hybrid cloud deployments by 2015, so organizations must understand how the hybrid cloud environment extends the security policy management challenges of the on-premise data center. In this slideshow, AlgoSec, a security policy management company, discusses five predictions for hybrid cloud environments.
