Fewer Shadow IT Deployments

The ease of use and availability of public clouds create another threat to IT security. Developers whose requirements are not addressed by IT can quickly spin up public cloud services without IT even knowing – causing the worst kind of security gaps, ones that the organization doesn't even know exist. Therefore, security teams must ensure that they evolve from the "bottleneck" department to a business enabler that adopts agile and orchestrated processes required to support cloud environments and fast application delivery.

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.
