    Security Is Mission Critical

    According to that same RightScale report, security is the second reason why enterprises are slow to adopt a completely cloud-dependent infrastructure. And enterprise security no longer stops at the walls of the data center — it needs to be a top priority across a company's cloud-based assets.

    Between the time a potential customer enters a domain and a page opens, a tremendous amount happens between the business connection and the end user — much of which transpires on the public cloud. It's important to use the right tools to gain visibility and control into the public internet to ensure issues like BGP hijacking — which is on the rise — are discovered and resolved without your business missing a step (and certainly without a costly outage).

A massive migration to the cloud has been underway for the better part of the past decade, but the number of enterprises with hybrid configurations may be reaching a tipping point. IDC research suggests that by the end of 2016, more than 65 percent of IT enterprises will have adopted a hybrid cloud configuration and spending on infrastructure for cloud environments will reach $38.2 billion. And it's clear from Dyn's proprietary research that every company in the Fortune 100 has a cloud asset. Hybrid cloud environments reduce costs, increase flexibility and scalability and greatly improve network performance. But IT executives need the right tools to monitor and control their cloud infrastructure to maximize these positive impacts and mitigate security threats.

In this slideshow, Gary Sloper, vice president of global solutions engineering at Dyn, has identified eight reasons for the enterprise to improve visibility and control into their global internet and cloud assets.
