    Five Predictions for Hybrid Cloud Environments in 2015-

    Adoption of Automation to Manage Security

    The market for cloud security is ripe for consolidation. While many vendors offer rich functionality for companies that are entirely deployed in the cloud, they do not support traditional on-premise firewalls. Yet, companies that are in the process of deploying hybrid environments are not getting rid of their on-premise data centers any time soon, and they are facing the same core network security management challenges for their public IaaS as for their on-premise data centers. Therefore, there is a real need to manage the network security policy across both environments consistently, and we will see more organizations adopting automation and orchestration to manage security at the "speed of cloud."

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.
