Multi cloud environments allow you to optimize workloads, but they can leave security gaps.

Why You Should Prioritize Cloud Native Security in a Multi Cloud Environment

Companies are choosing multi cloud strategies in order to take advantage of the best features of each cloud solution, whether it’s to optimize storage costs or take advantage of machine learning tools and automation. Choosing this kind of approach requires a unified security solution that ensures compliance requirements are met as well as the automation of security controls.

A cloud native security approach is best, in comparison to an environment where security seems to have been bolted on as an afterthought. But it’s also important to prioritize automation, unification, and integration to close any gaps and keep pace with threats.

The Cloud-Forward Approach to Security: The ideal multi cloud strategy is one that decreases and prevents downtime, improves agility, and drives better business outcomes by optimizing its combination of cloud solutions. In order to do this, cloud security must keep pace, in addition to offering the flexibility to work across a variety of cloud services, eliminating friction and promoting security and visibility.

Multi Cloud Helps Businesses Grow but Increases Risk: One of the greatest advantages around cloud computing is also its biggest risk: users can access cloud tools from anywhere, but then so can malicious actors. As containers continue to add new elements and management tools to the environment, security teams may struggle to keep up. They may face reduced visibility, fragmentation in identifying and mitigating threats, and misconfigurations around workloads, both serverless and containers. They will also struggle to keep up with compliance requirements.

Why Cloud Native Is Key for Multi Cloud: Adequate security involves staying ahead of breaches by relentlessly decreasing the attack surface and improving visibility. You need a tightly-integrated cloud native security solution that limits the potential for a breach across networks and containers. Functions should identify vulnerabilities, detect threats, and support compliance measures, all while being able to meet requirements for scale, speed, and reliability.

Integration is key. When considering tools that are not cloud native, it’s easy to observe the ways in which they are not prepared to secure a dynamic cloud environment. There’s a lack of optimization for cloud applications and monitoring is more challenging. They require a high level of manual intervention by the security team.

A cloud native solution will offer consistency across a multi cloud environment, with integrated tools that streamline tasks for security teams. Cloud native solutions will maintain compliance levels and security policy, reducing the amount of time security teams spend on basic tasks.

One of the most important areas a cloud native multi cloud policy will address is the risk of employee errors. From cloud misconfigurations to compliance violations, teams must have access to intelligent monitoring tools to identify vulnerabilities and threats, as well as misconfigurations. The ideal solution will also reduce alert fatigue, automating threat detection and monitoring while eliminating noise so that security teams can focus on the threats that require their attention.

Sports Production Services
Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!
