Hybrid cloud security strategies analysed in new research
April 12, 2018 / James Bourne
Hybrid cloud and multi-cloud security is becoming top of mind for organisations – but many still persist with best of breed tools for both systems rather than combining into one ‘best of suite’ offering. That is the key finding following a report from Santa Clara-based Cavirin Systems. The report, which polled more than 350 IT admins, IT decision makers and C-suite executives, found 81% of organisations currently deploy a hybrid or multi-cloud strategy, with 11% only going on-premise and 8% with one cloud provider. For those who have two or more, Azure, cited by almost half of those polled, was most popular, ahead of IBM (45.8%), Oracle (34.7%), Amazon Web Services (32.3%), and Alibaba (20.7%). 46% said their setup was on-premise with VMs, while the same number cited on-premise with private cloud management.
