Cloud computing has had a significant impact on IT. As more organizations transition to cloud computing, these infrastructure shifts present some new challenges to cybersecurity strategies. Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) is an IT analyst, research, validation, and strategy firm that provides market intelligence and actionable insight into the global IT community. Aporeto is excited to have partnered with them to present a whitepaper which shares valuable research into the industry and examines the infrastructure shifts facing the sector.
In the whitepaper, ESG examines the modern data center and the growing shift to hybrid clouds. Coming to the forefront in recent times is an increasingly diverse mix of technologies that comprise hybrid clouds, which present complications for cybersecurity programs that seek a uniform security approach across these environments. Microservice-based applications approach this situation using orchestration platforms to automate the lifecycle of the application, with a workload and API-centric strategy used to secure the application components.
Aporeto is an identity-powered security solution aligned with the attributes of modern infrastructure to protect hybrid clouds from unauthorized access, and a range of other vulnerabilities and threats.
As more and more organizations adopt containers to deliver their applications, with this pattern following an upward trend, the yield is a heterogeneous mix of server workload types. Application containers will coexist with both virtual machines (VMs) and bare metal servers for the foreseeable future, and the technology must adapt to provide organizations with the tools they need to deploy their applications.
