Event Detail

Many enterprises are looking to cloud adoption to provide flexibility and scalability and are leveraging multi-cloud deployments to get the best-of-breed features from many different providers. Hybrid cloud and multi-cloud have brought capability to businesses to be able to cover all aspects of their IT needs from business continuity to remote access. However, this has also brought complexity in security requirements.


Usually, IT professionals mitigate any security concerns by creating a trust boundary between the cloud and the user accessing via the internet or the cloud and users accessing the enterprise network in hybrid architectures. What is being missed is inter-cloud security considerations.


In this session, Neil will be sharing real-life examples, highlighting potential issues and offering solutions for you to ensure your hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments are fully secured.
