Cloud Security Trends: Cloud Security is a Team Sport
A 451 Research Report by Fernando Montenegro, Principal Research Analyst, Information Security
This report touches on several different areas of cloud security, focusing specifically on customer efforts around securing their cloud infrastructure. The report looks at two key ‘megatrends’ – the increased presence of security functionality in broader technology products/services which means that customers have to work collaboratively as a team with CSPs and vendors to achieve optimal security, and the distributed nature of work within organizations and the needed focus on internal collaboration as a team. This report considers the impact of these two cloud security trends on different stakeholders, like the customer, CSPs and security vendors, and then lists the unique challenges that they each face.
