Platform9 announced the results of its research, revealing that 91% of survey respondents cite security, consistent management across environments, high availability, and observability as their top concerns for operating cloud-native technologies. The research also found that despite fast growing public-cloud deployments, 67% of cloud deployments are distributed, spread out across on-premises, hybrid, and edge clouds.
<p>The recent report on concern regarding cloud native technologies highlights that the top 2 issues are security and management. One of the underlying issues is that while companies strive to move to the cloud they still do so with an “on-prem” mind set as well as a stack of point solutions that make the transformation cumbersome to complete and afterwards to manage.</p>
<p>Hybrid environments present a challenge both on the strategic level as well as the tactical and operational levels. Integration, availability, management and monitoring of multiple point solutions are challenging for any organization while providing threat actors with a much wide attack surface that has many “dark areas” which organizations may not even be aware of.</p>
<p>For these reasons, and others – such as availability, cost, complexity, coverage and more, organizations have been adopting SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) as their go to architecture and strategy as it addresses these concerns in today’s evolving hybrid environments.</p>
