Securing mixed cloud environments

Securing cloud computing environments is challenging enough, but is made all the more complicated when a mix of cloud options are employed, an approach that will become increasingly common.

What constitutes an effective security strategy when a company builds a private cloud to augment existing compute resources, embraces public shared cloud services for other needs, and signs up for software as a service (SaaS) and still other cloud offerings? Oh, and now fold in the idea that virtual machines, with all their attendant security, network and storage settings, might be migrating among some of these environments.

The complexities are significant, affecting everything from performance to compliance and even job roles. Chances are security in this mixed environment will look little or nothing like it did in more traditional IT environments.

Download this new digital Network World special report, "Securing the mixed cloud environment," prepared by Network World editors, which examines the issues, trends and strategies for coping with this complex challenge.
