In the natural world, there are ten different kinds of cloud – a rare simplicity in meteorological terms. But in our global business environment, there’s no single defining feature to aid classification.
Multi-cloud environments in particular spawn a lot of complexity, and their continuous evolution can also create cyber security blind spots. And because scalability is built in, even a minor misstep can quickly blow up into a major security incident.
A one-size- fits- all approach to cloud security is unlikely to work in these hybrid deployments, where every cloud is different and individual to your business. But how do you harness complexity instead of falling foul of it? One answer could be using artificial intelligence (AI) to learn and understand your cloud environment and gather the insight you need to protect it.
