As businesses accelerate their migration of core processes and data to the cloud, security remains a top consideration. Security concerns remain the #1 roadblock to cloud adoption. Despite that, the migration continues as organizations seek to gain the benefits of scale and flexibility. But managing the security of your cloud-based assets can be complicated and expensive. Cloud providers offer some native solutions, like encryption, but if you operate in a multi-cloud environment, as most businesses do, then you end up having to manage multiple solutions with each provider you use. Join ISMG and Thales as we discuss the challenges of managing cloud security and how utilizing non-native solutions might be a better approach to addressing security priorities like encryption.
