It’s safe to say our world has changed over the last year. How we shop, work, and socialise has been reimagined in a multitude of different ways so that we can carry on throughout national and regional lockdowns. Many of these changes will disappear once COVID-19 is a memory. But others are here to stay.
Enterprise organizations run clouds. Public cloud computing services are provided by Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) from their datacenter HQs, with other clouds ‘instances’ also residing in on-premises servers as private instances, some of which will form bridging points to hybrid clouds, which are clearly a combination of the two.
When the pandemic hit, many companies went into basic survival mode. This fueled a rush to the cloud to respond to the needs of remote workers, changes in business patterns and enable financial efficiencies needed to survive.
In the last decade we have seen cloud technology evolve from a useful competitive business tool to one of the key foundations of the business world. Migrating assets, application and infrastructure to the cloud is an underpinning objective for most digital transformation strategies, with the aim of creating a more agile and adaptable operation.
Ask any security professional their top three concerns, and identity is likely a response — if not the top worry. Digital transformation and the evolution of identity in the workplace — spurred by decentralization, cloud adoption and remote work — have exposed the fact that identity and access management has outgrown traditional security protections and poses major risks.
While Sweden’s far north may seem an out-of-the-way location for a data centre, Facebook’s decision to choose the region had more to do with climate than its proximity to the continent’s cities.
In March, when a token representing a digital collage by the artist Beeple sold for $69.3m at auction, the art world took notice.
When Moonpig wanted to speed up the development and release of its online greetings cards, it turned to cloud automation.
Cloud computing is an integral part of most businesses globally. Technology has transformed the way businesses operate and thrive in the industry. However, the cloud industry has been facing huge challenges when it comes to complying with various data protection and data privacy standards.
The public cloud giants are becoming rather like munificent dictators, attractive and terrifying in equal measure. Their “hyperscale” muscle makes their services hard to resist. It also means punier rivals stand little chance of competing. As the Internet consumes planet Earth, its three most ravenous purveyors – AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure – are growing all-powerful.
Most organizations that move to multi-cloud environments are not properly configuring their cloud-based services, according to the “2021 Cloud Security Report: Cloud Configuration Risks Exposed” from application lifecycle security company Aqua Security.
Cloud native adoption has both transformed the way organizations build modern applications and resulted in increased security threats and concerns, according to a research by Snyk.
Cloud VPNs are an increasingly popular choice for businesses that want to encrypt sensitive company data for their remote workforce.
With cloud architectures taking on increasing importance, these hybrid cloud job skills are prized among IT pros and hiring managers alike
Conventional approaches to privileged access and identity management are ineffective in today’s cloud-oriented DevSecOps environments. The concept of least privilege access still remains foundational – and traditional privileged access solutions can deliver effective security in situations where development and operations are segregated, and on-premises architecture predominates.
