Today's world has become a data-driven ecosystem. And, to compete, businesses are striving to capture the benefits of information and become powerful digital natives. A key part of this is leveraging cloud services and new data center architectures. This is a big reason why businesses often look to adopt multi-cloud architecture to foster better agility and enable rapid innovation.
However, without adequate visibility and control over public cloud consumption, the benefits of agility and flexibility can quickly be overshadowed by significantly increased cloud costs and weakened security posture. As we generate even more data, the threat landscape will only increase as the bad guys aim for your very valuable data points. This is why, to become a secure part of the digital world, it is imperative for organizations to retain a measure of policy-based control, especially over their public cloud deployments, to ensure they don’t overspend and maintain a high level of cloud security compliance. Remember, global governance, risk, and compliance requirements aren't going anywhere, and penalties from new resolutions like GDPR can have serious ramifications both on cost and the brand.
There is good news on this front. New designs around convergence, cloud, and compliance can all benefit an organization that's on their own digital path. Most of all, these solutions aim to create a better user experience while still delivering powerful security architectures.
In this webinar, our featured speaker, Lauren E. Nelson, Principle analyst from Forrester, will talk about the technology drivers leading to the adoption of multi-cloud architectures, key market trends on cloud adoption, and the core capabilities to look for in cloud cost and security governance tools to build an optimized multi-cloud infrastructure. Specifically, we'll cover:
- Becoming a digital native - Key trends to understand in a data-driven world
- Security and data - Knowing the cost and impacts of today's threats
- Cloud design and evolution - How multi-cloud offers major benefits
- Cloud, compliance, and security - Key designs to consider
- Best practices around security governance tools and creating multi-cloud ecosystems
