As more and more organizations decide to adopt a multi-cloud strategy, IT leaders realize that most employees lack the skills to manage multi-cloud security.
Indeed, a recent study by Valtix revealed that 95% of IT leaders declared to be making multi-cloud a priority in 2022, with a focus on security. However, only 54% stated to feel confident that they have the necessary tools and skills to achieve this goal. Most of them also think that their multi-cloud operations are underfunded.
Moreover, 67% of IT leaders feel that their own employees are underskilled regarding multi-cloud security. Most of them reported not knowing every application in their public cloud, or if host-based security is in place across their public cloud accounts.
Hence, with multi-cloud becoming more relevant in 2022, it is vital that organizations find the best solutions to implement multi-cloud security policy and visibility. To do so, businesses need to create a sustainable model for multi-cloud security, know their cloud environments, find ways to consolidate their cloud security, adopt a security strategy that is cloud-first, as well as make multi-cloud security an imperative in 2022.
