The Importance of Multi-cloud Security After Adopting Cloud

Published on 16 October 2023

Ini Pentingnya Multicloud Security Setelah Mengadopsi Cloud

As cloud adoption grows, multi-cloud security is becoming the most sought-after service to protect business assets such as data and applications from security threats across cloud environments.  

Unlike hybrid cloud security, which focuses on securing applications and APIs in public and private clouds, multi-cloud security provides consistent visibility, security, and governance across multiple cloud environments, including hybrid cloud environments.  

To learn more about multi-cloud security and why organizations need to implement this strategy, read this CDT article. 

What is Multi-cloud Security?

Multi-cloud security is a framework for securing cloud computing environments that involve using more than one cloud to store, manage, and run applications and data. For example, multi-cloud refers to the simultaneous use of multiple cloud service providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and other providers.  

The concept of multi-cloud security aims to help companies improve data and application protection by integrating third-party security features and policies into the various cloud service providers used, in addition to utilizing the built-in security features of each provider.  

However, managing multi-cloud security can be a complicated task and requires careful planning and coordination with the cloud service providers used. One of the things that makes it complicated is that each provider has different security tools and services, so it is necessary to adapt the security strategy according to the needs and features available on each platform. 

How Vulnerable is Your Data Stored in the Cloud?

The existence of multi-cloud security services is said to be the answer to the security challenges that organizations face in having the flexibility to choose the right cloud computing environment for applications, whether in the public cloud, at the edge, or on-premises.  

In running a business, flexibility is one of the most important aspects of responding to operational needs, but it also has serious security implications. The more clouds you use, the greater the number of attack vectors and the greater the risk of cyberattack.  

In addition, managing applications across multiple clouds can increase operational complexity and costs. Organizations can lose full visibility into the performance of their digital services due to distributed storage. This also makes it difficult for organizations to quickly identify and respond to problems.  

As cloud computing environments become more complex, organizations must take security challenges seriously and take smart steps to protect applications and data from rapidly evolving cyberattacks. 

The Right Strategy to Improve Multi-Cloud Security

To address the complexity of multicloud environments, organizations need to adopt a more comprehensive multicloud security approach that spans from the transport layer to the presentation layer, and integrates other application security tools such as WAF, API security, bot management, and DDoS protection.  

The first step in implementing multicloud security is to reduce the number of components and vendors in your security ecosystem. Adopting the distributed cloud platform can be an option as a hybrid and multi-cloud solution that makes it easy to secure, deploy, and optimize traditional and modern applications across multiple locations.  

Distributed cloud platform provides connectivity and security at both the network and application layers. This allows enterprises to securely connect one cloud provider to another while securing distributed digital services.   

By deploying a consistent set of multicloud security solutions across applications and APIs, enterprises can strengthen security, improve performance and resiliency, simplify deployment, and integrate policies across on-premises, public cloud, and the edge.   

However, it is important to understand that not all multicloud networking solutions have the same capabilities. You need to choose a solution from the right vendor. F5’s multicloud service solution called Distributed Cloud Platform may be one option. F5 Distributed Cloud Platform not only connects your application infrastructure, but also connects multiple cloud, edge, on-premises, and application distributed environments.
