How to protect your multicloud environment

Due to its multiple advantages, more and more companies are betting on multicloud environments. However, in scenarios in which different interconnected data sources coexist, it is difficult to maintain a secure perimeter, since the potential attack surface increases.

Also keep in mind that in multi-tenant public cloud environments, an organization’s data shares the same physical space with that of other companies, so cloud computing creates a number of unique issues and security challenges. . What then is the most appropriate security posture?

In “Multi Cloud Securing”, VMware explains to companies what are the three main keys that they must take into account to protect themselves effectively in multi-cloud environments, always bearing in mind that the responsibility for security in the cloud is a shared effort between cloud providers (which must offer security tools and services to its customers and the company to which the data belongs.

The obstacles to security in a multicloud environment are many and varied. This solutions guide will focus on four key areas in depth, endpoint security, workload security, network security, and cloud security posture. In this sense, in this guide you will learn:

  • You determine who is responsible for each aspect of cloud security, rather than assuming that the cloud provider will take care of everything.
  • Understand how cloud architecture works to help avoid security holes due to misconfiguration.
  • Apply the principle of least privilege. Understand how to assign the proper permissions, disable unused ports, and remove unnecessary services, processes, and instances.

You will also discover how the VMware offer can help you adopt this approach that improves your security posture in a multicloud environment, taking into account three fundamental aspects:

  1. Protect the EndPoint with VMware Carbon Black Cloud: Cloud platform that combines smart rule enforcement with suspicious behavior prevention to keep new threats at bay.
  2. Protect workloads with VMware Carbon Black Workload: Offers advanced protection designed to protect modern workloads in order to reduce the attack surface and strengthen the security posture.
  3. Protect the network with NSXSecurity: Incorporates security into the network virtualization infrastructure.

In short, if your company has taken or is thinking of taking the leap into the “mulitcloud territory”, this guide is presented as one of those documents that you cannot ignore. Do not miss it!
