Nearly all organizations have adopted the cloud to modernize their operations, enable rapid innovation, and accelerate growth, and there are no signs of slowing down. Gartner estimates that by 2025, over 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms.
But as more organizations move their critical workloads into the cloud, this has also introduced new risks. Traditional security solutions lack the capabilities to adequately respond to the risks. Organizations often react by adding new security solutions to their overall infrastructure, but this ends up resulting in a fragmented security architecture, making any kind of management challenging and increasing risk.
In today’s rapidly evolving IT environment, organizations will keep investing in new security solutions to counter new risks. The challenge is that many of these point solutions are not integrated, so with each new solution added, an organization’s infrastructure becomes increasingly complex and fragmented. A recent study showed that 59% of enterprise organizations have more than 50 separate security tools deployed, with security teams using most of them to investigate and respond to a typical security incident.
