Using a multiple-cloud architecture calls for a hybrid cloud security mindset, which tends to focus less on network security in favor of securing data wherever it may be.
RightScale’s “2017 State of the Cloud” survey describes hybrid cloud as the preferred enterprise strategy, with 67 percent of the respondents using it. The interesting trend is that there is movement away from private cloud to public cloud. Over the long haul, that will create more hybrid environments. Done well, a hybrid cloud can help make wide swaths of your company more productive while saving money. But there is a price to pay.
