Security in a Multi-cloud Environment
As companies leverage a multi-cloud strategy to improve IT operations and provide better services to their customers, they can’t afford to overlook the implications for security. This is especially true with the emergence of a new paradigm to run multiple disparate compute environments for application delivery.

Managing Multi-cloud Chaos
As the race to the cloud accelerates, both the benefits and the challenges of multi-cloud environments are becoming ever clearer. There is no question that multi-cloud deployments now play a foundational role in everything from internal business needs to digital transformation initiatives — but it’s also essential for IT to ensure effective visibility, governance, security, and control across both public and private clouds as multi-cloud deployments mature into standard IT and operational realms. Strategies are desperately needed to address these challenges. Adoption of a Polynimbus Secure Application Services blueprint can mitigate multi-cloud risk and operational challenges, including improving compliance, accuracy, and DevOps and SecOps needs, with reduced stress on IT personnel.
