Securing Multi-Cloud Workloads

Secure Your Multi-Cloud Workloads

As organizations increasingly move towards a multi-cloud strategy for managing their data, it is critical to mitigate the risks associated with this diversification. While the benefits of adopting a multi-cloud strategy are clear, security cannot take a back seat. The key to implementing a resilient multi-cloud strategy is to incorporate security into each component from day-1 when it is easiest and less costly to implement and enforce.

Why Multi-Cloud?

Today’s reality is that almost every industry has moved some type of data or workload to the cloud or to an as-a-service model. Progressively, more workloads are moving between clouds as organizations mature their capabilities. Also, more enterprises are connecting from the data center to a public cloud. This diversification helps enterprises mitigate the risks associated with vendor lock-in and may help address other business critical areas or functions, such as business continuity. 

The ePlus Approach to Securing Your Cloud

ePlus leverages partnerships with leading technology providers and couples that with deep technical knowledge and experience to provide a comprehensive approach to help you mitigate the risks associated with multi-cloud infrastructures. 

Data Protection

To safeguard sensitive data wherever it resides and provide a full range of data protection capabilities in a multi-cloud enterprise, you will need to perform many tasks including data discovery and classification, vulnerability assessment, data and file activity monitoring, risk analytics, data masking, encryption, blocking, alerting and quarantining across your multi-cloud infrastructure.

Infrastructure and Application Protection

In order to quickly detect anomalous behavior and respond to and mitigate threats, having visibility across all multi-cloud instances is key. With complete insights, your security team will be able to setup prioritized alerts so when policies are breached action can be taken. Automating routine, repeatable tasks is a good way to ensure your security posture in a multi-cloud enterprise.

Scalable Identity and Access Management

By implementing an identity and access management framework, you will help reduce risk and ease the burden of multi-cloud management in your enterprise. Identity and access management is the discipline that seeks to ensure the right people have access to the right resources at the right time for the right reason.

Automation and Orchestration

To maintain data integrity and security of the environment, required steps generally need to be performed in a specific order, using privileged permissions, and may need to occur multiple times on any day. Cloud orchestration tools have the potential to lower overall IT costs, free up engineering time, improve delivery times, and reduce friction between teams.
