Cloud computing is rapidly becoming a must-have for organizations of all shapes and sizes, making hybrid cloud security a big concern—and often a big question mark—for IT security professionals.

A recent IDC report predicted that cloud adoption in organizations will grow 45% by 2018. This prediction is not lost on cyber-attackers, who are constantly adapting their attack methods and devising new ways to target threat surfaces and vulnerabilities in the cloud.

To deal with security challenges in the cloud as you do (or should do) in your on-premises environments, you must consider how the threat landscape changes as you move from the data center to the cloud. You must also consider the security resources provided by cloud service providers and how they can augment your own security tools and measures to deliver complete hybrid cloud security.

In this blog series, we will explore the security challenges that impact cloud and hybrid cloud infrastructure environments, and discuss the best methods of detecting them. The blog series will cover three main areas of focus:

Part One: How security challenges persist, or are amplified or are mitigated in public cloud and hybrid cloud environments

Part Two: New security challenges that are introduced by cloud environments

Part Three: Best practices for securing your hybrid cloud environment

Read Part One here.
