Could You Benefit From Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure?

Cloud computing offers a wide range of advantages, especially for larger organizations and those with remote teams. With a hybrid infrastructure, these organizations can keep sensitive and business-critical data in a private environment while offloading other data to a public cloud. This approach can result in lower costs overall. The hybrid cloud option is also ideal for greater scalability and control as needs change.

Hybrid cloud infrastructure can be especially beneficial for:

  • Off-site backup: Hybrid cloud infrastructure can host critical data backups without the need for a secondary site, offering quick retrieval and reduced downtime.
  • Migration between clouds: When migrating between cloud providers, hybrid infrastructure eases the process and prevents organizations from getting locked in with any particular vendor. This flexibility is ideal as providers develop new technology to meet ever-evolving needs.
  • Regulatory compliance: Organizations that operate in multiple countries and must comply with any relevant regulations may benefit from storing data in a private cloud within a particular geography.
  • Safe code testing: Developers can use hybrid cloud infrastructure to test new code and modifications in a safe environment without implementing changes to the current systems of record.

Hybrid Cloud Security Best Practices

While hybrid cloud networking and management can be challenging, they’re worth getting right. You need reliable cloud security to make the most of the hybrid environment without the constant threat of cyberattacks. That level of protection is best sourced from an expert cloud security provider. Your organization can follow a few best practices to prioritize security in its hybrid cloud infrastructure.

1. Implement Network Security and Segmentation

As a security strategy, network segmentation involves setting strict controls for which services are allowed between different zones in the environment. Segmentation can be challenging in a dynamic cloud, but the use of firewalls, intrusion detection systems and intrusion prevention systems can aid in security.

2. Use Data Encryption and Access Control

Whether it’s in transit or at rest in the cloud, data should be encrypted so it’s only decipherable to those with the key. Access control can also be useful in ensuring data is only available to those who need it and are approved to access it.

3. Leverage Identity and Access Management

Users, devices and applications should only have access to the resources they need to perform their duties. Identity and access management makes it easier for security teams to control access, limiting the possibility of human error and breaches from bad actors.

4. Employ Threat Monitoring and Incident Response

Monitoring and managing threats is critical in cloud environments. In a cloud platform, the management plane is a key target for bad actors. Organizations should know which identities and accounts have administrative access to this area at all times. Some best practices for incident response include proactive monitoring and planning for compromises. It’s also important to test incident response plans ahead of deployment.

5. Prioritize Employee Training and Security Awareness

A vulnerability in any aspect of the cloud environment introduces risks everywhere — and the human aspect is one of the least predictable. Organizations should provide regular training and prioritize security awareness to reduce the risk of human error. Training might include regular phishing simulations and workshops on evolving cyber threats.
