Cloud computing has revolutionized the way organizations work, but it has also brought new security challenges. Traditional security solutions are not built to handle the complexity of the cloud, and cloud-native solutions are limited in their scope. In a multi-cloud environment, security leaders must adopt multi-cloud solutions to avoid creating additional siloes.
Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) and Data Detection and Response (DDR) are two critical technologies that organizations can use to protect their data in multi-cloud environments. DSPM solutions take a multi-cloud security approach, while DDR works on the data level, allowing organizations to create policies detecting and responding to data misuse and data exfiltration.
A well-built DDR solution leverages extensive threat models of all data assets and can issue alerts based on a database of hundreds of real-life attacks. An attack on data can be mapped to the different steps in a data kill chain, meaning the actor moves from reconnaissance to first move, and then to attack.
Modern problems call for modern solutions. As technology infrastructures continue to evolve, security solutions must grow with them. Businesses must approach data security with a data-focused approach and protect data no matter where it goes or lives. The cloud improves how people work, connect, and operate companies – businesses need security solutions that go beyond previous iterations and meet today’s needs.
