Smarter tools, services, and new ways of working are driving innovation across businesses of all sizes—and the success of these initiatives rests partly on the shoulders of those responsible for securing them. New digital products, better ways to manage data, flexible working policies—everything needs to be developed with effective security in place. That means IT teams must be closely aligned with the strategies organisations adopt to achieve business success over the next few years. The move to hybrid cloud is one of the emerging workplace trends powering this transformation, and IT security teams need the right tools in place to ensure the data stored across it is safeguarded effectively.
This paper examines the dynamics of the hybrid cloud, and what it means for organisations at both the business and technical levels.
