2. Protecting Data in Hybrid and Multiple Public Clouds – Ambuj Kumar – PSW #634
According to Gartner, 70% of businesses are adopting a hybrid cloud and multi-cloud strategy to augment their internal data centers. The challenges of protecting data and using encryption for multiple hybrid, public cloud, and on-premises environments increases complexity, cost, and security risk. As workloads and sensitive data move to the cloud, keeping cryptographic keys, shared secrets and tokens secure is critical to secure public cloud deployments and successful digital transformation.
