MILFORD, Mass. (PRWEB) September 24, 2019
Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), a leading IT analyst, research, and strategy firm, will be presenting a keynote session at today’s Cloud Native Security Summit. The event, scheduled for September 24 in San Francisco, Calif., is an exclusive, invite-only gathering of senior security practitioners and industry innovators to discuss the changing security requirements for the cloud-native world.
ESG’s Senior Analyst and Group Director, Doug Cahill, will present a keynote session at 9 a.m. PT to unveil a new research study on the journey to securing the cloud-native world, titled, “Retooling Cybersecurity Programs for the Cloud-first Era.” The research, sponsored by Capsule8, Obsidian, and Signal Sciences, warns of a security gap that is both wide and dangerous. Key findings from the survey of senior IT decision makers and cybersecurity professionals include:
- 39% of respondents said absent a compelling case to deploy on-premises, they deploy to the cloud;
- However, 81% note their on-premises data security practices are more mature than those that are intended to secure cloud-resident data;
- Additionally, 43% of respondents say that DevSecOps automation is the highest cloud security priority to address concerns related to securing cloud-native applications.
“The cloud is no longer merely a backup target – it’s now the center of computing gravity for many businesses,” said Doug Cahill, ESG’s Cybersecurity Group Director and Senior Analyst. “Cloud-first strategies are becoming more common, and yet security capabilities are lagging behind cloud adoption. The gap between the degree to which cloud services and cloud-native technologies have and will continue to be consumed and organizational readiness to secure that usage requires a retooling of cybersecurity programs to keep pace with the speed of the cloud era.”
