The Cloud Security Alliance report shows even more organizations are engaging in multicloud purchasing, relying on cloud environments from numerous providers. Approximately 66% of organizations have multicloud environment, and about 36% rely on a combination of both multicloud and hybrid technologies.
This further muddies the water for security professionals. "The problem for security professionals is that security models and controls vary widely across providers, are often poorly documented, and are completely incompatible," wrote Rich Mogull, analyst for Securosis and vice president of product for cloud security firm DisruptOps. "Anyone who tells you they can pick up on these nuances in a few weeks or months with a couple training classes is either lying or ignorant. It takes years of hands-on experience to really understand the security ins and outs of a cloud provider."
