A growing issue
I find it concerning that "fewer than a third of organizations have a strategy in place to tailor security requirements to the mix of environments they use," and I agree that "Security teams need to do a lot of thinking to keep up with the rapid diversification
 of enterprise computing into a variety of private, public, cloud and traditional environments." I think it is critical to be able to manage the security policy from a single, central command, to secure big data, databases, cloud applications, file servers, applications and more.

Cloud is a particular concern and the Ponemon study "The State of Data Security Intelligence," reported that "Data that is outsourced to cloud is the biggest worry." Another Ponemon study reported that "Less than four in 10 leverage security tools to protect enterprise applications and data in the cloud."

Gartner released the report "Simplify Operations and Compliance in the Cloud by Protecting Sensitive Data" in June 2015 that highlighted key challenges as "cloud increases the risks of noncompliance through unapproved access and data breach." The report recommended CIOs and CISOs to address data residency and compliance issues by "applying encryption or tokenization," and to also "understand when data appears in clear text, where keys are made available and stored, and who has access to the keys." Example of solutions can be found in another Gartner report that concluded that "Cloud Data Protection Gateways" provides a "High Benefit Rating" and "offer a way to secure sensitive enterprise data and files stores of data and use cases.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
