The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered. This paper offers guidance to help organizations establish a systematic and repeatable process for implementing a cloud-first strategy. It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions. The goal of this guidance is to help ensure that any new cloud program is secure, compliant, efficient, and successfully implements the organization’s key business initiatives.

At an unprecedented pace, cloud computing has simultaneously transformed business and government, and created new security challenges. The development of the cloud service model delivers business-supporting technology more efficiently than ever before. The shift from server to service-based thinking is transforming the way technology departments think about, design, and deliver computing technology and applications. Yet these advances have created new security vulnerabilities as well as amplify existing vulnerabilities, including security issues whose full impact are finally being understood. Among the most significant security risks associated with cloud computing is the tendency to bypass information technology (IT) departments and information officers. Although shifting to cloud technologies exclusively may provide cost and efficiency gains, doing so requires that business-level security policies, processes, and best practices are taken into account. In the absence of these standard

It is no secret; security and compliance are at the top of the list of concerns tied to cloud adoption. According to a recent 2017 Cloud Security survey to over 350,000 members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community, IT pros have general concerns about security in the cloud (33 percent), in addition to data loss and leakage risks (26 percent) and legal and regulatory compliance (24 percent)1. The number of reported breaches in enterprise datacenter environments still far exceeds the reported exposure from cloud platforms, but as businesses start using public clouds to run their mission-critical workloads, the need for enterprise-grade security in the cloud will increase. Public cloud environments require a centralized, consolidated platform for security that is built from the ground up for the cloud, and allows administrators to monitor and actively enforce security policies. The tools and techniques that worked to secure datacenter environments fail miserably in the cloud. Se

As of May 2017, according to a report from The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), which provides financial transaction and data processing services for the global financial industry, cloud computing has reached a tipping point1. Today, financial services companies can benefit from the capabilities and cost efficiencies of the cloud. In October of 2016, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) and the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) jointly announced enhanced cyber risk management standards for financial institutions in an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR)2. These proposed standards for enhanced cybersecurity are aimed at protecting the entire financial system, not just the institution. To meet these new standards, financial institutions will require the right cloud-based network security platform for comprehensive security management, verifiable compliance and governance and active protection of customer data

In our 2018 Trends in Information Security report, we outlined a concept we referred to as the ‘identity-aware perimeter.’ The essential idea is that as new architectures such as cloud, containers, mobility and IoT take hold, controlling access to resources will increasingly need to rely on identity as an alternative to purely network-based approaches focused more on ‘where’ you are than ‘who’ you are. By combining identity with user and entity behavior and risk scoring to gate access, Preempt fits squarely within this trend, which we think could be one of the most interesting and powerful to hit the infosec market in years. Preempt has few direct competitors, and its initial challenge will be finding ways to distinguish itself from vendors in adjacent categories such as adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), advanced threat protection, user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) and cloud access security brokers (CASB), to name a few. Forging a new security category is never easy,

Most organizations are in the midst of some form of digital transformation (DX), transforming how they bring products and services to the market—and ultimately deliver value to their customers. But DX initiatives also bring complexity for the network operations team. With business-critical services distributed across multiple clouds, this leads to potential performance issues, especially at branch locations. Given these realities, it is no wonder that software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) technology is rapidly going mainstream. Unfortunately, SD-WAN is an example of the paradox of DX: transformative technology can potentially move the business to the next level, but the expanded attack surface it creates can expose the organization to significant risk. That is why an SD-WAN deployment, like every other DX effort, should be accompanied by a security transformation (SX) that rethinks outdated principles, broadens protection beyond the data center, and integrates the security archit

Cloud services are a pillar of a digital transformation, but they have also become a thorn in the side of many security architects. As data and applications that were once behind the enterprise firewall began roaming free—on smartphones, between Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, and in the cloud—the threat landscape expanded rapidly. Security architects scrambled to adjust their technologies, policies, and procedures. But just when they thought they had a handle on securing their cloud-connected enterprises, new business imperatives indicated that one cloud wasn’t enough. Modern enterprises operate in a multi-cloud world, where the threat landscape has reached a new level of complexity. Security teams are juggling a hodgepodge of policies, threat reports, and management tools. When each cloud operates in its own silo, the security architect has even more difficulty supporting the CISO or CIO with a coherent, defensible security posture.

Companies are increasingly moving data and applications to public cloud platforms. Sometimes these transitions happen with IT’s approval and guidance; sometimes they don’t. Regardless, a company that stores data and uses applications in multiple public clouds creates a challenging environment for the security architect. It’s difficult to gain visibility and control of the security posture when the organization relies on an assortment of disparate cloud platforms that all take different approaches to security and offer different tools. And it’s hard for a small security staff to stay on top of disparate solutions that fail to integrate.

If your organization is one of the 95% of enterprises that operate in the cloud, you are already grappling with cloud security. And if your organization is one of the 85% of companies that use multiple Infrastructureas-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) clouds, you have additional issues to consider. Compared to the days when organizations managed everything on-premises or only had a handful of cloud deployments, this new multi-cloud world exacerbates the expansion of the attack surface and makes threat containment and accountability more difficult. Further, pressure on security teams to protect everything in the multi-cloud environment is leading to reactive and expensive threat management. If you are a security leader tasked with meeting the challenges of a multi-cloud environment, eventually you’ll find that siloed cloud security strategies fall short of the mark. But don’t wait. Now is the time to consider a holistic security approach that reclaims control from dispa

The personal cloud is the most persistent data loss threat to the enterprise today because many employees use their own cloud services to store work documents. Traditionally, content security solutions functionally link security and storage which requires the migration of work documents to a new content storage repository in order to enforce security policies. This increases complexity by creating more repositories for the enterprise to manage. Most importantly, this approach does not solve the personal cloud problem because individual users continue to store their work documents, for convenience, in cloud services that IT cannot secure.

Employees, devices, and applications are no longer locked away inside the corporate perimeter. They’re on the web and on the go. Providing security for a new breed of anytime, anywhere workers and cloud-based applications requires a novel approach: a zero trust security model. Assuming that every user, request, and server is untrusted until proven otherwise, a zero trust solution dynamically and continually assesses trust every time a user or device requests access to a resource. But zero trust offers more than a line of defense. The model’s security benefits deliver considerable business value, too.
