As organizations increasingly embrace digital transformation, cloud migrations, and deployments have become essential for success. However, with cloud apps and agile infrastructure come a host of complexities and risks that must be carefully managed through the use of appropriate tools, processes, and connections.Several factors are driving the adoption of public cloud, including the ever-increasing volume of data resulting from new retention policies and regulations across industries. Additionally, disruptive competitors require introducing new products and services at an accelerated pace and evolving regulatory, data, and technical requirements are creating operational obstacles. Furthermore, support for mission-critical legacy applications is dwindling, necessitating infrastructure migration or decommissioning.As cloud computing applications and workloads proliferate, organizations often struggle with rising operational and security complexity levels, limiting system visibility and leading to unexpected threats and security risks.
Successful cloud migration offers significant benefits to organizations, including cost reductions, improved scalability, and a significant decrease in cyber incident risk. Furthermore, cloud adoption offers optimized scalability, faster and smarter integrations, and greater access to business-critical functionality. Cloud migration enables IT departments to reshape overall infrastructure dramatically and leverage new technologies, as they are no longer constrained by on-premises hardware and software refresh cycles.However, organizations face significant challenges when moving workloads to the cloud, according to The State of Cloud Native Security, Palo Alto Networks, 2020. These include technical complexity, maintaining comprehensive security, and ensuring compliance.
