Closing the Cloud Security Readiness Gap

The composition of cloud-native applications is a mix of APIs, containers, VMs, and serverless functions continuously integrated and delivered. Securing these applications, the underlying infrastructure, and the automation platforms that orchestrate their deployment, necessitates revisiting threat models, gaining organizational alignment, and leveraging purposeful controls. Additionally, as security and DevOps continue to converge, cloud security controls are being consolidated. Project teams are evolving from a siloed approach to a unified strategy to securing cloud-native applications and platforms.

In order to gain insight into these trends, ESG surveyed 383 IT and cybersecurity professionals at organizations in North America (US and Canada) personally responsible for evaluating or purchasing cloud security technology products and services.

Fortinet on Google Cloud

Fortinet on Google Cloud helps organizations to achieve a robust and consistent defense-in-depth posture to secure both on-premises and cloud-native workloads. The solution delivers network, application, and cloud platform security capabilities that integrate Fortinet security functionality into Google Cloud. Security capabilities are provided in VM-, container-, and SaaS-delivered protection.

An increasing number of organizations are adopting a cloud-first policy, expedited via the use of cloud-native applications and services. However, ESG research has found that 88% of respondents believe that their cybersecurity programs need to evolve to secure their cloud-native applications and use of public cloud infrastructure. When it comes to the biggest cloud-native application security challenges, respondents cited maintaining security consistently across their data centers and public cloud environments (47%), increasing cost and complexity using multiple cybersecurity controls (40%), lacking understanding of the threat model for cloud-native applications and infrastructure (31%), and lacking visibility into public cloud infrastructure (30%).

This ESG Technical White Paper documents the evaluation of Fortinet on Google Cloud. We examined how Fortinet delivers integrated and consistent network, application, and cloud security for workloads deployed on Google Cloud.

Fortinet on Google Cloud:

Ensuring Consistent Defense-In-Depth Across On-Premises and Cloud-Native Workloads

As organizations increase their use of public cloud, they continue to reap the benefits of business agility, flexibility, and scalability. Yet, consistently maintaining an organization's security posture across its on-premises and public cloud environments can be difficult and cumbersome. This is especially challenging as traffic moves across core and edge networks and the public cloud.

Implementing numerous and disparate point solutions from multiple vendors addresses a variety of attack vectors but these solutions are difficult to integrate and automate easily and are thus unable to provide consistent defense-in-depth and visibility across organizations' hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments. Simply put, the adoption of public cloud services has outpaced the maturity of cybersecurity programs to provide the consistency and visibility organizations require to detect and mitigate threats and breaches.

As ESG research has uncovered, respondents have major concerns with securing cloud-native applications running in hybrid clouds and multi-cloud environments, and many are already experiencing security breaches as a result.

Your MDM Doesn’t Want You to Read This (But We Do!)

If you’ve ever worked with an MDM (Mobile Device Management) to build and manage an Android device fleet, you know how one-sided that relationship becomes once your hardware is in the field. You also know that’s because MDMs are built on a model that chiefly rewards shipping devices, not supporting them. It’s hard to blame them, either — in a world where getting devices to the edge has become a critical concern across dozens of industries, hardware talks. But if you’re scaling a mission critical Android device fleet, you’re already asking the kind of hard questions your MDM probably isn’t very eager to answer.

MDM is Dead. It’s Time to Shift to Android DevOps

Alright, so maybe not completely dead, but Mobile Device Management (MDM) - while necessary - cannot (alone) meet the needs of innovative, agile businesses, especially when customer experience and value are on the line.

With MDM, you can’t control the intake of changes to a fleet - risking widespread downtime - or debug your applications in real-time to prevent poor user experience. Enter Android DevOps where quality and speed are at the heart of dedicated device management.

According to Sam Guckenheimer of Microsoft Azure, “For a DevOps team...everything they do is about making a customer’ experience better.” Android DevOps enables businesses to focus on their business - not the platform - so they can deliver the ultimate customer experience.

Continue reading to learn more about how making the shift to Android DevOps can help you get back to what matters most: delighting your customers.

How Strong is Your MDM Security?

6 Layer MDM Cybersecurity Self-Assessment

MDM security in 2020 must be dynamic. You need the flexibility to deploy and manage single-purpose Android devices according to use cases. MDM should offer features to completely wipe and re-provision devices at any given point during the device lifecycle. Most importantly, MDM security should allow real-time or automated response based on insights into devices, apps, and user behaviors.

According to the 2020 Verizon Mobile Security Index (MSI), 66% of organizations admit a mobile cybersecurity issue has spiraled into a “significant organizational calamity” in the past, Your chances of experiencing a mobile cybersecurity incident in the next two years are 28%.

Your mobile security risks vary depending on device type, industry, and most importantly, use case. Pay attention to this 42-point checklist to determine if your MDM security is at risk.
