SANS 2020 Cloud Security Report | ExtraHop

Tooling and Migration Trends to Watch

Dale Norris

January 29, 2021

Cloud security is constantly evolving, but if recent history shows us anything, it's that evolution isn't always a slow process. Over the last year we've seen a dramatic increase in remote work environments spurred by a global pandemic and massive data breaches attributed in part to poor cloud security practices.

To help you get a handle on the current state of cloud security, ExtraHop enlisted the SANS Institute to conduct a global survey of security analysts and managers, cloud architects, and IT professionals. Download your SANS 2020 Cloud Security Survey results today.

This timely report will show you how organizations are approaching cloud migration, including whether they're using single cloud, multicloud, or hybrid architectures. You'll also gain insight into migration and tooling trends to watch in 2021 and beyond as security teams move from a protect-and-prevent mindset to one focused on detecting and responding to advanced threats.

Respondents also shared their biggest cloud security concerns, ranging from visibility gaps to difficulties in creating consistent policies across deployments, and the different approaches to setting up and using security operations centers (SOCs).

If you're more interested in the tools being used to secure hybrid and cloud architectures, SANS breaks down the prevalence of third-party and cloud-native products as well as their strengths and weaknesses. Product categories include network detection and response (NDR), endpoint detection and response (EDR), cloud workload protection platforms (CWPP), and more.

SANS also investigates whether respondents feel cloud-native tooling is equivalent to industry-leading security tools from third parties and dives deeper into what drives adoption of one product over another.
