For many state and local governments, moving to the cloud means embracing hybrid clouds. This flexible model combines on-premises data centers and private clouds with public cloud resources, such as infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) capabilities.
The result: IT organizations can quickly benefit from innovative cloud services while still deriving value from their existing technology investments.
But how can CIOs and CISOs accurately assess the security expertise and capabilities of potential cloud providers? This paper helps answer that question by:
- Taking a look at the current security landscape for state and local government and new considerations that arise as agencies increase commitments to hybrid clouds
- Explaining how to use public cloud services to enhance defenses, fill gaps in security expertise, and capitalize on artificial intelligence and machine learning for advanced security capabilities
- Offering a four-step guide to secure hybrid infrastructures now and as they continue to evolve over time
