Over the last few months, I have been in many discussions with Enterprise CIOs and CISOs after they have realized the security and visibility challenges they now face after committing to fully and formally adopting a hybrid architecture for their Enterprise ITs.
These discussions have been fascinating and stimulating and have had an uncanny amount of similarity regardless of enterprise size, market segment, industry vertical or even enterprise age. (However, it’s worth noting that all of these customer conversations have been with organizations that are old enough to have a significant on-premise infrastructure IE that’s at least a few years old).
The story arc for all of them is similar, with a similar set of systemic challenges now facing these organizations. Let’s take a look at how they got here and the options they have going forward.
