This IDC perspective seeks to assist organizations as they move to the cloud by providing some stability in the process as it explores three common pitfalls to avoid: applying traditional security approaches to your cloud deployment model, neglecting to reengineer SecOps for hybrid cloud environments, and failing to remove legacy business processes.

As businesses map out their cloud journeys, they experience benefits including ease of use, technology infrastructure cost savings, faster application deployments, enhanced user productivity, near-limitless scalability, and better access to trained security practitioners. Yet their greatest concern about cloud adoption is during the migration of workloads to the cloud.

"Part of your cloud security audit road map should be focused on reducing best-of-breed point solutions and moving to a platform approach, enabling multifactor authentication, implementing single sign-on where possible, and providing cloud security education and training at all levels of the organization to reduce organizational friction and improve your security posture," said Phil Bues, research manager, Cloud Security, IDC. "Cobbling this all together from multiple vendor solutions ultimately leads to customized environments that must be maintained, often at a high cost."
