According to Hybrid Pathways Peer Networking Survey, 85% of senior IT and Security leaders are using native cloud security services and supplementing with 3rd party solutions. Enterprises have already invested in 3rd party security services to provide visibility and functionality that the native cloud security services do not yet offer. IT and security leaders currently have limited confidence in the maturity of native services from the major cloud service providers (Microsoft, Amazon, Google, etc.) and plan to maintain the same mix of native and 3rd party services for at least the next 12 months.

Hybrid Pathways Insight:
Enterprises typically leverage multiple cloud providers and therefore rely on 3rd party security services to provide a consistent cross-platform experience. For example, Palo Alto Networks has made positive strides with its Evident.io acquisition to improve security and compliance visibility across multiple cloud providers.
As Microsoft, Amazon and Google continue to improve their native security services and their ability to operate across platforms, companies may achieve cost savings by eliminating some 3rd party services. An enterprise’s security service choices will depend on the cloud providers that they are using and the functionality that the business requires.
Hybrid Pathways facilitated a Peer Knowledge Sharing survey with IT and Security leaders. The questions were submitted by the leaders and feedback was gathered from their peers in large enterprises across multiple industries. Cloud Security Services was a topic of concern.
If you have questions you’d like to ask your peers in our next survey, please let us know.
