Increasingly dynamic cloud environments are presenting visibility challenges for security. Indeed, the majority of organizations claim that lack of access to physical networks, the dynamic nature of cloud-native applications, and elastic cloud infrastructure create blind spots, making security monitoring challenging. SOC teams need to address this cloud visibility gap by collecting, processing, monitoring, and acting upon information from an assortment of cloud security telemetry sources.

Additionally, nearly all organizations experienced a cloud security incident in the last year, resulting in application downtime, unauthorized access, data loss, and compliance fines. Thus, cloud security limitations can impact the business. Understanding this risk, executives and corporate boards are demanding measurable progress. Given the rise of digital transformation and cloud-native software development, CISOs must align threat detection and response spending with an increasing array of cloud-based business-critical workloads.

To gain further insight into these trends, TechTarget’s Enterprise Strategy Group surveyed 393 IT and cybersecurity professionals at organizations in North America (US and Canada) responsible for evaluating or purchasing cloud security technology products and services.
