With remote work and reliance on cloud computing here to stay, it’s no surprise how many headlines there are to address the growing cloud security concerns in our industry.
While there is a time and place for onboarding additional cloud security solutions, it can also be easy to fall prey to the shiny object syndrome surrounding emerging solutions that are created in response to new security threats. Before rushing to invest in a new solution, however, remember that matching additional solutions to emerging threats in a one-to-one game of whack-a-mole is not a sustainable strategy.
At conferences, I always find a host of companies selling “x is hard, we make it easy” point solutions, and often too many enterprises rushing to invest in them. These quick decisions are often poorly planned, sometimes unnecessary, and end up creating expensive and complex architectures that achieve the opposite of what is intended.
