What is multi-cloud security?
Multi-cloud security refers to a comprehensive set of policies, controls, and solutions designed to protect data, applications, and the associated infrastructure within a multi-cloud computing environment. When working with multiple cloud providers, safeguarding each platform's ecosystem becomes a critical concern. Confidential computing mitigates many of the risks associated with multi-cloud architectures by ensuring that data remains encrypted at all times.
Risks in the cloud
- Unauthorized access from outsiders
- Unauthorized access from cloud tenants and admins
- Different regulations across jurisdictions
- Complexity of individual cloud platforms
How confidential computing enhances multi-cloud architectures
Ensures compliance and data sovereignty
Confidential computing keeps data encrypted even during processing, ensuring data privacy and compliance with established privacy legislation such as GDPR.
Maintains consistent security protocols
Isolation from infrastructure side-steps vendor specific security vulnerabilities. Unauthorized access is blocked at every stage in the data lifecycle.Learn more
Prevents vendor lock-in
Because data is running within the same type of deployment, companies can move their data between clouds and infrastructure providers as needed.
Enables cross-border data sharing
With all data consistently encrypted, enterprises can take advantage of global cloud services without lowering their privacy requirements.
Reduces excessive costs
With the ability to securely host data and applications on various clouds, companies have additional alternatives to expensive on-prem architectures.
Provides additional hosting options
Because data remains encrypted and inaccessible even to cloud providers, businesses have additional choice in which infrastructure providers to use.
