The state of Cloud-Native Security: Key takeaways from Palo Alto Networks

Palo Alto Networks has released its 2023 State of Cloud-Native Security Report, which surveyed over 2,500 C-level executives to better understand enterprise cloud and cloud-native adoption. The survey found that organizations have increased their cloud usage by over 25% from the previous year, with cloud-native architectures for application packaging and deployment becoming more commonplace. The report also revealed that enterprises are adopting cloud and cloud-native technologies for reasons beyond just cost, such as flexibility, improving processes and workflows, mitigating business and regulatory risk and expanding into new markets.

Cloud adoption is increasing and so are its inherent risks plus integrating security into DevOps teams is becoming increasingly important! The survey numbers say that among organizations

  • 90% can’t detect & resolve cloud cyber threats quickly
  • 81% embed security professionals in DevOps teams
  • 78% have distributed cloud security responsibility to individual teams
  • 47% report that most of their workforce lacks an understanding of security responsibilities.

The top challenges faced by organizations today are:

  1. Cloud complexity hinders enterprise benefits as they fail to realize the cloud advantages
  2. Managing holistic security across teams.
  3. Embedding Security across Development Lifecycle
  4. Shortage of expertise or absence of consulting support
  5. Ensuring adherence to compliance standards

According to a survey:

  • 81% of respondents would benefit from a centralized security solution across all their cloud accounts and services.
  • 78% of respondents believe that cloud security needs greater straight-out-of-the-box operation.

Open-source applications, libraries and tools are enabling organizational agility and velocity, but ensuring the integrity of software dependencies is a complex challenge. Palo Alto Networks’ report highlights the need for practical solutions to address these challenges, such as centralized security solutions and greater out-of-the-box operation for cloud security.

The report discusses the challenges of managing security risks in the cloud and cloud-native architectures. It highlights the differences between traditional server-focused infrastructure and cloud-native cybersecurity. We recommend you take a look at this report by Palo Alto to gain a better understanding of the challenges organizations face in managing their cloud-native activities.
