Best Practices for Multi-Cloud Data SecurityCybersecurity Experts Discuss Requirements of Data Protection Architecture
Peter Mahoney, global alliances Americas DPS presales senior manager at Dell Technologies, and Ana Maria Ordonez, global solutions architect at Equinix, discuss how to achieve consistent security across physical, containerized and virtual workloads.
For years, organizations either fought the cloud or embraced it, says Peter Mahoney, but now enterprises are leveraging capabilities of various cloud providers at one time. "The biggest challenge is that each of these public cloud providers has unique tools, and it's not a standardized capability across all of those different domains at the same time."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Mahoney and Ordonez discuss:
- The challenges organizations face as they embark on their digital transformations, moving from data centers to hybrid multi-clouds;
- Common gaps in enterprises' legacy architecture;
- Strategies to safeguard mission-critical data across multi-cloud environments.
Mahoney has over 20 years of experience in Dell's data protection solutions. His team of specialized engineers focuses on creating "as-a-service" offerings within Dell's Global Alliances ecosystem - to solve complex business problems such as protecting workloads in a hybrid environment and providing solutions to combat ransomware and cyberattacks. He helps deploy modern data protection solutions for customers in various phases of their digital transformation journey.
