Report: The State of Cloud Native Security

Company: Palo Alto

Two truths and a lie: The cloud is the future. Cloud adoption is undeniable. Cloud expansion is simple.

The fact is too many companies moving complex operations to the cloud struggle to automate cloud security and mitigate risks. Cloud infrastructure is more dynamic than ever, and the pressure to expand cloud usage and create new efficiencies is intense.

So, we surveyed 3,000 cloud security and DevOps professionals around the world to identify their challenges, understand how they handle them and illustrate what they’ve learned in the process. Topics included details about their cloud adoption and expansion strategies, cloud budgets, organizational experiences and future plans.

The result is in our 2022 State of Cloud Native Security report, and some of the findings may surprise you:

  • 55% of organizations report a weak security posture and believe they need to improve their underlying activities—such as gaining multicloud visibility, applying more consistent governance across accounts or streamlining incident response and investigation—to achieve a stronger posture.
  • 69% of organizations host more than half of their workloads in the cloud.
  • 80% of organizations that primarily use open source security tools have weak or very weak security posture.

The good news: Even with today’s complex, heterogeneous cloud environments, research also reveals that finding the path to successful cloud expansion and security improvements has never been easier to follow.

Get the report for the pro tips and insights you need to automate cloud security, integrate DevSecOps capabilities and clear the obstructions from your path to the cloud.
