IDC: Internet of Things Security Considerations in a Multicloud Environment

In this IDC Perspective report, research director Abhi Dugar looks at IoT security in the context of widespread cloud adoption, paying special attention to enterprises that maintain hybrid deployments. Dugar surmises that, while these multicloud environments help organizations avoid vendor lock-in and leverage best-of-breed services from various IaaS vendors, there are serious challenges to ensure security—especially IoT endpoint security—across disparate public and private clouds as well as campus and branch assets. His recommendations? - Adopt an agentless security approach - Invest in security solutions that are independent of any particular IaaS vendor’s model - Look for security platforms that can integrate well with multiple technologies
