The Balance of Hybrid
Aptum's Cloud Impact Study
New for 2022: SOLVING THE SECURITY EQUATION

“Security is an issue because as organizations add more environments, they inherit the security problems that come with each of them, as well as the resiliency, cost, and data governance implications.”

The report examines the complexities inherent in hybrid cloud environments and their implications on security, data governance, compliance, and disaster recovery. In particular, it finds that while companies are convinced of the value of cloud computing, its drivers have evolved.
