Cloud security is still a work in progress

As a cloud architect, I am amazed that cloud security is still so hard. We’ve had identity access management (IAM) for more than a decade. Now we have deep encryption services, key management, and most recently, zero trust and secure access service edge (SASE).

Despite all this security technology, security solutions have become more complex and difficult to operate as cloud deployments themselves become more complex. As the technology and technology concepts (such as SASE) add more big ideas to the problem, the growth of cloud, Internet of Things, edge computing, and now work from anywhere quickly outpaces our ability to provide workable and cost-effective security. Our deployments become less secure rather than more.
