Secure Connection Requirements of Hybrid Cloud

Release Date: 11/05/2021

Working Group: Hybrid Cloud Security

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines hybrid cloud infrastructure as a composition of distinct cloud infrastructures (private, community, and/or public) that remain unique entities. These infrastructures are bound together by standardized or proprietary technology that enables data and application portability.

Hybrid cloud is becoming an essential enterprise cloud model that allows the best of both worlds, providing customers with diverse resources to run different workloads depending on their needs. To successfully secure this complex landscape, enterprises should develop and employ perimeter, transmission, storage, and management cross-cloud security capabilities. This document from the Hybrid Cloud Security Working Group lists best practices for these four areas of security, along with their applicability to the Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM).

Key Takeaways:
  • What private, public, community, and hybrid cloud are
  • Cross-cloud security best practices
  • The ideal architecture for hybrid cloud connectivity
  • The CCM v4 control domains referenced in these cross-cloud security capabilities
