AlgoSec, a leading network security solution provider, commissioned CSA to develop a survey to add to the industry’s knowledge about hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud security. This report of the survey’s findings will help you better understand the current cloud security landscape, including the most pressing concerns, challenges, and incidents.
