Hybrid IT Requires Hybrid Security : Time for a Security Remodel


For most companies, their information technology (IT) environments are growing and diversifying across both cloud and private data center environments. While there are instances of uniformity, for example, “born in the cloud” companies that host and operate all of their workloads in data centers and servers owned and operated by one or more cloud providers, there are also companies that intend to retain full ownership and oversight, from the physical data center up through their software applications.

For most, however, a hybrid or mixed environment is the current; and, as our survey data points out in Figure 1, the future as well. With this movement to hybrid IT environments, a principal IT responsibility has become optimizing workload placement along the dimensions of performance (e.g., transaction speed, reliability, and agility) and cost.

If only performance and cost were the only dimensions to consider. In reality, they are not. The networked world is not a safe place, as hackers and cyber data thieves are all too anxious and prepared to exploit vulnerabilities wherever they exist.

Consequently, IT and their information security (InfoSec) brethren have the added responsibility to “fit” security technologies and practices into this dynamic morass of IT environments and deployment models. This integration is no easy task, as the same dimensions—performance (in security terms: do not impede business operations) and cost (do not spend more than what is essential)—remain omnipresent while security efficacy is simultaneously expected. Again, this is no simple task, especially in the context of the multiple business objectives that depend on reliable security operations, such as:

- Meet compliance requirements
- Identify and remove malware and viruses from systems
- Reduce exposure attributable to software vulnerabilities
- Detect, investigate, and respond to indicators of compromise and hacker reconnaissance
- Defeat cyberattacks aimed at undermining system uptime, responsiveness, and integrity
- Guide employees in their use of internal and external resources, safely and appropriately

In this insight, we further outline the operational challenges that a hybrid IT environment presents to security; and we review the merits of Trend Micro’s Hybrid Cloud Security in addressing these challenges.

    • I have had negative experiences with market research reports before. How can you avoid this from happening again?
    • We advise all clients to read the TOC and Summary and list your questions so that we can get more insight for you before you make any purchase decision. A research advisor will accompany you so that you can compare samples and reports from different sources, and choose the study that is right for you.

  • Report Delivery
    • How and when I will receive my Report?
    • Most reports are delivered right away in a pdf format, while others are accessed via a secure link and access codes. Do note that sometimes reports are sent within a 12 hour period, depending on the time zones. However, you can contact us to escalate this. Should you need a hard copy, you can check if this option is offered for the particular report, and pay the related fees.
  • Payment conditions
    • What payment methods do you accept?
      1. Credit card : VISA, American Express, Mastercard, or
      2. You can download an invoice to pay by wire transfer, check, or via a Purchase Order from your company, or

    • I’m not satisfied. Can I be refunded?
    • No. Once your order has been processed and the publisher has received a notification to send you the report, we cannot issue any refund or cancel any order. As these are not ‘traditional’ products that can be returned, reports that are dispatched are considered to be ‘consumed’.
  • User license
    • The license that you should acquire depends on the number of persons that need to access the report. This can range from Single User (only one person will have the right to read or access the report), or Department License (up to 5 persons), to Site License (a group of persons based in the same company location), or Corporate License (the entire company personnel based worldwide). However, as publishers have different terms and conditions, we can look into this for you.
