What is the hot issue of cloud security in 2020?
Let’s see it with MONITORAPP that drives cloud security market.
Continued growth of the cloud market
The cloud is one of the many new technologies of the fourth industrial revolution, with a large market size and significant growth. U.S. market research firm Gartner Inc. also forecast the global market for public cloud services to reach 460 trillion won by 2020. In particular, the average annual growth rate in the cloud market is expected to be three times that of the overall IT market.
This year, it will grow more than 20 percent in Korea.
The domestic cloud market is also growing. In 2019, local conglomerates, which were rather conservative in their transition to the cloud, moved to ensure that the transition to the cloud was essential. In 2018, Korean Air decided to transform its enterprise systems into a public cloud for the first time in Korea. In a press conference in March this year, LG CNS said it would switch its IT systems by more than 90 percent by 2023. Samsung SDS also said 90 percent of Samsung's IT systems have been moved to the cloud, and SK recently announced that it will move about 80 percent of its affiliates' major IT systems to the cloud. According to the Ministry of Science and Technology, the domestic cloud market has grown by an average of 16.8 percent annually and expects to grow by more than 20 percent this year. As a result, global cloud service providers are rapidly expanding their services in Korea. AWS recently added available areas, and MS added data centers.
The Cloud Is Popular in the Security Market
As the cloud market grows, the security market is also in the spotlight for services that can prevent cloud security incidents and cloud-based security services.Security services such as Cloud Workload Protect Platform (CWPP), a cloud workload protection platform that blocks attempts to detect and violate Workload and Container vulnerabilities, and Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Cloud Access Broker (CASB) which is a cloud security feature manager that helps detect and correct security errors in the cloud and provides visibility into data in the cloud and control user access, Security as a Service (SECaaS) that allows users to access security services by posting infrastructure in the cloud area have emerged as a new source of security. SECaaS is a type of SaaS called ‘cloud-based security’ or ‘security cloud’. The industry sees SECaaS as a response to an advanced web attack and a countermeasure against a massive cyber attack.
The evolution of cloud computing enables a variety of services
Cloud computing has recently expanded to the network layer, enabling a variety of security services to be delivered to the cloud through SD-WAN, VPN, and more. Companies recently leverage a software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) infrastructure to enable controllers in their headquarters data center or cloud environments to consolidate and control a variety of branch-level network equipment for efficient utilization of network resources. Administrators can eliminate the need to configure and manage individual equipment, and can easily apply new features and policies.
Enter SECaaS for a variety of security solutions.
The advantages of a cloud environment - ‘centralized security management, threat detection and response, rapid deployment, zero complexity compliance, and visibility into your IT infrastructure’ - have become an advantage of SECaaS. Currently, any security features such as DLP, Firewall, DNS Filtering, Anti- virus, DNS security, IPS are not only available with SECaaS, but are evolving more efficiently, and are becoming more sophisticated through the cloud. This year, a variety of security features, including web protection (blocking websites), anti-malware, anti-virus, and checking PC vulnerabilities, have been cloud-based, and the units of service have been segmented.
"Integration" is a trend and a big trend.
The key is to allow individual security solutions and services to work efficiently and organically, and to see the flow. Container-based micro-service architectures are in the spotlight, enabling integration of a wide variety of different security suites.
