Gigamon, the leading deep observability company, has released findings from its first Visibility for Multi-Cloud Migrations survey.

Commissioned by Pulse.qa, a division of Gartner, the study surveyed IT and InfoSec leaders to identify challenges associated with advancing their multi-cloud strategies.

According to the survey, the majority of respondents believe there is room for improvement in visibility to assure the security, compliance and performance of their hybrid and multi-cloud workloads.

According to a recent Pew Research survey, 64% of Americans are choosing to remain in either a fully remote or hybrid working environment, forcing businesses to grapple with the increasing complexity that comes with migrating and scaling workloads in the cloud. As such, Pulse.qa survey respondents rank visibility into cloud data-in-motion as the top security factor globally.

“For any business to maintain a competitive edge in a world filled with increasing security risk and IT complexity, requires deep observability across their hybrid and multi-cloud environments,” said Bassam Khan, Vice President of Product and Technical Marketing at Gigamon.

“While the path to application and infrastructure modernization varies for every business, closing this visibility gap is essential to securing and optimizing the network to deliver a superior user experience.”

To address cloud migration challenges, of those surveyed, 82% of IT and InfoSec leaders prefer best-of-breed third-party security monitoring tools over cloud platform provider tools.
