Adam Gavish, co-founder and CEO at DoControl, said given the upswing in multi-cloud adoption across all major cloud categories, it's not surprising that organizations are struggling to reduce the noise of false positives: it’s like finding anomalies in an environment that’s fundamentally anomalous.
“Cloud security in this landscape is becoming more and more decentralized, and the more decentralized your cloud estate is, the more false positives you are likely to experience,” Gavish said. “There’s also the challenge of IT and security teams being stretched thin. There's a very real shortage in security professionals in the market. The hasty changes that were made to support remote work on the heels of the pandemic adds even more complexity. All of these swirling issues coupled together create significant challenges for businesses leveraging cloud.”
