Living in an increasingly connected world. Many organisations are moving operations to the cloud. However, due to scale and complexity issues, many opt to connect Windows Server active directory to Azure active directory to form a hybrid identity solution. Although vendors offer good cloud security and compliance solutions, these often come at a premium in terms of cost and are often not always ideal for hybrid scenarios.

As hackers refocus their attention to the weaknesses of older technologies, such as Active Directory. It’s imperative to increase security on-premises to keep the bad guys from exploiting potential weaknesses. Join Microsoft MVP, Andy Malone as we delve into the security risks posed by connecting and integrating on-premises systems into the cloud. We’ll discuss security risks, as well as offer practical advice and solutions that will strengthen your line of defence.

Cybersecurity threats and the hybrid cloud

Cybersecurity threats and the hybrid cloud are increasingly becoming a major concern for businesses. A hybrid cloud is a combination of public and private clouds, with each type offering its own unique advantages and disadvantages. The key to successful cybersecurity in the hybrid cloud environment is understanding how each component works together to create an effective security system.

The public cloud provides flexibility as it allows organizations to access computing services on demand, while the private cloud offers control over data storage and processing power. By combining these two elements, companies can have greater control over their data while still benefiting from scalability and cost savings associated with the public cloud. However, this also brings increased risk due to potential exposure of sensitive information or malicious attacks by hackers or cyber criminals.

To effectively protect against cyber threats in a hybrid environment, organizations must use multiple layers of defense such as firewalls, antivirus software, encryption technology and more advanced identity management solutions like multi-factor authentication (MFA). Additionally, IT teams should also be trained on best practices for securing both types of clouds so that any vulnerabilities can be identified quickly before they become serious issues. Finally, regular testing should be conducted to ensure that all systems remain up-to-date with current security measures in place at all times.
