Radware SecurePath Architecture a Solution for Security Silos Created by Multi-Cloud Application Security

Most organisations across verticals have already opted for and adopted the cloud. According to IBM’s report “State of the Multi-Cloud,” 96% of organizations have deployed at least one public cloud environment. This change has led to the way of multi-cloud on the belief of concept that not-one-solutions-fit-all. This is true, according to IBM’s report, 60% of companies now run at least two or more public cloud environments, and 30% run three or more. This means that a majority of companies today fall into the multi-cloud category. Now that multi-cloud is in place it also raises a lot of questions on security.

Some key challenges in securing web applications across hybrid environments or multi-could:
Quality of security: Most cloud-based security solutions are based on a “negative” security model, using static, manually defined security policies
Varying levels of protection: Maintaining the same level of protection across platforms is difficult, as each solution has different levels of security
Inconsistent security policies: Security policies between different environments are incompatible and inconsistent with each other
Point of failure: Inline WAF deployments invariably add another point of failure to the system. If they go down, all communication to the server is blocked
Increased latency: Going through third-party cloud networks, external to the public cloud environment, adds traffic hops
Tight coupling between security and delivery: Most cloud-based WAFs require tight coupling between a CDN and security, reducing operational agility and flexibility
SSL certificate sharing: Existing tools require the application’s SSL certificate, adding management overhead and violating user privacy
Fragmented logging and reporting: It’s difficult to get a view of the threats across platforms
No centralized management: Security breaks into silos with disparate management, leading to an overhead nightmare of managing multiple security tools for each platform

To overcome the challenges of multi-cloud application security, Radware’s application security architecture is specifically architected for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments to provide comprehensive, consistent and frictionless application protection regardless of where the application is deployed and without interfering with existing business and development processes.

The Radware SecurePath architecture provides several key advantages that address the challenges of multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud application protection:

State-of-the-art security: Provides industry-leading application security based on advanced behaviour-based machine-learning algorithms across multiple security modules, including WAF, bot manager, API protection, level -7 DDoS protection, threat intelligence and more
Deployment flexibility: Offers multiple deployment types (either cloud-based inline or API-based out-of-path deployment), and customers can choose whichever architecture they prefer for every application based on their preferred business or technical considerations
Wide variety of supported platforms: Provides native integrators with a variety of common cloud tools and DevOps frameworks, to enable frictionless integration into any environment
Single, centralized application security portal: Security for all applications, wherever they are, can be managed with full security protections (WAF, bot, API, and so on)

For every new-age technological problem, there needs to be a new-age solution; this is where Radware SecurePath comes into the picture. Multi and hybrid cloud is here to stay and their adoption by organizations is only said to increase. Keeping this in mind, organizations need solutions like SecurePath to help handle everyday challenges.
