Cloud workloads, deployed into highly dynamic environments, typically use and coexist with a wide range of cloud providers and third-party platforms and services. The workloads themselves can be built for cloud platforms, consist of serverless applications, or be designed for on-premises data centers and later migrated to the cloud. Workloads might run unchanged for weeks or months, or only exist for a few seconds.
Under the shared responsibility model of cloud security, organizations must own the security of their cloud workloads, but because of their complex ephemeral nature, they can be difficult to secure with existing tools. Cloud workload security entails a careful evaluation of the visibility and security gaps left by their existing cloud security solutions, and ultimately a strategic decision about which additional security technologies are needed to fill those gaps.
