Many find themselves with infrastructures that include cloud, multi-cloud, hybrid, on-premise, and containerized environments. So what do you need to do to protect these complex structures?

We recently conducted a survey with ESG Strategy Group (Threat Stack Cloud Security Report 2017: Security at Speed & Scale) to learn more about the realities of hybrid environments today.
