Cloud adoption is ubiquitous, and many organizations have adopted a cloud-first deployment policy. However, organizations continue to use on-premises infrastructure. Thus, the new normal IT infrastructure is hybrid multi-cloud. In such an environment, the perimeter becomes amorphous and dynamic, changing rapidly as organizations spin up new applications.
Unfortunately, one-third of respondents to "The State of Data Privacy and Compliance" research survey said they have lost cloud-resident data. More concerning is that an additional 28% of organizations suspect they have lost cloud-resident data but don't know for sure because they lack data observability.
