pliant. For example, organizations using cloud providers in the European Union need to meet General Data Protection Regulation requirements. Understanding the policies for each location in which you are deployed and then enforcing those policies is a key part of the planning. Beyond regulatory policies, organizations need to ensure that secu‐ rity is enforced in the same manner across all cloud installations. This is easier to do using containers over VMs. But you do need to worry about the hardware on which the containers operate. Under‐ standing the patch and enforcement policies of each cloud provider and, if necessary, compensating for any deficiencies in their process should be part of your planning. The complexity inherent in any multicloud solution can be some‐ what mitigated by standardizing a management solution across all cloud providers that enforces policies and provides full visibility. The Edge Allows for Simpler Managed Services Offerings In the end, focusing security solutions at the edge rather than the core makes it easier to incorporate managed service offerings as part of your multicloud architecture. The organization will benefit from being able to quickly deploy these solutions across all cloud provid‐ ers, and it will help keep costs down by using only the services it needs. Edge deployment of managed services also makes it easier to deploy new managed services as needed. Organizations that are just starting the process of moving to the cloud might want to focus on deploy‐ ing WAFs initially but hold off on other forms of protection. When you are ready to add additional services, it will be easier to find and deploy the right service across the entire multicloud architecture solution. As web applications continue to grow, the managed services foot‐ print can grow along with them. Organizations can add new provid‐ ers and enable new services within existing providers. This type of deployment-on-demand also makes it easier to switch managed services offerings when a vendor isn't performing properly or the organization simply outgrows its capabilities. 50 | Chapter 4: Multicloud Security Use Cases
