IT@Intel Next Step to Multicloud: Native Cloud Security Controls

Intel IT has replaced many of our third-party security solutions with native cloud security controls. We made this significant change to our multicloud strategy because of three reasons:

• Technology: Cloud service provider (CSP) integrated security controls have matured to the point where many of them meet our stringent security requirements.
• Process: We standardized our cloud security processes so that we can better understand and work with CSPs.
• People: Our team embraces change and has acquired the necessary skillset.

It is important to note that where needed and as part of due diligence, we continue to use some third-party solutions to augment native controls. We evaluate each cloud-based security control to verify that it meets our minimal viable product requirements. This helps us provide Intel with “defense in depth.” We’ve been adjusting and streamlining our multicloud strategy for several years, and the process is not yet over—there is still much to learn and more changes to make. But the move to native cloud security controls has produced significant business benefits, including faster deployment and business agility; more consistent, cloud-native user and developer experience; and reduced complexity and costs.
