Global cloud service spending continues to rise, and China's cloud security market has entered a golden period
With global supply chain shortages, cybersecurity threats, and geopolitical instability escalating, cloud business transformation has become a top priority for businesses. Small and medium-sized enterprises, in particular, have begun to increase their investment in cloud infrastructure services to support workload migration, data storage services, and the development of cloud-native applications. At the same time, the threat of infrastructure hardware shortages and escalating costs has spurred many large enterprises to focus on long-term, high-volume cloud service contracts. In the first quarter of 2022, global spending on cloud infrastructure services increased by 34% year-on-year to reach $55.9 billion, and enterprises have responded to the challenges of the market by making digital a top strategy for development. According to the latest statistics from Canalys, a well-known international research institute, the overall spending on cloud services increased by $2 billion from the previous quarter and $14 billion from the first quarter of 2021.
It can be seen that the future of cloud computing is still optimistic. As enterprises emphasize digital flexibility in strategic transformation, with the help of cloud computing, enterprises can calmly respond to current and future market challenges.
Of course, cloud computing is not a one-size-fits-all approach to enterprise, Canalys research analyst also said: "As cloud infrastructure services become more widely used and the underlying complexity increases, hybrid and multi-cloud services are deployed in the market. It’s becoming more and more common.
” With the rapid development of cloud computing, with the increasing complexity of the cloud environment, its potential security issues cannot be ignored, which is the key to determining whether an enterprise can make good use of the cloud. Recently, Gartner, an international authoritative consulting organization, released an analysis report "
Top Practices for Cloud Security in China" based on its research on China's security market and the evaluation of China's security product suppliers. Different from the previous recommendations for the global market, Gartner provides an independent report on the Chinese market segment, which is enough to show that the Chinese cloud security market has attracted worldwide attention. The report shows that China is a very unique market, facing some globally common challenges in the field of cloud security: such as whether or how to trust the public cloud, but also facing some local-specific difficulties: such as technical feasibility and how to choose the correct CSP ( Abbreviation for "Cloud Service Provider", meaning "Cloud Service Provider"). In the research unit from the National Industrial Information Security Development Research Center (Electronics Institute of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology), the data from CCW Information also supports this point. The domestic cloud security market is in an explosive growth trend and has entered a golden period of development. The world is watching. In 2020, the scale of China's cloud security market is 8.04 billion yuan, an increase of 45.9% year-on-year; in 2021, the scale of China's cloud security market is 11.77 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 46.4%; it is estimated that by 2022, the scale of China's cloud security market will reach 17.33 billion yuan around, a year-on-year increase of 47.2%
Cloud security capability has always been the main direction of the development of cloud computing platforms. The rapidly growing demand for cloud computing will also bring new trends in the development of cloud security. Whether enterprises choose public cloud or hybrid deployment mode, it is difficult to escape the trouble of cloud security. . That is to say, with the increasing complexity of enterprise IT architecture, the multi-cloud strategy has become the choice of most cloud companies. How to optimize cloud management and ensure cloud security in a complex multi-cloud environment? Many experts in the field of cloud computing are also exploring related extension issues. Cloud platform management (Boxun can provide related services) has realized the centralized management of various cloud computing resources of multiple cloud vendors, from cost, automatic operation and maintenance, monitoring, It provides unified operation and maintenance management and control in multiple dimensions such as compliance auditing, multi-cloud management, and the full life cycle of cloud resources. For enterprises in the predicament of multi-cloud and hybrid clouds, only one console can integrate and operate multiple public A private cloud, hybrid cloud, and various heterogeneous resources can effectively shield the differences in enterprise cloud usage with diverse infrastructure, heterogeneous network resource access, and different cloud resource models, ensuring the security of enterprise cloud usage. In addition, with the successive promulgation of the "Data Security Law", "Personal Information Protection Law", "Several Provisions on Automobile Data Security Management (Trial)", "Key Information Infrastructure Security Protection Regulations" and other regulations in recent years, security compliance has also become a One of the important tasks of the enterprise. Through the improvement of laws and regulations to strengthen management and control, as early as December 1, 2019, the network security level protection system (classified protection 2.0) has been implemented. Over-classified protection is not only an internal requirement and measurement index for enterprises to "do the security prevention in place" , has also become an external requirement of enterprises at the legal level, and is the "must pass the benchmark" for many enterprises' information security management. As an industry-leading multi-cloud management platform, Xingyun Butler cloud management platform has built-in cloud fortress function module, supports multi-cloud and hybrid cloud IT heterogeneous network environment, provides services to customers in the form of SaaS, one-click installation, no hardware investment, It also complies with the relevant qualification requirements for security operation and maintenance products in the relevant government departments' regulations on the protection of security, fully meets the compliance requirements for the evaluation of the quality assurance 2.0, and has also passed the strict test of the Ministry of Public Security and obtained the "Sales License for Special Products for Computer Information System Security". , to provide users with functions such as compliance account management system, identity authentication mechanism, resource authorization model, and security operation and maintenance audit. In the uncertain external environment, facing various unstable factors in business, enterprises actively adopt cloud computing with flexible computing capabilities to cope with unpredictable market conditions, which is undoubtedly beneficial to the future development of enterprises , Since cloud computing will carry most of the sensitive business data of the enterprise, how to ensure the security of the enterprise's cloud access and use of the cloud, the best solution after multi-party practice is to use a third-party independent cloud management platform, the cloud hosting service launched by Boxun It is worth the practice of the majority of enterprise users
