Oracle has joined the Cloud Security Notification Framework (CSNF), a project to create a standardized framework for dealing with cloud security problems in business multi-cloud environments that often employ a range of cloud services.
Since many cloud service providers use their own security reporting systems, this dependence on various providers can make it challenging to keep up with and react to security warnings and alerts.
Businesses may find it challenging to manage cloud security due to the heterogeneous nature of cloud services, especially with the rapid rise in the usage of cloud services over the last 18 months.
As more companies are migrating their services to the cloud, more are implementing a multi-cloud approach. While this has advantages, it also has drawbacks, such as increasing notifications for various services and new cybersecurity concerns.
As a result, the CSNF is creating a standard information model to process alarms at scale while maintaining service security.
The Cloud Security Notification Framework project was created by ONUG, a collaborative group to discover and offer cross-industry solutions to corporate challenges such as cybersecurity and data protection.
Major cloud providers Microsoft, Google, and IBM, were already participants of the program, and Oracle Cloud has now joined them.
According to Oracle’s VP, Bala Chandran, multi-cloud is fast changing from an accidental to an intentional strategy for most businesses.
Along with Oracle, Sysdig, Wiz, Intuit, Adobe, Qualys, and F5 have joined the partnership to work with cloud users, including FedEx, Cigna, Raytheon Technologies, Fidelity, Goldman Sachs, and Kaiser, as well as cloud service providers like Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and IBM.
ONUG’s co-founder and co-chairman, Nick Lippis, says that significant industry players are joining the community. It leads them to make even considerable progress in developing an open-source standard to minimize the wall of anxiety that comes with rising security warnings in multi-cloud settings.
