Remember the old days when IT environments were on-premise? Machines were on-premise, data was stored in house, users had a single domain-joined account, and even apps were hosted on-premises. Ever since companies have started to embrace the cloud, the IT landscape is becoming difficult to protect and administer. Users have more than a single identity (hybrid identities), workload and company data are now scattered between on-premise and public cloud deployments. This hybrid approach may be a 'transitional state' before shifting fully to the cloud, but for most companies, it is just a business model that makes logical sense. Either ways, hybrid IT will continue to be the norm for years to come, and we must adopt a systematic administration strategy.
