Top 5 Cloud Security Myths: Debunked
Whether you’re a fan of digital transformation or not, there’s no denying that the shift to the cloud is engulfing enterprise IT. According to Gartner, over the next five years, over $1 trillion in compounded IT spending will be directly or indirectly impacted by the cloud shift, making cloud security one of the most disruptive forces of IT spending since the early days of the digital age.
Despite industry recognition that the future of IT lies in the cloud, many businesses remain wary of the security implications of this shift. One BT Group1 survey found that 49% of IT decision-makers are ‘very or extremely anxious’ about the implications of cloud security, and that overall, 76% of respondents’ main concern with cloud solutions was their security. Those numbers do not bode well for the future of cloud security solutions, but there is good indication that cloud skeptics are losing steam.
