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.

Businesses are beginning to see significant returns on investment (ROIs) as a result of measures to take their network security to the cloud. This comes naturally when breaking with the traditional on-premise, appliancebased model that depends on costly hardware, software, and manual patch updates to keep networks secure. With cloud security solutions, IT teams’ hands are freed to contribute more to their company’s business proposition than just maintaining the status quo. That’s because cloud security solutions are always patched, elastic, scalable and available at all times and locations in case of the inevitable IT emergency.
