Nearly half (47%) of security personnel ‘simply trust’ that their cloud providers will meet security agreements without demanding
any verification, claims new research from enterprise cloud hosting provider iland.
A survey by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) reveals that companies now consider cloud security to be superior to on-premises security and often expose themselves to risk by relying too heavily on technology.
David Monahan, EMA research director, security and risk management, said: “Companies can no longer combat security threats simply by throwing technology at perceived vulnerabilities. Though teams are using more security tools in the cloud than on-premises, they still face major risks as they struggle with staffig and skills shortages that make it extremely diffiult to adequately evaluate, integrate and manage solutions.”
