Despite the meteoric rise of cloud based applications and services, as well as its subsequent adoption by a significant number of enterprises, security still remains a major concern for many organizations. The elephant in the room is the misconception that the cloud is less secure than on-premise capabilities. Gartner eloquently describes this as “more of a trust issue than based on any reasonable analysis of actual security capabilities”.
A recent global study by BT revealed that 76% of large organizations cited security as their main concern for using cloud-based services. 49% admitted being “ very” or “extremely anxious” about the security complications of these services. However according to Gartner, the reality is “most breaches continue to involve on-premises data center environments”.
