Research: Cloud Security Improving But IT Leadership Lacking
March 05 2013, 08:40 AM
Today we announced the results of the "Security of Cloud Computing Users 2013" research study commissioned by CA Technologies and conducted by the Ponemon Institute.
The study found that companies have improved their practices around cloud computing security over the past two years, but much more needs to be done before IT leaders will put their full confidence in the cloud as a secure platform.
In our view, the three main takeaways include:
- Cloud confidence and best practices are improving, but further progress must be made.
- Responsibility for cloud security is mixed, with much weight put on end users and IT security getting bypassed.
- Users prefer hybrid identity and access management (IAM) security solutions.
Frankly, there's an incredibly rich amount of insight in the study -- far too much to cover in a simple blog post. We encourage you to dive into the full report, which is now available.
But if you're pressed for time, we've also produced an infographic that highlights the main takeaways we think every business and IT organization should consider when it comes to minding their cloud. You can download the infographic here.
