New Approaches to Securely and Reliably Leverage Cloud Solutions

Gartner Research

Are you afraid to adopt cloud-based tools due to the data leaks in the news? Did you know many of the breaches are caused by mistakes made by the company, and not their cloud provider? In fact, Gartner predicts, “through 2022, at least 95% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.”

Focusing on the security policies and procedures of cloud providers not only deters you from taking advantage of cloud benefits, it prevents you from establishing your own security best practices. 

Research from Gartner, “Clouds Are Secure: Are You Using Them Securely?” recommends several steps companies need to take to securely and reliably leverage the benefits of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Read the report to learn why it’s up to you to: 

  • Determine what data can be placed into the cloud, and under what circumstances 
  • Implement and enforce policies on cloud security, responsibility and risk acceptance
  • Review what security comes from the cloud provider vs. your team 
  • Understand the unique characteristics and benefits for every service – SaaS, PaaS or IaaS
  • Deploy security management and monitoring
