Cloud Computing Security

The Challenges of Cloud Computing Security

As more enterprises adopt a cloud-first strategy for applications and infrastructure, cloud computing security has risen to the forefront of IT priorities.

Cloud computing security is not the hurdle it once was in terms of adoption of cloud technology. Where cloud security concerns once prohibited companies from moving valuable assets to the cloud, today enterprises are rushing to take advantage of the speed, scalability and cost savings that the cloud offers.

Despite the acceptance that the cloud has gained among enterprises in every industry, cloud computing security continues to be a challenge for IT teams. In part, this is due to the rapid pace at which users and organizations are adopting everything from cloud storage and collaboration tools to office suites and enterprise applications. A recent study by NetSkope suggested that enterprises are using more than 900 cloud applications on average, while more than 90% of those applications are considered "not enterprise ready".

To improve cloud computing security, enterprises must develop a more mature strategy for managing cloud technology. That's where Optiv can help.
