How Secure Is Your Cloud?
When a software vendor approaches your company, the general assumption is that the services offered are of a certain quality and possess the security qualifications to meet your business’s needs. However, in a recent report by Skyhigh Networks “researchers noted that of the 2,105 cloud services in use, only 9 percent provided enterprise-grade security capabilities, while the remaining 91 percent posed medium to high security risks to organizations.”
This report, based on a study with 1,000,000+ users, can understandably make even the most technologically savvy managers uneasy. Within the top 10 high-risk services were names commonly mentioned in the media as leading cloud providers, including Google Drive, Dropbox, and 4Shared. With these widespread products possessing significant vulnerabilities and maintaining persistent security faults in your IT infrastructure, what are the other options?
