The cloud has become a centerpiece of most organizations’ technology and digital strategy because of the plethora of benefits it promises, including cost savings, flexibility and convenience for remote workers. However, our recent research found that nearly half (48%) of organizations that store their sensitive data in the cloud would consider moving that data back on premises. Why? Organizations are willing to uncloud because they struggle with unexpected issues. Considerable security concerns and unexpectedly high costs top the list of pitfalls.
