Netwrix 2015 Cloud Security Survey reveals unauthorized access and account hijacking are the leading security risks associated with the cloud
Irvine, CA, December 1, 2015
Netwrix Corporation, a provider of IT auditing software that delivers complete visibility into IT infrastructure changes and data access, today released the results of its global 2015 Cloud Security Survey that show that when it comes to migrating to the cloud, 65% of companies are concerned with security and 40% are concerned with their loss of physical control over data in the cloud.
While security is gaining increasing attention from cloud technology and service providers, the lack of visibility into sensitive data stored externally increases security risks and raises fears that are still holding back wider cloud adoption. Netwrix surveyed more than 600 IT professionals worldwide, who represent technology, manufacturing, government, healthcare, finance, education and other industries, to answer questions about cloud security, expectations from cloud providers and measures being taken to ensure data security.
Other key survey findings show that:
"We wanted to find out the exact reasons that prevent companies from cloud adoption and taking advantage of all the benefits it offers," said Alex Vovk, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix. "The survey revealed the interesting fact that even though the cloud is not a new technology, the cloud market has a good potential to grow further. Advanced security solutions and true visibility into what is going on across the cloud infrastructure will help companies minimize security risks, take back control over business-critical assets and accelerate cloud adoption."
