1 Cloud Security Concerns and the Perceived Effectiveness of Traditional Security Solutions in a Cloud Environment Presented by: IDG Research Company: CloudPassage June 2015

2 METHODOLOGY & RESEARCH OBJECTIVES Sample Method Field Work This survey was fielded from June 2, 2015 to June 12, 2015 Collection Number of Questions Online Questionnaire 10 (excluding screeners and demographics) Total Respondents Survey Goals 100 qualified completes Audience To complete this survey, respondents were required to hold a title of IT Director or above at a company with 1,000 or more employees. Respondents were also required to have involvement with or knowledge of their organization s security as well as cloud initiatives and needs. The purpose of this survey is better understand cloud security concerns, particularly those related to customer data residing in the public cloud. We seek to understand perceptions of traditional security solutions as far as their effectiveness in a cloud environment. The survey also explores cloud deployment plans and adoption drivers. 2

3 RESPONDENT PROFILE Total Respondents Organization Size 10,000+ employees 56% 100 1,000 9,999 employees 44% Job Title Breakdown Top Represented Industries CIO/CTO 29% Manufacturing, Production, Distribution Healthcare, Medical (hospitals, medical providers) 12% 20% CSO/CISO 10% Computer related products or services Chief Architect 4% Financial services (banking, accounting, tax, etc.) Retail, Wholesale 10% Executive VP/Senior VP/VP of IT or IT Security 13% Insurance 7% Executive Director/Managing Director/ Director of IT or IT Security 45% Business services, Consulting Education 6% 6% 3

4 RESPONDENT PROFILE (cont.) Involvement with or knowledge of your organization s security initiatives and needs Involvement with or knowledge of your organization s cloud initiatives and needs Significant Moderate 29% 24% 71% 76% S3. How would you describe your involvement with or knowledge of your organization s security initiatives and needs? S4. How would you describe your involvement with or knowledge of your organization s cloud initiatives and needs? Base: 100 qualified respondents 4

5 KEY FINDINGS Respondents expect that IT services will increasingly be deployed in the cloud over the next 18 months (from 43% of IT services, on average, to 58%), with the most growth anticipated in public cloud deployments (from 12% to 20%). Agility and cost efficiency are the top drivers for cloud adoption at respondents organizations. Four in ten respondents (45%) report that the transition to cloud computing has made maintaining visibility into security and vulnerability more difficult. In fact, security concerns (cited by 66%) top the list of barriers impeding or stalling cloud infrastructure deployments. More than one third (37%) are concerned about the ability to meet compliance requirements. Respondents anticipate that 50% of customer data will reside in the cloud 18 months from now (nearly 20% in a public cloud). Half of all respondents (50%) are very concerned about the security of customer data residing in the public cloud, while another third (34%) are at least somewhat concerned. There are several factors contributing to concerns about the security of customer data that resides in the public cloud. Data ownership, location of data, and shared technology/multi-tenancy are cited by more than half of the respondents. The majority (80%) agree to some extent that conventional network (perimeter) security solutions don t work well in cloud environments, and three-quarters (76%) agree their organizations lack visibility into attacks when applying traditional security in cloud infrastructure environments. Microsoft Azure is the cloud IaaS solution most often running in production today, followed by VMware vcloud Air and AWS. These are also the solutions that respondents organizations are most often testing and investigating. 5
