Survey Report: Evolving Attitudes Toward Cloud Security
In a recent global survey conducted on behalf of Google Cloud in association with MIT SMR Custom Studio, respondents were asked: over the last two years, how has your overall confidence in the security of cloud applications and infrastructure changed?
The response was encouraging. 74% of respondents have become more confident in cloud security.
The age of unthinking fears about cloud security is over. Not only is cloud adoption rising steadily across geographies, industries and job functions, but confidence in cloud security is rising as well — to the point where increased security is a major reason enterprises opt for cloud solutions.
This report examines the growing confidence in cloud security, how companies are basing their hosting decisions on the flexibility and integration offered by the cloud, and their plans to use the cloud for future workloads such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
