Security Solutions: Security in the Cloud

IDC's Security Solutions: Security in the Cloud analyzes security solutions for customers moving datacenter and other applications to the cloud. While security was often cited as the leading obstacle to cloud implementations, increasingly some customers see cloud as more secure, cost effective, and customer responsive than in-house capabilities. Consistent with this trend, enterprises are moving quickly to use a mix of private, hybrid, and public cloud-based datacenters to address Digital Transformation needs. Customers want security solutions that extend across all cloud and datacenter types, providing a foundation for private and public clouds with a common basis in consolidated policy, monitoring, and control of resources. This report series analyzes these customers' issues and highlights solutions.
