An Organization's IaaS/PaaS Workload Security Evolution: Insights from IDC's Cloud Survey North America
By: Frank DicksonResearch Vice President, Security Products, Sean Pike
This IDC Perspective examines the approaches taken to securing workloads in the cloud. Looking to gain insight into how security professionals were approaching security in platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) environments, IDC surveyed cloud security decision makers.
"Protecting IaaS workloads is not a 'one size fits all' proposition," says Frank Dickson, research director for IDC's Worldwide Security Products and Services group. "Variations exist among sizes of business and life span in the cloud that should be considered in go-to-market strategies."
