By: Michael SubyResearch Vice President, Cybersecurity Products, Frank DicksonProgram Vice President, Cybersecurity Products, Robyn WesterveltResearch Director, Security & Trust


This IDC Perspective examines the approaches taken to secure 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.

"Protection of sensitive data stored and used in the cloud is a topmost concern of organizations, large and small," states Michael Suby, research VP in IDC's Worldwide Security and Trust group. Suby added, "Unfortunately, extending on-premise data security solutions to the cloud has not always been a strong fit, particularly with DLP. Examining suitability of cloud-specific DLP solutions should be a standard step before moving workloads to the cloud."
