Data Security in PaaS and IaaS: Insights from IDC's Cloud Survey North America
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."
