Overview

Companies lack the in-house expertise required to analyze threats and keep up with day-to-day security operations. And so, despite the best intentions, many security strategies fall short of their goals and leave companies vulnerable just as threats become more sophisticated and targeted.
At the same time, IT departments are viewing cloudbased services as a better way to deliver the services business users need. In a recent survey conducted by IDG Research Services, investing in cloud services ranks as the second priority (55%) for respondents in 2015, topped only by the goal of improving data protection and security (73%). Yet only one-third of respondents are considering using cloud to achieve better data protection and security. These survey results demonstrate that an important opportunity is being overlooked.
