The Cloud Security Challenge
The cloud is having a measurable impact on business. According to a Vanson Bourne study, companies taking advantage of cloud services experienced a 15% reduction in IT spending, a 21% reduction in time to market, and an 18% increase in employee productivity. However, sensitive data in the cloud is now a target for cyber criminals, and cloud services can be used in a cyberattack as a vector to exfiltrate data. That’s why, according to Gartner, 25% of companies will deploy a cloud security software solution by 2016. That’s up from 1% who had such a solution in 2012. There are two sides to the cloud security challenge: 1) securing employee usage of cloud services they bring into the workplace and 2) securing the usage of cloud services that are sanctioned by the company.
When employees bring cloud services to work without the knowledge of the IT department, they create a parallel technology stack unknown to the company called “shadow IT”. As a result, IT teams often underestimate the scope of cloud usage by a factor of ten, and cannot enforce corporate security policies or identify and respond to security incidents. On the other side of the cloud dilemma, IT organizations require additional controls to extend corporate security policies to sanctioned cloud services procured by IT. Specifically, they need to protect data from breaches and blind subpoenas, comply with regulatory requirements, enforce governance policies, and detect compromised accounts and insider threats.
