The demand to secure cloud services, already high due to digital transformation investments, grew even more following the big push to work from home as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic. So it’s no wonder cloud security is on the minds of so many organizations.
According to a new survey from the Cloud Security Alliance, and sponsored by Proofpoint, 83% of respondents cite security as a top priority for improvement. About 90% of those surveyed are already using or plan to use a cloud security broker, yet half of the respondents said that they don’t have the staff to take full advantage of cloud security products. Another 34% cited cloud security product complexity as an inhibitor to adoption.
