The Cloud is Only as Secure as its Provider

White Paper Published By: QTS

One of ITís biggest balancing acts is to make data transactions easily available to authorized users while preventing all others from accessing its data assets. With high-profile data security breaches splashed across headlines nearly every day, CIOs are understandably worried about protecting their data. And for IT leaders who are considering moving their business to the cloud it is critical to ensure the provider they select has undertaken full and robust measures for physical and logical security.

Enterprise security is at the top of IT leadersí list of worries. Three-quarters of surveyed CIOs view cyber threats as having the second potentially most severe impact on their organizations, next to a global recession, according to the 2014 State of the CIO report (see Figure 1). Research has shown that one of the biggest concerns about operating in the cloud is security. The public cloud in particular is a source of worry for CIOs, but private and hybrid cloud services carry security concerns, too. While moving to the cloud carries a wide variety of benefits, such as enabling business agility, security remains a persistent worry.
