Forrester’s study yielded three key findings:
› Developers are picking their own cloud tools. Our survey shows that at 64% of organizations using public cloud, developers or non-IT professionals are responsible for selecting their public cloud vendors.
› Security is not heavily involved in crafting security policies for public cloud. Only 43% of organizations reported that their IT security team was heavily involved in crafting security policies for the public cloud.
› Cloud managers should create workload-specific security policies and automate security within the provisioning process. Cloud managers need to ensure that the proper level of security is applied to different workloads, without sacrificing the time-to-value that developers have migrated to the cloud for in the first place.
