Cloud Expo Survey: 82% Say Less Than Half Their Infrastructure Has Migrated to the Cloud
Only 21% Migrating High Impact Data to the Cloud
San Francisco, CA—November 14, 2012— nCircle, the leader in information risk and security performance management solutions, today announced the results of a survey of 127 attendees of the Cloud Expo West conference in Santa Clara, California.
Survey findings include:
- 51% of respondents said they outsource "less than a third" of their infrastructure to the cloud, 31% said they outsource "one-third to one-half" to the cloud
- Only 18% of respondent said they outsource "two-thirds or more" of their infrastructure to the cloud
- 37% said they outsource "moderate impact" data to the cloud
- 42% said they outsource "low impact" data to the cloud
- 21% said they outsource "high impact" data to the cloud
"In spite of the cost efficiencies, the cloud continues to be a small part of most organizations' infrastructure," said Lamar Bailey, director of security research and development for nCircle. "Cloud infrastructure creates a whole new set of security questions that aren't easily answered, and many IT security tools don't adapt well to the cloud, making it difficult for users to migrate quickly."
