Security's Cloud Revolution Is Upon Us

Understanding Information Security Amid Major Cloud Disruption

August 2, 2013


Why Read This Report

A perceived lack of security has been one of the more prominent reasons organizations cite for not adopting cloud services. However, this attitude is changing rapidly as cloud service providers (CSPs) begin to offer comprehensive security capabilities. In 2010, Forrester predicted highly secure and trusted cloud services within five years, during which time the cloud security market would grow into a $1.5 billion market. We understated this number, to say the least. Secure cloud is here now, and these services are disrupting the way information security officers address their firms' security needs. This report explains how CSPs are bundling security services, how security vendors are retooling their premises-based offerings to be cloud based, and how CISOs are responding to these trends. Security and risk pros must accept that cloud is here to stay and develop strategies to deal with this new reality.
