Businesses that thought moving to cloud computing would greatly decrease their security risks may want to take a look at the findings in this report.
According to new research from Ernst & Young, an alarming 72% of employers have seen an increasing level of risk because of external threats in the last year.
What’s more, the report found that no single technology or process can completely stop advanced and persistent security threats. Plus, traditional security tactics are turning out to be ineffective against recent security threats.
The study also found that 61% of employers are either currently using cloud computing — or are planning to use it within the next year.
However, more than half of those respondents also said they’ve done virtually nothing to decrease the new and increased risks related to cloud computing.
