As more and more companies are making a quick approach towards public cloud, security has become a prime concern to them. However, the confidence is growing says a survey conducted by Barracuda Networks after it took responses from over 850 security professionals.
Barracuda Survey on Cloud Security states that 44% of its respondents were confident that their cloud security platforms were secure enough to block or thwart any cyber intrusions. While 33% of them felt that their on-premise data centers were more secure than public cloud platforms as cloud adoption needs hiring skilled labor which might prove burdensome for businesses who are struggling to make profits in this competitive driven age.
Barracuda discovered that 47% of respondents were facing a shortage of Cybersecurity skills and so delayed or dropped the plan of adopting cloud platforms for their on-premise workloads.
Another 42% felt that cloud environments were complex and so it was tough to gain visibility into them.
Now to those firms which are vying to make a mark in the cloud world, end-users need to have an awareness training module when it comes to compliance, visibility, and cloud security. Also, they need to understand the fact that the supply of skilled staff is not as per the demand and in this situation building trust among the users is not that easy.
