Increased Trust In Cloud Providers
According to Syntax, 85 percent of users are confident in their cloud provider's ability to deliver a secure environment. This is particularly true among the small to medium business segment, where resources may not fully support comprehensive security technologies and practices. Without cloud providers, many of these companies take a best effort approach to IT security. Cloud providers, on the other hand, recognize that their business strategies are largely dependent upon the ability to keep customer data secure. The stakes are high, but the competition is even higher, given that cyber criminals are equally aware of the opportunity at hand.
