SECURITY AND THE CLOUD
Global Banking & Finance Review (http://www.globalbankingandfinance.com )
Interview with Tom Salkield, NTT Com Security discusses recent research conducted by WideAngle. They surveyed 700 companies worldwide about their state of cloud adoption and defined five cloud ‘personas’ – from ‘controller’ to ’embracer’ – depending on the companies’ attitudes to the cloud. The report highlights how a company’s choice of cloud as a delivery mechanism changes when different factors, including cost and security, are taken into consideration — potentially delaying or driving deployment.
