Cloud adoption booming in the UK despite cyber-security concerns

Cloud adoption booming in the UK despite cyber-security concerns

80% of businesses in the UK are in favour of cloud adoption despite asking cloud service providers to do more to build trust.

While 33% of UK organisations are experienced in the Cloud, 37% of them have recently launched Cloud computing projects for the first time.

Last year, a survey of CIOs from the UK and the United States revealed that 88% of them were not in favour of cloud adoption because of the long-term security risks it created. A majority of them believed that the cloud was reducing their organisations’ control over IT as they did not apply the same comprehensive ITSM processes in the cloud as they did for their in-house IT services.
