Cloud Security Survey Peer Research Summary

  1. 1. Insights intoWhat’s Holding Back the Cloud? Intel’s IT Manager Survey
  2. 2. IT Managers Speak Out800 IT Professionals: 200 each in China, Germany, U.K., and U.S. We wanted to find out: • What’s holding back the cloud? • What would help build greater confidence in cloud security? • How do these issues differ in China, Europe, and the United States? Note: See our methodology in the full research report at intel.com/cloudreport.2 INTEL IT CENTER | Peer Research
  3. 3. Top Five Findings 1 Private clouds: Lack of control is the top issue. 2 Public clouds: Inability to measure security services of providers is the leading concern. 3 Meeting compliance requirements keeps regulated workloads out of the cloud. 4 Industry focus in several areas would build IT professional confidence in cloud security. 5 Two additional capabilities would increase cloud security and safety.3 INTEL IT CENTER | Peer Research
  4. 4. Anxiety about Cloud Security Cloud computing can open Number of Breaches: Public Cloud the door to an increased Compared to Traditional IT Infratructure number of security breaches. Significantly higher 16% 28% of those surveyed have experienced a public cloud– related security breach. Somewhat higher 49% About the same 18% 65% of those with public cloud security breaches report a greater number of breaches than Somewhat lower 14% with traditional IT infrastructure. Significantly lower 4% 30% of the security threats n=225 faced represent internal threats. U.S. (n=200) U.K. (n=200)4 INTEL IT CENTER | Peer Research
  5. 5. Private Clouds: Lack of Control Worldwide, the top concerns center on lack of control. Private 63% worry about a lack of controls to limit access to data and services. • Access controls • Visibility into 61% have no visibility into abstracted resources abstracted resources. • Adequate firewalling • Virtual machine trust levels 60% are concerned about inadequate firewalling.5 INTEL IT CENTER | Peer Research
  6. 6. Public Clouds: Security Service Audits Worldwide, the top concerns center on lack of control. PUBLIC 57% are concerned about the inability to measure security services. • Ability to measure and Major worry in Germany: audit security services the lack of physical and • Control over data geographical boundary controls. and boundaries • Confidence in provider’s security Major worry in China: the ability to attest to the integrity of hosting platforms.6 INTEL IT CENTER | Peer Research
  7. 7. Hypervisor Vulnerabilities Hypervisors are a critical piece of virtualized cloud infrastructure. 87% report worry that vulnerabilities put the entire cloud at risk. 87%7 INTEL IT CENTER | Peer Research
  8. 8. Compliance Limits Cloud Use Of those that must comply with data regulations, 57% are not putting compliance- regulated workloads in the cloud. There is widespread concern about: • Audit and reporting requirements • Legal responsibilities of public cloud providers • Inability to meet regulatory demands In China, 96% are required to comply with data regulations where the level of concern is highest. 43% are moving some regulated data and workloads to the cloud, even without automated tracking.8 INTEL IT CENTER | Peer Research
  9. 9. Four Things IT Pros Want for the Cloud IT professionals want the power to: Set and enforce consistent security policies 1 across both public and private clouds. ON Create data boundaries to control where 2 certain workloads are run. ON 3 Determine that public cloud infrastructure ON is high-integrity and malware free. Measure and compare security ON 4 levels across cloud providers. And 98% want a service that lets them measure the security posture of their cloud service provider. 98%9 INTEL IT CENTER | Peer Research
  10. 10. Two More Findings Virtually every IT professional wants: A way to measure their regulatory compliance. 1 They need to know whether they’re meeting their compliance requirements. A way to access or disable data stored on client devices. 2 The rise of HTML5 lets users work with corporate data even if they’re not connected to a cloud service.10 INTEL IT CENTER | Peer Research
