Bitglass Report: Less than Half of Enterprises Have Visibility into External Sharing, DLP Policy Violations in the Cloud

Grazed from Bitglass

Bitglass, the Next-Gen CASB company, today announced the findings of its "Cloud Hard 2018: Security with a Vengeance" Report, which features survey insights from over 570 cybersecurity and IT professionals on their approach to cloud security. Visibility and compliance challenges continue to haunt organizations, with 44 percent of respondents claiming they have visibility into external sharing and DLP policy violations in their cloud application and environments. More shocking was the fact that 85 percent of organizations acknowledged they were unable to identify anomalous behavior across cloud applications. 

The cloud security market is growing in large part because traditional security infrastructure has failed. Where next-gen firewalls and built-in capabilities are insufficient for regulatory compliance, internal compliance, and cloud data protection, dedicated cloud security becomes critical. Specifically, 84 percent of respondents say traditional security solutions don't work or have limited functionality in the cloud.

"Cloud security is here to stay as is evident by the concerns and challenges survey respondents highlighted," said Bitglass CMO Rich Campagna. "Enterprise security teams are concerned about the next-generation of cloud threats that pose a risk to corporate data. There has already been immense progress in the past five years as security personnel come to the realization that legacy security tools and processes are not enough to secure their ever-changing ecosystem."

RightScale Inc., a demonstrated leader in enterprise universal cloud management, today announced the results of the RightScale 2018 State of the Cloud Survey. In its seventh year, the RightScale State of the Cloud Survey is the largest survey of corporate cloud users, including 997 technology professionals at large and small enterprises across a broad cross-section of industries.

The survey results are available in the RightScale 2018 State of the Cloud Report, which can be downloaded at www.rightscale.com/2018-cloud-report.

"The RightScale 2018 State of the Cloud Survey showed that enterprise cloud spending will grow rapidly over the next year, and yet 35 percent of cloud spend is wasted. As a result, optimizing clouds costs is the top initiative for cloud users in 2018," said Michael Crandell, CEO of RightScale. "Multi-cloud continues to be the preferred strategy for enterprises, with companies reporting that they use nearly five different clouds on average. With this multi-cloud approach, Azure is now nipping at AWS' heels and, in fact, is in a dead heat with AWS among enterprises that are just beginning their cloud adoption."
