Multicloud Businesses Face Higher Breach Risk

1 minute read
More than half of firms running multicloud environments have been hit with a data breach in the past year, compared with 24% of hybrid cloud organizations and 24% of single-cloud users.

To gain a better understanding of how the public and private sectors are engaging with the $325 billion cloud market, researchers with Nominet polled 274 CISOs, CTOs, CIOs, and other professionals responsible for cybersecurity in large organizations across the US and UK. While 61% believe the risk of a breach is the same or lower in the cloud compared with on-prem environments, it seems there is a link between the number of clouds used and risk of attack.

The majority (71%) of respondents use software-as-a-service (SaaS) and 60% use infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). Fewer have moved to platform-as-a-service (PaaS) or business-process-as-a-service (BPaaS). Nearly half (48%) report their organizations uses a multicloud approach, and 24% use hybrid cloud. Only 29% of respondents use cloud services from one provider. Google Cloud was the most popular (56%), followed by IBM (49%), Oracle (44%), Microsoft Azure (36%), and AWS (32%).
