While many companies are beginning to migrate security tools to the cloud, a significant number have concerns, a survey by Exabeam reveals.

The survey highlights data privacy, unauthorized access, server outages and integration as key concerns.

The survey shows a mixed picture when it comes to firms migrating security tools to the cloud. While just over half of respondents (52 percent) began migrating to cloud-based security products during or before 2018, around a fifth (18 percent) waited until 2019, three percent started in 2020, 13 percent have not yet started and the remainder don’t know when they’ll migrate.

Of those that have started their migration, over half (58 percent) have migrated at least one quarter of their security tools to the cloud, while one third (33 percent) said more than 50 percent of their security tools are now cloud-based.

Typically, organizations migrate security tools to the cloud to minimize the resources and overhead associated with owning and maintaining on-premises equipment and software. This means security teams can avoid system sizing, maintenance, uptime management, and product upgrades.
