Faith in cloud adoption is soaring among IT professionals. According to one recent study, 95 percent of IT professionals claimed they are using the cloud (a 2 percent increase from 2015). 77 percent are using private cloud services, and 71 percent are now in hybrid cloud environments.
Why are so many organizations turning to the cloud? It’s because cloud technology offers a slew of valuable benefits such as flexibility, increased collaboration, low costs, disaster recovery, and much more.
Yet while the cloud has become increasingly popular due to its wide range of benefits, some still remain hesitant of the technology due to security concerns.
According to a study conducted by Crowd Research Partners, 53 percent of respondents said that general security concerns were a major barrier to cloud adoption, which is an increase from the 45 percent who reported so last year.
As a business processing outsourcing (BPO) company, chances are you are a part of the 53 percent of people who are concerned about security and may be dragging your feet about embracing the cloud because of it. After all, one security mishap could result in major damages—not to mention hefty fines—for your customers.
