NEW YORK, Dec. 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
The cloud's promise of doing more with less has enterprises' attention, but security concerns hold them back from embracing the cloud fully. Indeed, from audit necessities to network security needs, enterprise security requirements and cloud provider capabilities are currently mismatched. In fact, our June 2010 Anywhere Enterprise: 2010 U.S. Cloud Computing FastView Survey finds security concerns and closely related compliance unease are the top two barriers to cloud adoption (see Exhibit 1).
Thoroughly addressing enterprise cloud security concerns matters because doing so unlocks a substantial market opportunity. In two years, 39 percent of enterprises plan to shift at least one-third of their IT budget to cloud services, according to our FastView survey. Frankly, this is an enormous shift in resources. At this magnitude, enterprises will have to move beyond low-hanging fruit and begin migrating more complex and sensitive applications. As such, the security stakes will be high. The bottom line is that a shift of this magnitude simply won't happen unless security requirements are met. Cloud providers will have their hands full meeting these expectations at the same time they are going through the growing pains associated with their underlying cloud infrastructure rollout.
