The use of the cloud drives multiple business benefits, including decreased time to market, increased security, and business growth. Widespread recognition of these benefits had led to broad cloud adoption. In fact, according to Check Point’s Annual State of the Cloud Report for 2020, 90% of those surveyed said they are using at least one cloud service in their organization.
While public cloud providers dedicate extensive efforts to security, customers retain responsibility for how they use those services, including the data that is stored in them, and how it is shared and accessed. There are many different ways to protect your data in the cloud, and organizations are failing to do the vast majority of them. Gartner research has found that, through 2022, at least 95 percent of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.
