INFOGRAPHIC: Cloud Security Adoption | Future of Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

Security is a real issue even though it is true that cloud computing is just as safe as traditional systems when it comes to apparent vulnerabilities and security holes. This is because of the nature of cloud computing, the public cloud, there are a lot more people with proximity access to the data. What I mean is that compared to an in-house system where there is virtually no connection to the outside internet, the whole world will now be potentially be able to just walk up to your door, so to speak, in public cloud systems.

My own experience in the marketplace illustrates that companies that are still hesitant to embrace cloud computing. Whether this hesitancy is motivated by fear of disruption to their current IT environment, limited time to take on a cloud migration, fear of job loss, security concerns or some other reason this article should give companies reasons to reexamine those issues.

The cloud is a tool that will help make your IT department more efficient and strategic.

It will be interesting to see how the storage market will develop once the cloud is an established part of every day computing. Dropbox and Box are no strangers to this industry and are arguably as entrenched as the larger more traditional players. That said there are plenty of other players vying to take a piece of this pie. Mega, 4Sync and SugarSync are 3 that quickly come to mind but there are others. The world of cloud computing post-NSA's spying scandal is going to be about security and those companies that offer the safest option are the ones that are most likely to succed (or perhaps even become targets of a taken over).
