The last 10 years have witnessed the strong emergence of computer hackers attacking businesses of varying sizes in nearly every industry. Ransomware has become a recurring theme in the last couple of years, with organizations and users experiencing demands for money in return for access to their files and data.”

Cloud Security’ Emerging as Top Industry Challenge and Business Driver

As cloud computing has developed into a highly-demanding service and utility, those operating in and around the industry have sought to take advantage of the cloud’s security while also maintaining safety standards. As cloud computing grows in popularity, the report explains, tens of thousands of companies have simply rebranded their non-cloud services as cloud computing, which is serving to greatly increase network complexity. While the cloud may have have been hype just a few decades ago, today it is a required small business driver, and each company needs a custom action plan to inspect system integrity.
