According to Gartner, by year-end 2016, more than 50 percent of Global 1000 companies will have stored customer-sensitive data in the public cloud. Many enterprises are reaping great benefits from cloud computing, primarily in added business agility and cost savings.
“Enterprises should ensure that potential cloud service providers are trustworthy in areas of security, privacy and operational characteristics. Enterprises should perform due diligence on potential cloud service providers through the use of emerging cloud standards, certifications, cloud services brokers, questionnaires and interviews, and by generally doing your homework,” said Gene Phifer, vice president distinguished analyst, Gartner.
