Barracuda Networks and research firm Vanson Bourne polled 300 IT decision makers from organizations across the US on their use of public cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
Respondents included IT professionals across small, medium, and large-sized organizations, and their answers paint the following picture:
Respondents currently run 44 percent of their infrastructure in the public cloud, but expect this percentage to increase to 75.57% in five years
74 percent of respondents state that security concerns restrict their organizations migration to the public cloud
77 percent of respondents believe that public cloud providers are responsible for securing customer data in the cloud, and 68 percent of decision makers are under the impression that cloud providers are responsible for securing customer applications as well
Despite lack of clarity around the shared responsibility model, 30 percent of organizations have not added additional security layers to their public cloud depl
