According to the InformationWeek 2012 Strategic Security Survey, the biggest challenge for security teams is not about meeting compliance demands, and preventing breaches, but it’s managing complexity, risk management and handling security challenges.  This comes after an era in which a large percentage of organizations looked at security purely from a compliance-based approach–enacting minimal-requirements to comply with government and industry regulations.

A good proportion of companies have met the established security guidelines/specifications, but by failing to implement a risk-management approach they are still plagued with huge technical and/or administrative threats.  And now with mobile devices entering the workforce security threats have increased even further.  Not only may IT administrators be unaware that these devices are connected to their corporate network, but their misplacement or theft can lead to loss or compromise of proprietary corporate data.

With the increase in security threats and the trend towards managing complexity and risk management, the bar has been set high for cloud service providers.  But, as articulated in the CloudTimes article, “Social Media, Cloud, Smartphones Pose Threat to Security”–measures like data verification functionality, information management in the cloud, de-duplication and compression and secures backup can make a safe bet for cloud service providers to look to the companies built for the cloud for help.
