Gartner Research Reprints – Hype Cycle for Cloud Security

Complimentary Download - Gartner report: Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2020

According to Gartner, "this Hype Cycle encompasses innovations and technologies that improve the security, governance and reliability of public and private cloud computing. Security continues to be a commonly cited reason for avoiding use of the public cloud, but most enterprises are approaching the consensus that the public cloud can be made secure enough for most use cases. Cloud service providers (CSPs) rarely suffer security failures that directly affect their customers; but customers of these services often don’t know how to use them securely (which, at times, can be challenging to accomplish), or lack the skills and tools to verify secure use. The multiple security tools and innovations in this Hype Cycle strongly suggest organizations using the cloud are not always finding CSP-provided security mechanisms to be adequate, especially for multicloud deployments."
