With all the high-profile headlines this year about data breaches and corporate hacks, Business Managers have to realize that cloud computing, and in particular, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) have enviable security records and will generally outperform the small-to-mid-sized IT department for security, and reliability.
Gartner's Is the Cloud Secure" article from 2017 predicts that over the next three years,
"public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) workloads will suffer at least 60% fewer security incidents than those in traditional data centers"
When you think about it, this should be great news for IT managers and business leaders. They still have due diligence responsibilities when selecting and managing their cloud vendors but now they can focus on adding value and building capability for their core business rather than infrastructure management.
