Cyber Security and the Cloud

Historically, cloud technologies have been viewed as less than on-premise systems as they require a relinquishment of control that many businesses aren’t comfortable with. However, with the vast majority of companies now using cloud security solutions, public attitude seems to have shifted. Cloud computing is fast becoming the front-runner when it comes to the delivery of enterprise infrastructure, software and platforms.

Nominet polled the views of nearly 300 CISOs, CIOs, CTOs and other security professionals in the UK and US in order to explore:

  • The factors contributing to the shift towards cloud technologies
  • The extent to which cloud concerns have been overcome
  • The role they see cloud taking in the security solutions of the future

Of the security professionals we polled, our research shows that:


believe the risk of a security breach is the same or lower in cloud environments compared to on-premise


report that their business is adopting cloud-based security solutions
