The Cloud Services Trend Gives Rise to Security Concerns

More and more businesses are realizing the advantages of cloud services and making the shift; however this new trend is also giving rise to serious security concerns.

Added to this concern is the new BYOD (bring your own device) trend in many firms where employees are able to bring their own laptops and smartphones into company premises and connect to the wireless network. Both these new phenomenon are giving malicious hackers a new way to penetrate security apparatus’ and gain access to organizational networks.

Even though IT security techniques are becoming more sophisticated, these new trends mean that 2014 will bring with it more malicious attacks by hackers and – very likely – more security breaches. “In 2014, cyber espionage and state-sponsored threats will continue to make headlines, but the concerning underlying trend is that similar technology can and will be used against ordinary businesses,” comments Ovum principal analyst Andrew Kellet.

All of this means that in 2014, you should look out for some of the following security trends:

• Cloud services and mobility will bring about significant changes in how IT security and user protection are managed

• Security-as-a-Service will be high in demand by more and more organizations

Security experts predict that these new trends will require companies to not only take more defensive measures in order to protect themselves, but also to take proactive measures in order to counter potential security threats before they occur. However, most small or medium sized organizations do not have the financial resources or the technical skills in order to take such measures. Thus, such organizations will probably need to outsource their security requirements to external security experts.
