In today’s data world, data breaches are commonplace. Not a day goes by without a headline about a massive data breach. Just to put this into perspective, there have been more than 14 billion records lost since 2013. The leaks come from both insiders and outsiders – whether they are accidental leaks or malicious activities like phishing and malware.
All enterprises are in the cloud and so is their sensitive data. According to a recent McAfee survey – 97% of organizations use cloud services (public, private or hybrid) and 83% store sensitive data in the cloud. For enterprises where “data is the new oil”, data leaks can be devastating, costly and a nightmare to your reputation. IT leaders are increasing budget (Increase to 37%) and slowing the adoption to the cloud (40% of the IT leaders in the same survey) to mitigate the risks. Even with these mitigations, 1 in 4 enterprises has experienced data theft from their cloud.
