About 40 percent of companies still think budget is a constraint while selecting a cloud vendor for migration. The majority of companies surveyed (60 percent) do not think budget is holding them back from cloud migration. Ease of ensuring patching, certification, and security compliance is the second most prominent requirement. These are some of the findings of a survey and research report published by CISO MAG and included in the August 2019 issue, titled ‘Cloud Security Power List’. The issue is available as a free download.
The research report includes findings on Cloud Migration Trends and strategies adopted by companies for cloud migration vendor selection. It also delves into various security challenges and threat vectors faced by companies.
