Securing your move to – and operating in – the cloud
Migrating to the cloud is not only imperative for many businesses to retain their competitive edge – it’s also exciting. Cloud is opening up opportunities to work in faster and smarter ways than ever before and is enabling innovation to the benefit of businesses, consumers and society as a whole.
It’s no wonder that more and more businesses are making the move to the cloud. Recent figures indicate that by 2022 up to 60% of organisations will use an external service provider’s cloud managed service offering, with handful of pioneers saying they have already reached cloud-only status.

In this article we dig deeper into what the cloud security journey looks like and means in practice.
