Gartner states through 2020, public IaaS workloads will suffer at least 60 percent fewer security incidents than workloads in traditional data centers. When I pointed this out several years ago, many scoffed at the claim.
Both the hyperscalers and third-party security providers are spending about 70 to 80 percent of their R&D budgets on supporting public clouds. It should be no surprise that the quality and functionality of most cloud security technologies will be superior to traditional on-premises systems.
What do we have coming down the line in terms of cloud security? Here is what I think the landscape will look like in three years, maybe sooner.
