Gartner Releases the Hype Cycle for Cloud Security in 2017

Egham, U.K., September 7, 2017 — Rapid growth in cloud adoption is driving increased interest in securing data, applications and workloads that now exist in a cloud computing environment. The Gartner, Inc. Hype Cycle for Cloud Security helps security professionals understand which technologies are ready for mainstream use, and which are still years away from productive deployments for most organisations.

“Security continues to be the most commonly cited reason for avoiding the use of public cloud,” said Jay Heiser, research vice president at Gartner. “Yet paradoxically, the organisations already using the public cloud consider security to be one of the primary benefits.”

The attack resistance of the majority of cloud service providers has not proven to be a major weakness so far, but customers of these services may not know how to use them securely. “The Hype Cycle can help cybersecurity professionals identify the most important new mechanisms to help their organisations make controlled, compliant and economical use of the public cloud,” added Mr Heiser.
