Survey Reveals CIOs' Level of Concern About Cloud Data Mobility & Security

2012 Enterprise Cloud Data Mobility & Security Survey Points Out Concerns, Data Risks Associated With the Public Cloud

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jul 31, 2012) - CloudStorageStrategy.com today announced the results of its Enterprise Cloud Data Mobility & Security Survey 2012 to help IT decision makers determine the data risks associated with the public cloud.

Key findings from the survey reveal that the biggest concerns of IT decision makers were loss of corporate data and control of data. This is a reflection of the known threats and risks of data leakage into the public cloud. Compliance and data availability were also mentioned as issues to a lesser extent. In addition, for the most part, survey respondents were interestingly not as concerned about data theft. The survey also highlights perceived causes of data leakage and obstacles to resolving this problem.

"This survey tells us that IT executives have a high level of concern as they face the real challenges associated with the consumerization of IT, including corporate data leaking onto public clouds through consumer-based tools," said Steve Lesem, the founder of CloudStorageStrategy.com and the CEO of Mezeo Software. "Without adequate policy protections and corporate-endorsed alternatives in place, mobile corporate users are doing what it takes to increase productivity, with or without input from IT."

Explains Lesem: "You don't want to stop progress -- but you can't risk control. The good news is you can deliver both. Mezeo offers a file sync and share solution that gives users the same type of functionality they use with consumer-based tools, allowing them to remain mobile and efficient, but allows IT to store the data behind the corporate firewall or with a trusted service provider on a private cloud."

"The key is control," says Lesem. "With Mezeo, IT is in control of data security, availability and reliability. And, when an employee leaves the company, the data they've been working on is not stored on a public cloud with indefinite access. Mezeo delivers an enterprise solution, purpose built for the world we live in today."
