The cloud is critical for enterprise growth, particularly with the move to the mobile workforce and working from home. Yet the security and management challenges are becoming barriers to efficiency and productivity. The movement of infrastructure, data and applications to the cloud is outpacing security, which means that you could be leaving valuable assets exposed.

The survey will determine how consistent your policy is, across on-premise and on cloud, and investigate how important continuousa compliance is to your enterprise.

In this stage of the survey we look at the type of information you store in the cloud and the possibility of any unsanctioned apps being used across your company. We will ask how you address the causes of cloud misconfigurations, how you protect data in the cloud and what steps you are taking to comply with current and upcoming legislation.
Finally, we consider how regularly you carry out cloud security assessments and whether your security team is involved in creating and implementing your cloud governance policy framework.
Following the survey, you will be given a score based on industry best practices. The scoring classifies organisations into five maturity levels:
By focusing on the three key areas – Plan, Check and Do – you can act on the findings from the survey to optimise security and protect the cloud, enabling efficient management of mission-critical data and apps.
Your report will contain a number of specific recommendations designed to help your enterprise get proactive, get control and get ahead.
