This IDC Perspective examines the approaches taken to secure workloads in the cloud. Looking to gain insight into how security professionals were approaching security in platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) environments, IDC surveyed cloud security decision makers."Protection of sensitive data stored and used in the cloud is a topmost concern of organizations, large and small," states Michael Suby, research VP in IDC's Worldwide Security and Trust group. Suby added, "Unfortunately, extending on-premise data security solutions to the cloud has not always been a strong fit, particularly with DLP.
