Cloud security reaches tipping point

Fifty-six percent of developers actively developing in the Cloud now say they are very confident about the security of their company's current cloud software development process, a forty-four percent increase from 39% a year ago who said they were very confident -- a number that was up from 36% in spring of 2011.

Additionally, 38% were somewhat satisfied according to the latest Evans Data Cloud Development Survey (www.evansdata.com), a survey of over 450 software Cloud developers conducted in July 2013. A similar percent also expressed satisfaction with the security and sandboxing measures that Cloud providers offer to protect corporate data.

"We've made a profound step forward during the last year in the rate of confidence developers place in cloud offerings," said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data Corp. "While the total number this year and last year of developers who are satisfied has remained similar, those who are very satisfied has overtaken those who are only somewhat satisfied by a large extent. This is notable because security has been the chief obstacle to cloud implementations up to this date, and with that barrier eased, we can expect cloud development to really take off."

Data encryption, security intelligence, ACOOS (Access Control Oriented Ontology Systems), and SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) were the top security techniques being employed to address an organization's cloud security needs. Those writing enterprise-wide applications for internal corporate use were most likely to be very confident.

The Cloud Development Survey is conducted worldwide twice a year with developers actively developing in and/or deploying to the Cloud. The report presents over 250 pages of data on topics such as Cloud Configurations, Develop and Test in the Cloud, Cloud Security, Development Tools in the Cloud, Cloud and Mobility, Cloud and DevOps, Cloud and Governance, and more.
