Cloud Security Trends on the Rise: What They Mean for Your Business in 2022

Cloud Security Trends Business Implications 2022

As the world of technology evolves, so do cloud-based computing systems and cloud security trends. There was once a time when businesses scoffed at the thought of storing company information on something they couldn’t physically see or touch, but what about now?  

The unbelievable expansion and widespread availability of cloud solutions have pushed virtually every modern business to adopt some form of cloud computing service. This increase in cloud usage came with its own set of challenges: access management, visibility and protection. How can a business efficiently manage the use of multiple cloud-based platforms and protect company data from hackers and various forms of cyber attack? Interest in cloud security trends is climbing as businesses of all sizes seek to manage complex IT systems involving cloud-based services and protect their networks, applications and data.

What is cloud security (and why is it trending)?

Cloud security protects cloud-based data, applications and virtualized IP or network infrastructure from being vulnerable to cyber attacks and cyber threats. The process of storing data has shifted from on-premise solutions to the cloud at a rapid pace. Gone are the days where company information was stored in a single location. Now you simply need an internet connection to access company files. A new way to manage and protect data has increasingly become a necessity, thereby causing cloud security trends to move to the forefront.

What do cloud security trends mean for my business now?

As cloud security trends increase, so does the level of cybersecurity for businesses. The cloud cybersecurity market is growing rapidly. In 2017, the cloud security market was valued at less than $5 billion. In 2022, that number is expected to fall just shy of $13 billion, according to a trending MarketWatch report.  Cloud-based services are operated and accessed remotely, therefore companies must track who accesses what information, manage user identities and privileges and continuously monitor networks to protect against suspicious activity. Cloud security trends rise as the need for cloud computing increases among businesses.
