Thanks to growing demand for remote working and public cloud services, on-premises infrastructure is shifting from asset to liability. But moving to the cloud comes at a cost: increasing every organisation’s attack surface.

The numerous and well-publicised breaches of data storage services have raised cloud security awareness, but cyber criminals work diligently to stay one step ahead.

To understand the reality behind the headlines, Sophos commissioned an independent survey of 3 251 IT managers across 26 countries who are using the public cloud. The findings provide brand new insights into the concerns for security teams that host data and workloads in the public cloud; how attackers are changing the rules to find new ways into environments; and how to find the visibility you need – and perhaps the security gaps you never knew you had.
