PII concerns about unprotected in the cloud vs on prem

Are you finding customers are more concerned about PII unprotected in the cloud vs on prem ?

  • This is a good question and we certainly see more interest in protecting PII data in the cloud vs on prem as the cloud creates additional risks when storing PII data as is evident from some of the breaches that have been reported - particularly with data being stored in the cloud.

    Having said that we also see that once people consider this information as part of their Cloud migration strategy they quickly expand this to the on prem side as well seeing the major benefit an approach has that protects the data by default. Thus the cloud migration becomes far easier as well.
