Most businesses around the world, small and large, use multiple cloud services to handle business-critical data. Though cloud services offer improved efficiency, reduced costs, greater accessibility and flexibility, they also increase security risk. Cloud leaders focus on measures to reduce data breaches, maintain confidentiality, and preserve integrity, authenticity and completeness. Other areas of concern are risk factors associated with virtual machines, vulnerabilities from shared resources, and issues with encryption.

Recent hacking attacks on Dropbox, Google’s DNS, LinkedIn, etc. are only indications of larger threats to cloud services and data security. According to McAfee® Labs 2014 Threats Predictions report, deployment of cloud-based corporate applications will create new attack surfaces that will be exploited by cybercriminals.
