This data is consistent with other studies such as the one released recently by Synergy research Group, which showed that AWS market share among cloud service providers reached a five-year peak in Q4 2014. Skyhigh, a cloud security company, stated that increased cloud usage brings with it increased security concerns. This is consistent with what the company reported earlier. Skyhigh stated that although the study showed a record number of cloud applications with enterprise-ready security capabilities it still presents risks associated with shadow IT. These risks include cloud services that don’t encrypt data at rest, external share of sensitive corporate data, and compromised credentials.
