Written by David Marshall

In its latest forecast for the worldwide public cloud services market, analyst firm Gartner said it expects revenue to continue to grow by 17.3%, topping $206 billion next year.  That's up from $175.8 billion in 2018. 

The analyst firm points out that the fastest-growing segment of the market is cloud system infrastructure services (Infrastructure-as-a-service or IaaS), which includes the bulk of the public cloud services offered by companies such as Amazon Web Services Inc., adding that it will remain the fastest-growing individual segment in the market, growing by 27.6% in 2019 to reach $39.5 billion, up from $31 billion in 2018.

Moreover, Gartner said it expects that by 2022, 90% of organizations purchasing public cloud IaaS will do so from a company that integrates these offerings with platform-as-a-service products, using both capabilities from the same provider.

Gartner Survey Says Cloud Computing Remains Top Emerging Business Risk

Grazed from Gartner

Cloud computing ranks as the top risk concern for executives in risk, audit, finance and compliance, according to the latest survey by Gartner, Inc. While cloud computing presents organizations with novel opportunities, a number of new risks - including cybersecurity disclosure and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance - make cloud solutions susceptible to unexpected security threats.

In Gartner's latest quarterly Emerging Risks Report, 110 senior executives in risk, audit, finance and compliance at large global organizations identified cloud computing as the top concern for the second consecutive quarter. Additional information security risks, such as cybersecurity disclosure and GDPR compliance, ranked among the top five concerns of the executives surveyed.

The top two fast-moving, high-impact risks - those which have the ability to cripple an organization quickly - are also related to information security threats. Social engineering and GDPR compliance were cited as most likely to cause the greatest enterprise damage if not adequately addressed by risk management leaders, according to Gartner. However, only 18 percent of the cross-functional executives surveyed currently considered social engineering to be a significant enterprise risk.

Ovum Places Ericom Shield "On the Radar" for Secure Browsing

Grazed from Ericom Software

Ericom Software announced today that leading global analyst firm Ovum has chosen to cover Ericom Shield in its "On the Radar" series. Ericom Shield leverages strong remote browser isolation technology to protect organizations against known and unknown web-borne threats including ransomware, drive-by downloads, zero-day attacks, and crypto-jacking.  

According to Ovum, every "organization with an online presence is susceptible to attack and their systems can be put at risk to browser-borne malware." In the "On the Radar: Ericom Shield provides secure browsing facilities" report, Ovum recommends Ericom Shield as an additional layer of protection against malware that "penetrates and attaches itself to business systems via inadequately protected browsers", in conjunction with firewalls, URL filtering and other traditional protection tools.

Ovum singles out Ericom Shield's centrally managed design, which requires "no on-browser or on-device software" as a key advantage of the solution. The report also highlights the pre-integrated content disarm and reconstruction (CDR) tools that are included in Ericom Shield, which sanitize files of potential malware before they are downloaded from the internet to endpoints.
