Are SMBs gaining significant IT security benefits from using the cloud?
A recent Microsoft Study ( http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/Press/2012/May12/05-14SMBSecuritySur... ) shows that 35 percent of U.S. SMBs surveyed have experienced noticeably higher levels of security since moving to the cloud. In addition, 32 percent say they spend less time worrying about the threat of cyberattacks. U.S. SMBs using the cloud also spend 32 percent less time each week managing security than companies not using the cloud. They are also five times more likely to have reduced what they spend on managing security as a percentage of overall IT budget.
In Europe, is security in the cloud perceived as better than the security on-premise?
