Awareness, Trust and Security to Shape Government Cloud Adoption

Lockheed Martin,  Thursday, April 01, 2010

The awareness, trust and security issues that have limited federal government adoption of cloud computing appear to be more perceptual than prohibitive, according to the Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance survey on cloud computing and cyber security conducted by Market Connections, Inc. Professionals who are most aware of and involved with cloud computing and cyber security generally trust the cloud model, and do not consider it a leading security vulnerability1. The findings suggest cloud utilization is poised for rapid gains as awareness of cloud computing and the related cyber security implications grow.
