클라우드 상에서의 보안에 대한 우려, 근거가 없는 것일까?

Please find the English language post from which this was adapted here. 조직들이 클라우드를 도입할 경우 비용 절감, 비즈니스 민첩성, 그리고 다수의 컴퓨팅 디바이스를 사용하는 직원들의 생산성 향상 등을 비롯해 얻게 되는 장점이 많다는 점은 부인할 수 없다. IDC는 2014년 전세계 클라우드 시장 규모가 761억 달러에 이르렀고 2015년에는 23.3%의 성장률을 기록하며 1180억 달러에 이를 것으로 전망하고 있다. 또한, IT부서의 65% 이상이 2016년까지 하이브리드 클라우드를 채택할 것으로 내다봤다. 또 다른 시장조사기관인 테크놀로지 비즈니스 리서치(TBR)도 클라우드 시장이 더욱 성장할 것이라고 밝혔다.
