According to a recent report from betanews, financial services companies — like companies in every industry — are turning to cloud computing to meet their technology needs. They’re doing it somewhat slower than other industries, however. A recent survey from the Cloud Security Alliance found that 61 percent of the respondents from financial companies felt that their cloud strategy was in its formative stages.
While 39 to 47 percent of the respondents stated that their company was planning a mix of in-house IT, private and public clouds, another 18 percent stated that they were planning to use private clouds. Most stated that they would not use managed public cloud services.
80 percent of the respondents stated that what they want from their cloud service providers is increased transparency and better auditing. 57 percent want better data encryption. With federal regulations compliance factoring heavily in the financial industry, 75 percent of the respondents stated that data protection was their biggest need.
Managed private cloud services bring the best of on-premises control and cloud. While some of the services we offer may not be appropriate for your business needs, there are others that may be just right for you. Cloud services are on-demand, meaning you only pay for what you need.
