We issued today our 2015 Vormetric Insider Threat Report – Japan and ASEAN Edition, and the results have been a study in contrasts. Results for ASEAN are the closest match from our sample set to those of U.S. respondents, while those from Japan are often closer to the results from our first Vormetric Insider Threat Report in 2013.

It’s a cloudy world out there – as seen by the cloud’s adoption and while the cloud creates an added layer of efficiency, enterprises are wondering how much trust is too much when it comes to securing the cloud. Heavy reliance on the cloud and proliferation of big data leaves many wondering what information is actually secure. In fact, despite the vast majority of enterprises (80 percent) now making use of cloud environments, most IT decision makers have concerns about […]
