Published on 17 November 2020

In 2016 alone, 90% of the businesses were victims of some form of cyberattacks. That number is snowballing each year.

Indeed, hackers are growing increasingly sophisticated, and resourceful in their attacks. Today, roughly 55% of all breaches are the work of organized crime groups.

What’s even more worrying is that the migration to the cloud has not hampered their activities. In fact, the increased use in cloud service has result in increase in cyberattacks. This year, cloud-based cyberattacks on businesses went up to 630% globally.

Does that mean organizations must reconsider their digital transformation strategy?

Cloud and hybrid environments are the future of business. According to research, 70% of The CIOs will have a formal cloud-first strategy and 35% of the mission-critical apps will be cloud-native by 2022.
