Unfortunately, the survey findings also revealed that cloud storage was a major issue when it comes to compliance.
- 1 in 3 respondents (33.3%) said a ‘lack of effective reporting and auditing tools’ is a reason the cloud cannot be used to store data in their organisation.
- 2 in 10 respondents (21.6%) claimed compliance regulations prevent their organisations from storing data in the cloud.
- ‘Lack of trust’ (42.2%) and a ‘hard requirement data on-premises’ (37.8%) were the most commonly cited reasons for not storing data in the cloud.
To address the mounting challenges faced by IT teams, Hornetsecurity has created a way for any-sized companies to alleviate compliance burdens with its next-gen all-in-one email security, backup, compliance and security awareness solution for Microsoft 365, 365 Total Protection. Additional value is added by coupling this with Hornetsecurity’s newly launched 365 Permission Manager, which delivers effortless permissions management, enabling administrators to control Microsoft 365 permissions, enforce compliance policies, and monitor violations in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.
Hofmann added: “Hornetsecurity’s offerings for M365 helps to deliver easy-to-use and effective security, backup, compliance and governance solutions for organisations. For example, the ease of file-storage and file-sharing in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business can quickly create a compliance headache for administrators. Our solutions assist business leaders to work in line with regulations, and importantly, it frees up time and responsibility for IT teams to focus on their essential tasks.”
