McAfee Report Demonstrates That Data Is Widely Dispersed in the Cloud Beyond Most Enterprise Control

February 12, 2020 / mcafee

McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, today released a new research study titled Enterprise Supernova: The Data Dispersion Cloud Adoption and Risk Report . The results describe the broad distribution of data across devices and the cloud, highlighting critical gaps for enterprise security. Seventy-nine percent of companies surveyed store sensitive data in the public cloud. While these companies approve an average of 41 cloud services each, up 33 percent from last year, thousands of other services are used ad-hoc without vetting. In addition, 52 percent of companies use cloud services that have had user data stolen in a breach. By leaving significant gaps into the visibility of their data, organizations leave themselves open to loss of sensitive data and to regulatory non-compliance.
