The cloud has arrived in German enterprises. 92% of companies in the country are already using cloud services, plan to introduce them in the next 12 months, or are awaiting internal approval for them, according to the “Cloud Security 2019” study conducted by IDG Research Services. Only 8% of the companies surveyed down-voted any form of storing data in the cloud.
When moving to the cloud, the companies asked said they chose the model carefully. The price was not the only key criteria, and security was priority number one for almost all asked. A close second was data encryption, and then cloud service provider reliability.
But how safe are files in the cloud?
Twelve percent of companies don’t know if they have ever fallen victim to an attack. Around half of the companies had already detected attacks. Many companies see a solution in established concepts: encryption, firewalls, and local backups. But these IT security classics only partially address advanced forms of cyber crime.
There are now ingenious methods of protecting the cloud against all types of attacks, as Sophos, Mimecast, and tenfold demonstrate. Get Sophos Cloud Services like Microsoft Azure or protect your services like O365 e-mail with Mimecast. The most important thing is that only authorised users have access to data, making managing permissions ten times easier.

The company Oxford has been developing IT security products for over 30 years. As a leading next generation cyber security solutions provider, Sophos protects almost 400,000 in over 150 countries.
Behind Sophos software solutions is SophosLabs and a global team conducting threat and data analyses. In 2019, Sophos acquired Avid Secure—the San Francisco based company specialising in public clouds with artificial intelligence (AI).
In an international comparison study entitled “Exposed: Cyberattacks on cloud honeypots”, Sophos demonstrated how real the attack potential for public clouds is. A fake server set up in Frankfurt for experimentation had to fend off 440,000 attacks in the space of a 30 day period, more than in London or Singapore.
With the new security solutions for public clouds, Sophos uses AI to automatically detect and close security vulnerabilities. The solution can be used independently of any other security products and offers:
