Report Overview

The Cloud Risk Surface Report is a new research study between RiskRecon and the Cyentia Institute, seeking to answer the question: Are organizations more secure in the cloud?

While the study found that 60% of organizations face higher-severity risk exposures in their cloud infrastructure, the study reveals various dynamics at play in cloud computing that influence an organization’s cloud success.

Key Finding #1

Comparison of hosts with severe findings in on-prem vs. cloud environments

Each dot represents an organization in our dataset with hosts that have high or critical findings both in the cloud and on-premises. Their position on the grid portrays the percentage of internal (horizontal axis) and cloud-based (vertical axis) hosts that have high or critical security findings. Blue dots indicate firms that have comparatively fewer security issues in the cloud. Green dots, conversely, appear better off on-prem.
