Cybersecurity worries a third of IT managers in Snow survey

The top infrastructure management challenge for the many organisations working with hybrid cloud could be cyber threat, a poll by Snow Software has suggested.

According to the vendor, 68% of respondents indicate moving to hybrid cloud, and about a third said that mounting cybersecurity threats are their greatest infrastructure management challenge.

“Cloud infrastructure has been positioned to IT leaders as the ultimate solution to many of their management challenges,” according to Snow chief information officer Alastair Pooley.

“While the promise of cloud — agile, fast, affordable, and more secure — can be realised, organisations often underestimate the full scope of what is needed to truly reap these benefits.”

Snow spoke to about 500 IT leaders from organisations with more than 500 employees in the US and UK for their survey.

Pooley said that organisations implementing a cloud infrastructure are not only dealing with technological complexities but how to find and retain the people with the right skills for cloud.

“The scope of the challenge underscores the value of having end-to-end, hybrid infrastructure visibility across spend, governance, compliance and security,” he said.

In the poll, 26% of respondents cited poorly integrated new and old infrastructure technologies, 25% reported governance and compliance requirements as an issue, and 24% noted that managing spend presented issues.

Eighteen percent pointed to a lack of adequate skills and 14% wanted more standardisation in the cloud.

At the same time, 46% of IT leaders polled claimed that cloud services had been critical during the pandemic. Some 71% of executives said they were now spending more on cloud overall — up from 56% in 2020.
