Cloud Adoption and Risk Report

Hard data on the top cloud services and their risks

Companies are beginning to take control of Shadow IT and consolidate users onto approved services. For the first time, the average number of cloud services used in the enterprise declined from 759 to 738 after several quarters of rapid growth. With this report, Skyhigh shines a light on cloud usage, revealing the top 20 enterprise services replacing legacy applications, top 20 consumer services making inroads in the enterprise, and the top services by category.

What makes this report unique is that we base on our findings on anonymized usage data for over 10.5 million users, not surveys or questionnaires. Our data is cross-referenced against Skyhigh’s CloudRegistry, giving an independent assessment of enterprise readiness for all services. In the report, we detail the biggest driver behind data uploaded to high-risk services, statistics on data exfiltration and malware by industry, as well as the number of enterprise-ready services that are ISO 27001 certified and encrypt data at rest.
