Cloud Adoption and Risk Report

Hard data on the top cloud services and their risks

Over the last 12 months, cloud usage surged 52 percent. The average company now uses 831 cloud services, which comes to a surprise to many in IT. When asked, 72% of IT professionals said they did not know the scope of shadow IT at their company but wanted to know. In the 5th quarterly cloud report, Skyhigh shines a light on cloud usage, revealing the top 20 enterprise services, top 20 consumer services making inroads in the enterprise, and fastest growing services.

What makes this report unique is that we base on our findings on anonymized usage data for over 13 million users. For the first time, we’ve compared our usage data with perceptions of cloud usage by IT professionals. What we discovered was a “cloud enforcement gap” between what IT intends to block and actual block rates. In this report, we also detail a perception vs reality gap for insider threats, and the number of services that enforce strong passwords and have third party certifications including SAS 70, SSAE16, and ISAE 3402.
