Cloud Adoption and Risk Report

Hard data on the top cloud services and their risks

The average company uses 923 cloud services, which is more than 10 times more than IT expects. Employee-led cloud adoption is transforming the enterprise, and the average person now uses 28 cloud apps regularly. In the 7th quarterly cloud report, we cover the top 20 enterprise cloud services, the top 20 consumer services making inroads in the enterprise, the fastest growing services, and the top 10 high-risk cloud services your company may want to block.

What makes this report unique is that we base on our findings on anonymized usage data for over 17 million users, rather than surveys that ask people to self-report their behavior. For the first time, we’ve quantified how companies connect to business partners via the cloud – the type of partners that attackers exploited in the $148 million Target breach. We also detail an emerging class of cloud service hyperconnectors and well-connected “super partners” that are driving the cloud economy, as well as the riskiest types of partners that need closer attention.
