Palo Alto, California and Petah Tikvah, Israel – March 26, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — 63 percent of enterprises prefer private cloud storage solutions over public offerings like Dropbox, according to new research announced today by CTERA Networks. The research findings are included in CTERA’s 2014 Enterprise Cloud Storage Report, a research study of 200 IT professionals conducted in early 2014 by independent panel research firm Research Now. The report examines the state of the cloud storage usage in the enterprise, and the measures being taken by IT departments to improve the security of cloud storage offerings in their organizations.

The report can be downloaded here:

Key findings include:

  • Organizations are racing to establish contemporary cloud storage solutions that they can control. Of organizations that have implemented or are considering a file sync & share (FSS) offering, 63 percent indicated that they favor a private cloud storage solution run either on hosted (“virtual private”) infrastructure or in their own datacenter, with larger enterprises of 10,000 employees or more stating a preference for a completely private cloud.
  • The enterprise is moving quickly to deliver the collaborative and mobility benefits of cloud storage while also meeting their own internal control and privacy policies:
    • 25 percent of organizations have already implemented private cloud file sync & share tools, while 20 percent of organizations have implemented cloud storage gateways.
    • 45 percent of organizations are considering private cloud file sync & share tools, while 38 percent of organizations are considering implementing cloud storage gateways.
  • SaaS-based cloud storage offerings are creating organizational havoc. Thirty-one percent of respondents indicated that they have experienced corporate data leakage in 2013 as a result of employees sharing files via often-unsanctioned FSS services. Additionally, 71 percent are concerned or extremely concerned about data breaches.
  • To prevent data leakage, 55 percent of organizations with 30,000 employees or more expressly forbid the usage of SaaS-based file-sharing solutions.

“Enterprises are seeking ways to capitalize on the benefits that cloud storage can provide, but not at the cost of losing control of their data. The market is flooded with SaaS offerings, but solutions that can scale on private and hybrid clouds are in short supply,” said Rani Osnat, VP of Strategic Marketing & Customer Experience at CTERA. “This independent research validates what we have been hearing from our customers: a clear preference for a platform they can manage and run using the infrastructure of their choice, with both enterprise-grade security and compelling end-user experience.”
