IDC's Worldwide Public Cloud Security Taxonomy, 2015

This IDC study describes how public cloud security protection provides a competitive market overlay to the existing functional security market taxonomy. It highlights the growing need to maintain control over resources — users, data, and workloads — even when they are hosted or managed in the cloud.

"The public cloud is simply another piece of an enterprise architecture," said Pete Lindstrom, Research Director, Security Solutions. "Organizations that haven't begun integrating the public cloud architectures into their control environments are teetering on the brink of a risk meltdown."
