Cloud Security Hype Fails to Match Deployments

Technologies like software-defined perimeter and key management as-a-service generate enthusiasm but will take years to reach mainstream adoption.

Businesses have taken greater interest in securing data, applications, and workloads as they move information to the cloud. However, many top-of-mind security technologies are still years away from deployment at most organizations, as indicated in Gartner's Hype Cycle for Cloud Security.

This year, technologies generating the most enthusiasm include key management as-a-service, data loss protection (DLP) for mobile devices, and software-defined perimeter. Despite the hype, Gartner estimates all will take at least five years to reach mainstream adoption.

On the bottom part of the curve, or "trough of disillusionment," are technologies that failed to meet high expectations. Gartner buckets disaster recovery as-a-service and private cloud computing into this section and anticipates mainstream adoption within two years.

DLP and infrastructure-as-a-service fall on the "slope of enlightenment," meaning experimentation and development of the two technologies are beginning to pay off at more businesses. Researchers anticipate full maturity within the next two years.

Four tools have hit a plateau at which they have broadly demonstrated their benefits in the enterprise. New entrants tokenization, high-assurance hypervisors, and application security as-a-service have joined identity-proofing services in this section.

Cost
A major reason for this comes down to cost, not just direct but operational as well. As ideal as some cloud deployments may sound they typically are more costly. Similar to new purchasing new technologies, once the price is driven down after a few years, they will become more frequently integrated.
