Re: Numbers don't add up
I'm still not getting those numbers. Here's the math: 


2,000,000,000 x 0.0119 = 2,380,000


1,000 x 0.0119 = 11.9


I think the issue may be in your decimal place. 1.19% = 0.0119

Re: Numbers don't add up
YCR: This is why I love Dark Reading's readers, they are the sharpest and most technical audience and they keep all of us on the reporting side honest. Turns out the number of high risk devices from the Skycure report was 1.19% so when you do the math 1.19% times 2 billion equals 23.8 million. So nothing wrong with the report. Just an old history/journalism major making too many assumptions about rounding off. I suppose there was a reason I became a writer and not a computer scientist and certainly not an accountant. I continue to be in awe of this community.

Numbers don't add up
These numbers do not add up since 2% of 1000 is 20, and 2% of 2 Billion is 4,000,000. I wonder if they made any other miscalculations in their study? The report is interesting but now I cannot trust the other numbers either.

The Promise and Reality of Cloud Security
Cloud security has been part of the cybersecurity conversation for years but has been on the sidelines for most enterprises.

This report - a compilation of cutting-edge Black Hat research, in-depth Omdia analysis, and comprehensive Dark Reading reporting - explores how cloud security is rapidly evolving.
