Businesses have 'lack of understanding' on security issues surrounding cloud computing

There is still a "lack of understanding" among businesses about the benefits of cloud computing as many overestimate fears over its security.

That is according to Rob Lovell, the chief executive officer of ThinkGrid, who said that having data stored in the cloud is much more secure that safeguarding it on-site.

A report by Ovum, published earlier this week, said that security, cloud computing and sustainability will be the three most important trends in business IT next year.

Mr Lovell added that cloud can provide firms with "the benefits of large-scale IT at an affordable price" as well as the ability to work from anywhere.

"We are now at a time where technology can enable them to break free and work anytime and anywhere," he said.

"Cloud computing not only promotes this type of freedom but also ensures that it is economically viable."

Ovum's report also found that cloud computing will continue to grow in 2011 as more people take advantage of the flexible working possibilities.
