Businesses continue to adopt a “cloud-first strategy” at an accelerated pace. Consider the following stats from IDC Research highlighted by the Wall Street Journal:
- Worldwide spending on public cloud services is estimated to grow by a 19.4% compound annual rate over the next four years, to $141 billion in 2019, from $70 billion in 2015.
- Over that period, businesses are expected to spend six times more on public cloud services than they do on overall information technology.
- Software-as-a-Service will remain the dominant cloud tool used by businesses in the years ahead, attracting two thirds of total spending on public cloud.

No matter where they “live” – on-premises or in the cloud – privileged accounts need to be protected accounts.
