The increasing adoption of cloud-based services has enabled organisations to benefit from a more agile and elastic ICT infrastructure. This contrasts against the traditional model IT departments utilised to deliver services to their businesses in that there is no longer a monolithic set of infrastructure and services which can be easily secured. IT departments now face the hurdle of having to secure business data which resides across a multiple cloud assets which may include public, private or hybrid cloud deployment models with varying services. In certain scenarios, this may just be IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), however, the use of PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) offerings like Office 365, and ServiceNow are being rapidly adopted in modern enterprises.

The adoption of these platforms leads to concerns around access governance, data loss, regulatory compliance and data privacy.
