VIDEO: Cloud is turning computing into a utility

Infosecurity Europe is Europe's number one information security event, and ITProPortal headed down to London's Earls Court exhibition centre to bring you all the action as it unfolded.

Featuring over 325 exhibitors, the most diverse range of new products and services in the market, an unrivalled education programme, and over 13,000 unique visitors from every segment of the industry, Infosecurity has fast become one of the most important dates in the calendar for IT security professionals, decision-makers and evanglists across Europe.

In this video, Willy Leitcher of Cyphercloud tells us why data loss when moving data to the cloud is one of the biggest challenges businesses face. Willy tells us why compliance is one of the biggest problems for businesses, as well as moving confidential information and trade secrets outside the safety of the corporate networks.

Willy also tells us what the advantages are of moving to the cloud, and how it can give businesses the flexibility to scale and grow. Willy explains how the cloud is turning computing into a utility with pay as you go potential, and shows us why "shadow IT" could be one of the biggest threats to enterprise.
