More businesses in the UK could be seeking to hire people in IT jobs to help them move to the cloud as they seek greater security.
Security and regulatory compliance is a major advantage to cloud computing, explained John Dunn, security editor at technology website Techworld.
"The security layer the companies have, the security software and products they buy and the infrastructure they run means there is a real move to actually buy that as a service," he said.
"All of the traffic that goes in and out of your company will come through a layer that's run by a cloud company – it will be filtered and looked at."
He remarked that putting a cloud layer in-between a business and customers makes it harder for attacks to occur.
Indeed, this could be important after GFI Software reported that cyber threats are spreading to a wide range of potential victims, from government bodies to consumers and businesses.
