Netskope Cloud Report™: Software Development, Marketing and Productivity Cloud Apps Rank Lowest in Enterprise Readiness

  • Enterprise Resource Planning, Document Management and Security among top-scoring cloud app categories
  • Salesforce, Box, Syncplicity, Workday and NetSuite among top 10 most enterprise-ready cloud apps

LOS ALTOS, Calif. – Oct. 3, 2012 – Enterprises today no longer have a choice about whether they embrace the cloud as their employees are already using cloud apps to perform critical business functions, often without IT’s involvement. Netskope, the cloud app analytics and policy company, today unveiled its inaugural Netskope Cloud ReportTM. For the report, which is available on the Netskope blog, we analyzed data from Netskope’s Cloud Confidence IndexTM (CCI), a database of more than 2,600 cloud apps. We reviewed app characteristics such as security, auditability and disaster recovery, and assigned each app a CCI score between 0-100.

According to Sanjay Beri, Netskope CEO, “We launched the Netskope Cloud Report to give IT and business decision-makers insights into cloud app risks, opportunities and usage trends that will help them make the most informed decisions.”

Bottom-scoring Categories

What immediately jumped out after analyzing the CCI data are the app categories that rank high and low in the CCI. The bottom-scoring cloud app categories in terms of average CCI score are Software Development, Marketing and Productivity. These categories fall short because they lack features such as app compliance certifications, encryption of data at rest and enforcement of complex passwords.

Top-scoring Categories

The top scoring cloud app categories are Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Document Management,and Security. “The top-scoring apps tend to address audit logging, granular role-based policies and separation of customers’ data in the cloud much better than bottom-scoring apps,” said Beri.

“Businesses should be diligent about ensuring that their cloud apps include baseline security and enterprise-readiness features,” said Beri. “Solutions like Netskope can help supplement some of the features that may be lacking, such as auditability, and can do it consistently across all apps.”

Top 10 Highest Scoring Cloud Apps:

  1. Salesforce.com – CRM and SFA
  2. Box – Cloud Storage
  3. CrashPlan – Cloud Backup
  4. Amazon Web Services – Infrastructure
  5. EasyVista – IT/Application Management
  6. Workday – HR
  7. Syncplicity – Cloud Storage
  8. eVault – Cloud Storage
  9. Zoho – Collaboration
  10. NetSuite – Enterprise Resource Planning
