    Consistent security for all data from cloud providers and third-party partners is what many consider the next evolution of cloud. The biggest cloud security threats for most companies, however, result from in-house staff mistakes, lack of patching and misconfiguration.

    Even when the risks associated with cloud security threats are high, the cost benefits to organizations outweigh the risks. Enterprise spending for public cloud services worldwide is expected to reach $160 billion in 2018, according to the International Data Corporation. Software as a service still has the highest growth, followed by infrastructure as a service and platform as a service.
