Cloud Storage

Panorays: 21% of enterprises have cloud storage in a single region

As more organizations rely on third-party providers for services such as marketing, support, and operation, they are also depending heavily on these providers to protect the data properly. Recent research found that 21% of companies have their cloud storage located in a single region, said third-party security risk management platform provider Panorays.

The service providers may be storing the organization’s data with a cloud provider, and that could expose the organization to risk if the storage is not properly configured. For example, a service provider could host a website within a cloud storage bucket, such as Amazon Web Services Simple Storage Service (S3). The default configurations can lead to security issues because they make the server object and file contents publicly accessible.

Panorays assessed the external cloud infrastructure of third parties’ cloud providers as part of its research. More than 20% of companies have their cloud storage in a single region. This is not surprising, since it’s cheaper and easier for companies to deploy single-region architecture. However, this practice can be problematic when faced with disaster recovery, which is why it’s not recommended.
