At the same time Trend Micro reported Nearly a quarter of all companies were affected by seven or more cyberattacks in the past year, and 83% believe these attacks will be successful in the coming year. One of the most important areas of the IT infrastructure at risk is the cloud and therefore also the data in the cloud.
