Despite persisting concerns about security, four times the number of government agencies are considering cloud computing now than a year ago, according to a new report.
Nearly 50% of government IT professionals surveyed in a new study by Lockheed Martin and its Cyber Security Alliance partners said they would trust the cloud for at least some applications, versus 12% a year ago. Lockheed Martin, along with partners in an alliance it formed in 2009 to conduct cybersecurity research, commissioned the survey, which was conducted by Market Connections.
