UAE’s Cloud Computing As Security On An Upward March According To Latest Analysis

UAE’s Cloud Computing as Security on an Upward March according to Latest Analysis

Despite ranking as one of the telltale recipients of spam, en masse, on the planet, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has faced all odds and championed the cloud like no other country in the Gulf. A reputable research agency, on tech matters, has provided the latest details on this progress, to the effect that cloud computing security is taking a life of its own in the UAE.

Reports show that the  nation’s gross returns on the security wing, alone, inside the cloud industry was about $8.7M in 2012, and projections indicate this might rise manifold, to hit over seventy two million dollars, by the turn of the current decade. The upshot growth of the security subsector underlies the fact that an aggregation of companies in the logistics and wholesale niches has plunged into the sector, with staying power. There are even hints that as the anti-spam and other safety-in-the-cloud campaigns, take center stage, there may even evolve a ‘cloud as a service’ framework that will be an industry preferential to safety matters for organizations.

Though, the United Arab Emirates with Dubai and Abu Dhabi being its computing hotspots, is still lagging in its unilateral embrace of the cloud. However, the fact that the industry has survived and even shown handsome returns, even in its small scope and amid a fusillade of web threats, means it may yet prove an attractive prospect for the majority. The major tags that are predisposing this future inclination are the benefits the industry brings forth, including the pay-as-you-use flexibility and big data storage provision, besides retailers’ technologies, all accessible in a click.

Impressive, too, for the country’s improvement in the cloud security niche, is the fact that large companies that form the very lifeline of the country’s economy are also in the fold. From gas multinationals to petroleum giants and from financial institutions to government corporations, the tide is turning all the way to the cloud atop the UAE’s Internet.

New Threats for Corporations

Amid the growth of the safety offering of cloud computing in the UAE, there is now evidence that this growth is coming, hand in hand, with grim prospects. Social networking by corporate workers of companies may yet prove the means by which information-phishing, ID thievery and other data hijacking limitations may proliferate into the country’s cloud. Inversely, however, it might also be the means of strengthening the industry. According to the latest survey figures, there will be corporations that will turn external environment’s weaknesses, such as, the social networking sites that their staff access, into ways of appropriating new security apps. Indeed, this is already happening as major organizations start to comb the developer and even in-house markets for the latest stats that can nip web threats in the bud.

Scores by Neighboring Countries

Despite being another high performer on the negative spam list of the world, India, to the south of the UAE, has also made gains in the cloud. Vaunting one of the biggest markets for IT firms among emerging economies that include Russia and China, the country has now a projection for 2013 that traces an ongoing growth margin of 36%, in the cloud market. This will amount into $443M, an increase of $127M from the 2012 figures. This is hardly a surprise because the cloud market is a highly scalable one, like most IT dispensations, and thus can grow manifold. However, how is the security factor faring, in the mean time?

Reports for 2013 show that, with some 11% of the market, the cloud security factor in India just manages to inch at the bottom of its top five cloud priorities. The leader is Software as a Service (SaaS), but what astonishes is that advertising comes before the safety factor. Still, the country may expect an improvement, in coming years, for most companies now combine management with their security wings, meaning a close priority for the latter in any management task.

Thus, as UAE takes a leap forward in the cloud security offering, India is experiencing a hike in general cloud growth. The fact that both countries are spamming receiving ends of the world does not seem to check the improvements and may even turn the dice, in their favor, as they seek applications to overturn the newest security threats. This is why many corporations in the United Arabs Emirates are going a step further by actually marketing their very security prowess, to assure their clients.
