Faced by a question about how companies prefer to be responsible for data security themselves rather than trust cloud providers with their data, Carraro likened the releasing of control to people in the past when they realised that banks were a safe place to harbour funds.
"People were keeping their money under mattresses," he said. "That has shifted."
He said that organisations would be better off in security terms if they did go with a cloud provider. Ovum's Noonan agreed. However, he had an option for those who weren't convinced.
"If security is your absolute concern, go to your existing service providers and ask them do they have a cloud offering," he said.
