Employees in the UK now have a better chance of working within an office space which has incorporated cloud computing into their business strategy.
This is after the Symantec 2011 State of Cloud Security report revealed that 76 per cent of British firms involved in its study have either made use of the cloud, or look to do so in the months ahead.
When asked of the benefits which they see regarding cloud computing, 91 per cent felt that the innovative technology will cause no damage to security, while perhaps improving it in some ways.
Applied Research-West carried out the study, which involved C-level staff and IT managers from 5,300 organisations in 38 countries across the world.
For companies still debating whether to move to the cloud, Adrian Seccombe, former chief information security officer at pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly and a member of the Jericho Forum, believes that they should “start small, and to start by choosing information that won’t hurt if it gets compromised”.
In other changes to office space design, Robert Hokin, chief executive of ecoConnect CIC, recently said that he believes that efforts to make workplaces greener have “definitely” increased over the past few years.
