India's enterprises prioritise security more than their global counterparts: Nutanix report – Economic Times

Chennai: As much as 55% of India’s enterprises cited security and compliance as the prevailing reasons for shifting applications to a different infrastructure in the past year, a report by cloud computing company Nutanix said.

This is 14 percentage points higher than the global average (41%), Nutanix’s fourth annual Enterprise Cloud Index (ECI) report said. This shows that Indian companies prioritise security more than their global counterparts, Nutanix said.

At the same time, Nutanix said enterprises are still maturing in their understanding of multi-cloud security management, or the management of security across dissimilar clouds. These companies are learning to reach for hybrid multi-cloud tools that enable centralised management to alleviate such issues.

The report also showed that 84% of enterprises in India prefer hybrid multi-cloud as their ideal operating model, and that 58% are expecting to implement such environments within three years.

“India’s digital transformation has been primarily fuelled by hybrid multi-cloud adoption as it offers simplicity, agility, manageability and scalability that most organisations seek to compete in today’s digital world,” said Faiz Shakir, managing director – sales, India and Saarc, Nutanix.

Growing acceptance of the public cloud as an extension to private infrastructure and as a critical platform for supporting the shift to remote work is fuelling this trend, according to the ECI report. Nearly one in five respondents from India (19%) said they already use three or more public cloud providers, outpacing the global (13%) and APAC regional averages (12%), it said.
