2022 Thales Cloud
The Challenges of Data Protection in a Multicloud World
The 2022 Thales Cloud Security Study polled nearly 2,800 IT professionals in 17 countries in five regions (USA, Canada, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America). The Asia Pacific (APAC) section of the report focuses on data from respondents in seven key markets in the APAC region — Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea — constituting 876 respondents from midsize to large enterprises. The study examines major cloud and cloud security trends that are reflected in survey data across the region. In this report, we consider trends seen in APAC, how they compare globally and with other regions – as well as with prior research – and how all these factors are manifested in APAC. Unless noted otherwise, ‘respondents’ in this report refers to APAC-based respondents.
