In this report, we share key findings from the 2023 Thales Cloud Security Study, focusing on results specific to the Europe and Middle East (EME) region. EME, like the rest of the world, has become cloud-first and multicloud. As a result, the majority of IT security professionals report that it is now even more complex to secure the cloud. The latest edition, based on a survey of 1,180 respondents in seven EME markets, explores the challenges of security in cloud environments that have become a critical element in modern digital infrastructure and services. Unsurprisingly, many of the results from the EME region are close to the global responses, but we call out key differences as applicable.
