Cloud Adoption in the U.S. Federal Government

A Ponemon Institute survey, sponsored by Forcepoint

A 2017 executive order focused on strengthening cybersecurity in the federal government reaffirmed a commitment to cloud computing initiatives as part of agencies’ IT modernization plans. Two years later, Ponemon Institute—in partnership with Forcepoint—surveyed those agencies on their cloud adoption progress and challenges.

The results of this study demonstrate the importance of enabling security technologies, automation, data protection, and compliance to achieving a secure cloud ecosystem. In particular, the report examines:

  • Importance of SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS adoption across agencies and their related security concerns
  • Adoption of cloud technologies and move toward hybrid or cloud infrastructures
  • Challenges with shadow IT and cloud providers that are not FedRAMP approved
