CIOs greatly underestimate how many cloud apps their organization uses, report finds

Organizations are using far more cloud apps than their CIOs think, according to Symantec's Internet Security Threat Report.

While organizations used an average of 928 cloud apps each last year, most CIOs said their organizations only used between 30 to 40. This pattern is worrisome, since a lack of concrete policies around cloud usage may lead to risky IT security practices, according to Symantec.

The number of cloud apps organizations use has steadily increased over the past few years. In 2016, the average number of cloud apps was 841. In 2015, the average was only 774 cloud apps.
