PaaS Security Both a Plus and a Minus
Asked about the barriers of implementing a PaaS environment, 67 percent of the executives respondents polled cite security as the biggest concern. At the same time, 41 percent believe that PaaS could actually improve their agency's security posture, and 83 percent of those who have already made the move to PaaS say that the transition didn't disrupt the security of agency data.
Federal tech executives also report that contractual lock-ins with current vendors are an impediment to adopting PaaS technologies, and they see challenges in winning support from the highest levels of agency leadership.
