Re: Security concerns are abating, for good reason

Are you basically saying that Encryption/Security should just be bolted onto the Cloud and all is Okay?

I am not so sure.

Unless companies have built in Security/Encryption all across the entire Cloud Infrastructure,nothing much will change.

Still,I liked what the report had to say HERE-

451 Research predicts encryption and security policy management will be part of all future cloud deployment, with encryption deployed either natively or via a third-party solution. Clients will find their best options for cloud security after sorting through internal policies, industry best practices, and compliance mandates.

For big data, 451 Research recommends finding broad-based encryption and access controls that can cover traditional as well as big data repositories.

Just wondering how this plays in with the FBI &NSAs recent assertion that they can't wait for the IoT Wave!

It seems they have already let loose their Eavesdropping Solutions all across the chain and are just waiting for them to gain traction among Consumers.

Security concerns are abating, for good reason
Encryption and security policy management are a future, automated feature of cloud computing and will help make the cloud more secure than the enterprise data center. Another factor: the cloud is a highly uniform environment with patching done regularly and routinely through automated procedures. Only among the fortunate is this true in the enterprise data center.
