The Trend Cloud Security Blog is dedicated to the discussion of cloud computing security issues. Enterprises are aggressively pursuing virtualization and cloud computing because of the benefits it affords: reduction of IT costs, increased flexibility, greater scalability, etc. Equally important, however, is IT security. In this blog we strive to address the challenges presented to infrastructure security and provide a framework for evaluating cloud security – both security for the cloud and cloud-based security.
How do you secure the cloud? Private or public cloud? What are the advantages of cloud-based security? Who’s responsible for stolen data? Is EC2 PCI compliant? If you are reading this, you are probably already tackling these issues and we invite you to join our dialogue.
For a definition of cloud computing, please view the Cloud Security Alliance whitepaper: “Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing.”
