Press, Strategy & Utility: Are IT managers starting to trust the cloud?

[September 2010]

Commenting on the survey, Richard Hall, CEO of CloudOrigin, said that  the current trend of businesses migrating their IT systems into the  cloud does not mean a reduction in security defences.

“After decades performing forensic and preventative IT security reviews  within banking and government, it was already clear to me that the bulk  of security breaches and data losses occur because of a weakness of  internal controls,” he said in his 360IT  blog post.

According to Hall, the complete automation by public cloud providers  means the dynamic provision, use and re-purposing of a virtual server  occurs continuously within encrypted sub-nets. “That’s why solutions  built on commodity infrastructure provided by the likes of Amazon Web  Services have already achieved the highest standards of operational  compliance and audit possible,” he said.
