Fear your on-premises security, not the cloud

A new research report from cloud security provider CloudLock argues that more than a quarter of cloud workloads used in corporate environments are “high risk.” Of course, CloudLock is biased; it makes a living spreading FUD about security, tapping into old-school IT fears about cloud computing. Its conclusions are largely foregone.

Although this is yet another self-serving report from a vendor, it’s a good opportunity for me to make sense of this information for everyone else.

First, the alternative to using the cloud is to leave the applications pretty much unprotected on premises.
