Cloud Security Market Landscape Paper

In response to a growing number of cyber threats, GigaOM Pro publishes a report that examines the difference between security for the cloud, and security delivered by the cloud. It also takes a look at the market opportunities tied to the rise of IaaS, key technologies that address security needs for both public and private clouds, and emerging business models and companies to watch. "Cyber threats are now a critical issue affecting the national security of nation countries worldwide. This is thanks to a few factors: the rise of cloud computing and big data and the sometimes unclear virtual boundaries caused by increasingly mobile enterprises, among others," explains Keren Elazari.

The paper titled "Cloud security market landscape, 2013–2017" can be downloaded here. http://pro.gigaom.com/report/cloud-security-market-landscape-2013-2017/


NSA Scandal and Public Cloud Paranoia

The whistle blowing news from Snowden about NSA collecting personal information about everyone, including phone calls data made on the Verizon network, one of America's largest telecoms providers, made people once again distrustful towards public cloud. "While there is not a direct link to cloud computing, there are certain aspects of this situation that may have both existing and future public cloud computing consumers a bit more paranoid than before they heard about the NSA scandal," says David Linthicum.

Linthicum also reminds public cloud providers of what they should be most aware now. In short:

  • You may at one point need to turn over customer information to the government
  • You may reach liability problems with the protection of the data that spans borders
  • The NSA scandal will slow the growth of public cloud computing

Linthicum concludes: "The reality is that there is little reason to slow or stop migration to the public cloud, even given the scare around the recent NSA spying. There is no hard evidence today that public cloud computing providers are monitored without the knowledge of the owners of the data."
