Cloud computing represents a new era in information technology with a profound impact upon the security industry. Businesses are aggressively adopting cloud services, with long term strategic plans to fully embrace a utility mode of computing over the course of the next decade. Virtually all major IT and telecommunications companies either offer cloud services now, or are planning to in the near future. While the cloud computing boom enables business agility and lower IT costs, security is consistantly cited as a top concern in moving to the cloud.
