Cloud computing security from user perspective
Cloud computing security is approached from two directions; the cloud provider, and the end user. Regarding the provider, our strategy is "trust but verify," and ensuring that we use a cloud provider that offers a state of the art data center, 24x7 physical and virtual security, monitoring and alerts, etc. But what steps can you take as a client of a hosting provider to make sure your software-as-a-service and infrastructure-as-a-service products are safe? Or, are we just left to rely solely on the provider?
