Cloud computing is fast becoming the method of choice for many businesses. According to a survey conducted by companies currently use public clouds for 41 per cent of their workloads.
Cloud computing services rely on a network of remote, distributed, virtual servers connected on the Internet. When changing to the cloud, a business needs to work with a cloud service provider (CPS) to deal with managing and maintaining the service.
Even though a service provider provides the cloud, the primary responsibility for protecting corporate data in the cloud lies with the cloud customer.
