In the wake of the celebrity photo breach, the media is humming with stories disparaging the safety of the cloud. Many longtime cloud critics are crowing, “I told you so!” and waiting for the world to go back to on-premises solutions only.
News flash: 1) the cloud was never touted as being perfectly secure and 2) the cloud will continue to grow and grow. The number of servers in your physical environment will shrink over time. Security doesn’t sell solutions — features and pricing do. Features are cheaper in the cloud.
