Cloud computing makes a lot of promises in the areas of increased flexibility and agility, potential cost savings, and competitive advantages for developers so that they can stand up an infrastructure quickly and efficiently to enable then to develop the software to drive business success. There are a lot of problems that cloud, especially private cloud solves, but one of those isn’t security.
