White Paper: Security Fears & Cloud ComputingSource: AVG Technologies USA, Inc.
Cloud computing could fundamentally change the way businesses adopt new applications and computing power, but it also introduces new threats from a security perspective.
Cloud computing has been widely heralded as the "next big thing" in technology circles. At the same time it has arguably been overcomplicated in terms of the way it has been described.
What if I told you that "Hotmail" was a good example of cloud computing, would that make it more straightforward? The concept really is as fundamental as a user tapping into a data centre via his or her Internet connection to get access to an online service, which in this example would be Hotmail email.
