Cloud computing offers new possibilities and new security challenges. These challenges range from governance, through to securing application and infrastructure. Fundamentally it is important to be able to assure the security of these new models in order to build trust and confidence. Some of the growing cloud security concerns include: security of highly virtualised environments from targeted threats and attacks, enabling secure collaboration, protection of the data (isolation, sharing) in a rapid provisioning and de-provisioning environment while experiencing the loss of direct control of security compliance and privacy parameters.
This IBM white paper enables discussion around the new security challenges cloud introduces and how these are addressed by IBM's cloud offerings.
