Security in the Cloud: Protecting Your Applications

motif

Security around public cloud offerings has always been a major point of concern (and controversy) for users. How do cloud providers protect customer data? How is log data protected? How is the surrounding infrastructure secured? We previous talked about how iON stays up and running even through EC2 outages.
