    Security should be a part of cloud provider’s core Philosophy. If security isn’t part of the DNA, good luck bolting it on later. After Amazon, SalesForce, and DropBox; now iCloud has also hit the news, putting another “question mark” on Cloud security.

    But in my opinion, cloud is strongly secured. There are many other factors that we sometimes neglect to consider before jumping to the decision.

    Here’s an article on Cloud security that I found very informative, and may address most of your questions regarding cloud-security.
