Data Security #

The ultimate challenge in cloud computing is data-level security, and sensitive data is the domain of the enterprise, not the cloud computing provider. Security will need to move to the data level so that enterprises can be sure their data is protected wherever it goes. For example, with data-level security, the enterprise can specify that this data is not allowed to go outside of the United States. It can also force encryption of certain types of data, and permit only specified users to access the data. It can provide compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). True unified end-to-end security in the cloud will likely requires an ecosystem of partners.
