Executive Summary
Cloud computing is creating a new world of benefits for users and providers alike, but is also creating new concerns around security and risk management that must be dealt with for cloud computing to reach its ultimate potential. In fact, when it comes to cloud computing, security has been a major inhibitor for businesses. This is why security needs to be consideration number one for any service provider planning to offer hosted cloud computing services.

To provide security in the cloud, it is necessary to address the most significant underlying technology of the cloud: virtualization of workloads and servers. Service providers want to employ the largest pool of shared resources possible for their offerings because the more they can host on their virtualized infrastructure, the more business they can take on. But key to maximizing the effectiveness of this virtualized capacity is security purpose-built for the environment.
