Article on "Cloud Computing – a Security Risk?" from Martin Kuppinger available

Duesseldorf March, 04th, 2010 - Martin Kuppinger is Co-Founder and Principal Analyst of Kuppinger Cole. He has written an article entitled “Cloud Computing – a Security Risk?” in which he explores the various and often conflicting definitions of the “Cloud” before turning to the complicated, but vitally important question of cloud security. According to Mr. Kuppinger, cloud computing is at best a “calculated risk”, at least as long as certain strategic preconditions are met, which he describes in detail.
