Sntrex is correct. You need to provide detail information about it. Intrusion detection happens anywhere in the world. If the application is not secure hackers might attack it. If you are looking intrusion detection information on cloud computing,


According to the 2009 Data Breach Investigations Report conducted by Verizon Business Risk Team, 64% of data breaches resulted from hacking and intrusions. Dedicated resources are expected to be more secure than shared resources. The attack surface in fully or partially shared cloud environments would be expected to be greater and cause increased risk. Enterprises need confidence and auditable proof that cloud resources are neither being tampered with nor compromised, particularly when residing on shared physical infrastructure. Operating system and application files and activities need to be monitored.


I would recommend you do do a search on cloud security as well.

Also, we have lots of article regarding cloud computing.

oh, i apologize. i should have explained better. what i meant was the one advantage of public cloud taht a lot of people seem to quote is that they are safer form hacking. since the cloud hosts have to deal with N number of companies at one time and not just your company, they have put up stringent security measures to keep all the data secure. how is, in spite of all this, the data vulnerable to be hacked? and as a cloud host, is there any way to detect and prevent hacking ?

umm, is this a better explanation?

Any system connected to public is not secure, but security/infra team should design to prevent attacks. US military is considering cloud computing. Please check the following thread.
