Default cloud security


i wanted to know who takes care of cloud security? is cloud inherently secure or does the cloud host have to provide security?
how safe is it to take only the security offered by cloud and be satisfied?

cloud security is, to a large extent, taken care of by the application developer. and the cloud hosts provide additional security if necessary. but the security provided by the hosts is not strong enough or reliable enough to trust your data with

Bell pretty much said it all. There are already security measures in place, but it never hurts to be cautious. Research the cloud you are going to be using and find out as much as possible, before you sign up.

it is always advisable to have two or three layers of security for the app. it is about safeguarding confidential data. it depends on how serious you are abt your data. the hosts provide you with some security but it is good to have your own firewall in place too.

The extensive use of virtualization in implementing cloud infrastructure brings unique security concerns for customers or tenants of a public cloud service. Virtualization alters the relationship between the OS and underlying hardware - be it computing, storage or even networking. This introduces an additional layer - virtualization - that itself must be properly configured, managed and secured.
