Most cloud providers are only responsible for protecting the infrastructure that runs these services, while the customer is responsible for security inside the cloud, creating a shared responsibility of both the cloud provider and customer.

IT and security departments face tough security challenges due to the wildly interconnected nature of today’s business environment.
