What have been your customers' three biggest concerns about cloud computing/ cloud services in 2010? How have you addressed their challenges?
Gupta: The key questions we come across were: 1) Is cloud computing secure? 2) Will it provide reliable availability? and 3) Can an organization maintain control over business-critical systems and data that exist in the cloud?
|"It's important to select providers that have security expertise in PCI DSS, HIPAA, GLBA, EUDPD, and other security initiatives."|
