Click through for five important considerations for safe configurations of cloud servers that all enterprises should cover before launching into the cloud, as identified by CloudPassage.
Unlike traditional servers, cloud servers are pretty susceptible to outside attack if the right preparations are not made. Many enterprises don't realize or understand that security responsibilities are shared with their cloud service provider. Cloud providers are typically responsible for securing the underlying infrastructure, while the buyer is responsible for securing the specific workloads that will run in that infrastructure for IaaS.

This slideshow features five important considerations for safe configurations of cloud servers that all enterprises should cover before launching into the cloud.
