But the speed of adoption depends on how quickly trust in new cloud models can be established. Some of the growing cloud security concerns include: security of highly virtualized environments from targeted threats and attacks, enabling secure collaboration, protection of the data (isolation, sharing) in a rapid provisioning and de-provisioning environment while experiencing the loss of direct control of security compliance, and privacy parameters.
