Product Description


"This worthwhile addition to the growing library of cloud security books contains very helpful prescriptions for security policies and practices." ( Computing Reviews, January 2011)

From the Back Cover

Secure your cloud to maximize its value

Cloud computing is flexible, efficient, and cost–effective, but not without risks. To maximize its potential, you need to fully understand its vulnerabilities and how to offset them.

This guide thoroughly examines cloud fundamentals, architecture, risks, and security principles. Two leadingsecurity experts detail critical approaches and solutions, helping you achieve the maximum return on cloud investments without compromising the safety of your information.

  • Avoid leakage and unauthorized data access among virtual machines running on the same server

  • Properly handle sensitive information

  • Prevent release of critical data to law enforcement or government agencies without approval by the client

  • Follow compliance and regulatory requirements

  • Deal with system crashes or failures

  • Protect against hacker invasions into client applications hosted on the cloud

  • Implement solid, robust security protection

  • Manage interoperability that allows a client to easily move applications among different cloud providers and avoid "lock–in"

All in all one of the best one stop books to introduce you to the security aspects of cloud computing.
Concise, practical, and easy to read, fully using the CIA model and best security practices.

Shovelware 26 Oct. 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was extremely disappointed in this book. It is not an in depth coverage of cloud computing's security issues in any way. It's as if they took a CISSP study guide, added a cursory chapter on "What is Cloud" in the front, then just sprinkled the word "cloud" in on occasion. There's sections on biometrics and wardialing and dumpster diving for God's sake. Save your money and time.

Sorely lacking in Cloud information 13 Feb. 2011
By D.A. Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was very disappointed with this book. This was the first book I purchased and read about cloud computing. It did not cover this subject much at all. It turned out to be a general book about IT security. I was in disbelief and had to go through it a second time to be sure. I had expected much with a title like "Cloud Security: A Comprehensive Guide to Secure Cloud Computing", but this book did not deliver in the slightest. Cloud security is much different that IT security in general. The only reason I gave this book 2 stars instead of one is because it does at least cover IT security in general.
