Enterprises shouldn’t be lulled into thinking that security is uniform and standardized among cloud hosting companies, said Haseeb Budhani, CEO and co-founder Soha Systems. Writing in the latest online edition of Database Trends & Applications, he observed that “security offerings, as well as support for them, vary across all vendors.”

While industry-wide efforts are underway to ensure more consistent security, “there are no guarantees that a given cloud provider is adhering to any particular standards or practices when it comes to security.” In addition, Budhani added. “Risks can be specific to the particular hosting platform; for example, AWS is built differently than Microsoft Azure.”
