From Information Week

In what it describes as a move toward greater transparency, Google has provided details about its security practices in a newly published paper.
In an effort to communicate its commitment to the security of its online services, Google on Friday published a paper that delves into its corporate security strategy.



Eran Feigenbaum, director of security for Google's enterprise group, characterizes the paper as an attempt to be more transparent. It would also be fair to characterize the paper as an attempt to counter the perception that Google's online services are somehow less secure than traditional on-premises systems, a claim often made by Google's competitors.

As companies look for ways to deploy applications, both internally and as services to their customers, they worry about scale, performance & visibility. Startup Sonoa Systems offers a solution. Instead of spending money on more security infrastructure for your virtual environment, Solera's V2P Tap promises to regenerate the virtual traffic to your existing security infrastructure, thereby protecting your investment.

"Feeling comfortable storing data in the cloud involves trusting a cloud services provider and the practices and policies they have in place," said Feigenbaum in a blog post. "In today's ultra-connected, Web-capable world, understanding how data will be protected is ultimately more meaningful than knowing it is physically located in one data center or another."
