My first interview this year at the 2012 RSA Conference was with Urvish Vashi from AlertLogic. We talked briefly about the recent acquisition of ArmorLogic, but my real interest was the State of Cloud Security Report issued by AlertLogic. It’s an interesting report and gives us some fuel for the debate about which is more secure, cloud or on-premise. But it’s a first effort and raises more questions than it answers and definitely doesn’t answer the ‘which is more secure’ question. It’s hard when you’re comparing apples to cucumbers, which is what AlertLogic has done, unless they’ve normalized the data to take into account that desktops are included in the statistics. Which they fully acknowledge, by the way.
