RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:
"It is my opinion that most people are not up to speed on Virtualization Security and Compliance Solutions.
If you can prove that the systems in a mixed mode are not communicating, you should be golden. If your QSA does not agree, it might be time to get a new QSA. Jkjkjkjkj, not really but...
Click here to see what we talked about at VMworld. I was misquoted in this article, Computer World and several others. (I NEVER said QSA’s were ten years behind ;-) ) Seriously, I have some good friends that are QSA’s and they will also be tracking this blog to help answer questions. BTW: This got heated at VMworld during our trusted cloud session."
